For over thirty years, Richard-Max Tremblay has maintained a multidisciplinary practice that explores the limits of painting, photography and video. His vast and ambitious practice resists easy categorization, occupying a place on the margins of predetermined artistic fields. The artist began to teach himself photography during a stay in London in 1979-1980. Among his first projects, he photographed transat-style folding chairs in Hyde Park, which later inspired a series of semi-abstract paintings and introduced the fundamental interaction between painting and photography that has characterized his work ever since.
