Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran
Montréal, Canada
22 FEBRUARY – 25 MARCH  2017

Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran is delighted to present You Go Disco & I’ll Go My Way, by Vancouver based artist Les Ramsay. This exhibition focuses on a new body of work comprised of paintings, sculptures and embroideries. Continuing a practice that combines textiles with painting, Ramsay’s works are part of an aesthetics of domestic kitsch and folk art in which the boundary between a sincere nostalgia and an underlying irony is increasingly blurred.

Les Ramsay was born in Vancouver where he currently lives and works. He studied fine arts at Emily Carr University of Art + Design, at Universitat de Politecnica in Valencia (Spain) and completed his MFA at Concordia University in 2015. He has taken part in group and solo shows such as Border X, presented at Winnipeg Art Gallery (2016), Retreat of the Horstman at the Field Contemporary in Vancouver (2016), Ignition 10 at the Leonard and Bina Ellen Gallery Montréal (2014), Keep the Glove at Sunset Terrace in Vancouver (2014) or De-Accessioned Group Show at the Cooper Cole Gallery in Toronto (2012). He also has exhibited in Canada, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany as well as in the US. His works can be found in many private and corporate collections such as The Claridge Collection, Medcan and the TD Bank collection.

The artist would like to thank the Canada Council for the Arts for its financial support.
