Each print presents a pairing of images in two vibrant colours : historical artworks in printmaking by Crispijn van de Passe and Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem, superimposed with figures from vintage and current advertising.

As suggested in the project’s title, the idea is to put forward the homoreoticism in the mythological or advertising hero figure. The project was triggered especially by my discovery of the very sexy works by 16th century Dutch printmaker and painter, Cornelis Cornelisz van Haarlem. As well, h_éros is a continuation of my earlier printmaking projects such as L’Air/Maillol and La cuisine, which I have developed in the 1990s (printed by Peter Braune at New Leaf Editions in Vancouver) and Tendresses in the early 2000s (printed by Francine Turcotte at Atelier Presse Papier in Trois-Rivières).
