MICHAEL ST-GERMAIN

This week on art we are focusing on one of the biggest influences in my life, my uncle, Michael St-Germain. St-Germain’s studio practice alternates between orchestrating controlled accidents and piling up material to bury the past.

Michael’s modernist-inspired works are made of plaster bandages, a material often associated with mending broken bones. He believes that “Plaster is a visually poetic material reminiscent of sun-bleached sea shells, ocean-tumbled stones and dried out bits of bone.”
