Estate of the Artist

Vibrating with energy and audacious painterly bravura, Pointe d’étoile (Star Tip) is an electrifying work from Quebec art’s enfant terrible, Serge Lemoyne. Executed in 1978, it is a stunning example from the artist’s celebrated Bleu-blanc-rouge period. Lemoyne was a champion of art’s democratization; he was dedicated to producing art that was accessible to everyone. Therefore, during a period spanning more than a decade, from 1969 to 1980, he restricted his practice to the three emblematic colours of the Montreal Canadiens hockey team: red, white and blue, a culturally significant trio of colours. Lemoyne’s abstractions are engaging, and viewers can immediately recognize their pop culture reference. Distinguished by its triangular format, this work is part of the Pointe d’étoile series, painted during the mid-1970s. Within the pictorial space, a crisp white chevron, demarcated by thin bands of bare canvas, separates a red and a blue section. The composition’s sharp and deliberate diagonals are contrasted by the gestural painterly drippings in the centre of the work. The effect of this dynamic composition combined with the canvas’s format is one of vigorous movement.

Please note: this work is unframed (as intended by the artist).

The dimensions of each side are as follows: 108 1/4 x 85 1/4 x 66 5/8 inches.
