As 2021 finally comes to an end, annus horribilis in my personal life (death of my mother in France with the inability to go to her bedside + again inability to visit my family given the new health restrictions + my son's cancer ), all my hopes are for 2022. December 2021, month of healing. 2022, the year of rebirth. My son is doing better. He is a "cancer killer" who never for a single moment gave up hope. He fights on a daily basis and, thanks to a revolutionary treatment, a shock medical team, physio, rehabilitation, meditation, Reiki and above all his beautiful positive energy, his tumor has shrunk and the healing process is well underway. He will heal. He knows it. I know it. That being said, what does 2022 tell us? Healing for all. Positive energy. Creation. Renaissance.
January 2022, presentation of one of my works in the window of the SACQ gallery. Continuation and end of my personal exhibition at the Beaulne Museum in Coaticook. I had articles in the press and the museum director did a very nice interview with Radio Canada, of which here is the recording:
February 2022, collective exhibition with the artists of Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures at the National Assembly. And on February 23, I am giving a conference on René Richard on the occasion of this exhibition.
May 2022, personal exhibition in Baie-Saint-Paul.
July 2022, symposium of Cap-Santé.
October 2022, postponement of my exhibition in London.
What else ?
The most important: I have decided to systematically donate 5% of all my sales of works to the research on brain tumors, until the end of time. I get involved with vulnerable people and give artistic workshops in residential centers (CHSLDs and others). I am involved in the board of directors of the Société Artistique et Culturelle de Québec as director of special projects. My artistic side is recognized internationally (Cote Akoun). I will therefore sell my works at a higher price, but some will always go for a good cause. And finally, I have 2 exclusive pages in the magazine
