As a graduate of the Bachelor of Visual Arts program at Laval University, Eric Lapointe has been sculpting in bronze for 12 years. He is represented by galleries in Quebec and the United States, and his work has garnered recognition. His sculptures are an explorative creation using the principle of tri-dimensional anamorphous, which creates a paradox between reality and illusion. He attempts to set a formally emancipated representation against a restored image (viewed through a lens integrated in the sculpture) corresponding to our usual view of a given subject. This optical illusion not only serves form itself, but also its own purpose, as Eric's goal is to question the validity of our perception of reality. Through his choice of subjects, he offers to the observer's critical gaze different viewpoints on the modern world.
