ROBITAILLE, Armand (1945)

Armand Robitaille has been a sculptor for several decades, creating largely abstract pieces from bronze, stone, aluminum, steel, concrete and wood. Since the late sixties, he has presented his work at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, at Université Laval and in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli. Robitaille completed L’arbre de Solidarité (“the solidarity tree”) for the Desjardins Group in 1970 and took part in the inaugural Beaufort International Sculpture Symposium (France) in 2000. For about ten years, he has been producing large aluminum wind turbines designed to rotate as if weightless over water.
