ROGER LEMOYNE: DETAILS OBSCURS
SEPT 12 – OCT1, 20101
A retrospective of the work of Roger Lemoyne, this exhibit features some of
his most eloquent images from many of the world’s troubled regions. Although
lyrical and touching, the images are not light fare. The subject is modern
warfare and Lemoyne, who has documented the turmoil in Rwanda, Bosnia,
Kosovo, Afghanistan, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Israel and Palestine among others,
vividly captures all its horror. In his distinguished tenure as a photojournalist
Roger Lemoyne has always tried to show the intimate and human side of the
conflict; the everyday lives of people who are not the subject of mainstream
news stories, who in their marginalization are nearly invisible and whose lives
have been entirely destroyed by these conflicts. In the spirit of the journalist
and traveler Lemoyne says, “It comforts me to think that my photographs can
contribute to our collective understanding of what transpires in other parts of

What is intuitive and what is rational? What is physical reality as opposed to spiritual reality? How do we find a balance between order and spontaneity? Where does the mystery of our own beings meet the tangible and explainable? What can art express that logic cannot? These are all questions that preoccupy me and inform the making of my art. I have continually worked on a variety of themes. They have included, over many years, the language of space and spatial relationships, written text-like drawings, fields of rhythmic movement, gestural figure drawings expressing a state of being and three-dimensional assemblages which bring together diverse elements to create a new entity. Underlying these themes is a search for a visual language that communicates outwardly an inner meaning. I have had wonderful opportunities to work with artists of various disciplines such as projects with musicians, writers and choreographers which have expanded the dialogue of this inner language. Ultimately art becomes the means to resolve these paradoxes between the physical and the spiritual, order and spontaneity, logic and intuition, and inner meaning and outer tangibility.
Lorraine Pritchard was born in the Canadian Prairies of Manitoba. The work has been influenced by the patterning and spatial relationships of the vast plains. As a visual artist her work includes drawings, painting, and constructed assemblages. The underlying motivation of the artist is a search for a visual language that expresses the interrelationship of spiritual and physical reality. Her work has been exhibited in Canada, France, Belgium, United States and Japan (Canadian Embassy in Tokyo). She currently lives and works in her studio in Montreal.
