Charged with visceral energy, a torrent of paint, charcoal and pastel streams diagonally across the canvas. From right to left, soft grey striations swell, then fade, accentuated by black and white splatters. The overall composition feels intensely gestural and unrestrained. However, the remarkably spontaneous and expressive splashes of Jacques Hurtubise’s Salamala are not what they seem. These spills are not accidental, but instead deliberate, expertly contoured constructions that have been part of the artist’s practice since the mid-1960s. In 1970, he began using small square canvases, painted as individual works and then secured together to form a grid, allowing him various options. Salamala, executed in 1974, consists of 12 individual square canvases. When discussing the work, Alain Parent, former curator at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, stated, “[Salamala’s] pictorial character, the direction of the flowing of acrylic, and the rubbed charcoal effect are as radical in their expressiveness as the decomposition of space implied by the total separateness of one square to another (each square possessing an autonomy relative to the overall space defined).”
