Michael Dumontier's work is marked by a process of reduction, material experimentation and minimal intervention. A multidisciplinary artist, his practice encompasses drawing, painting, sculpture and collage. His use of simple gestures and subtle cues may occasionally offer a minimal narrative. Michael lives and works in Winnipeg, MB.
Much of Dumontier's practice involves collaboration, most notably by being the founding member of the Royal Art Lodge collective. Although RAL concluded officially in 2008, he continues to collaborate with Neil Farber, and the two come together every Wednesday to paint and write. Michael also maintains an ongoing collaboration with Toronto-based artist Micah Lexier. Other past collaborators include Tom Elliott, Todd Martin, Paul Butler and Guy Maddin (The Keyhole Experiment).
Michael has had solo exhibitions in Winnipeg, Toronto, New York, Boston, and Padua, Italy. The Royal Art Lodge has had solo exhibitions in New York (The Drawing Center), Toronto (Power Plant), Los Angeles (MOCA), Dublin, Madrid, Brussels, Burgos, London, and produced a major commission for the 2008 Liverpool Biennial. Dumontier's work is part of numerous international private and public collections such as The National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), The Winnipeg Art Gallery, The Vancouver Art Gallery, Folkwang Museum (Essen, Germany), FRAC Picardie (Amiens, France), Fondation Antoine de Galbert (Paris, France), and Centro de Arte Caja de Burgos (Burgos, Spain).
