Cessez le Feu

Commissioned by MU, 2016

The completion of the mural “Cessez-le-feu” (Ceasefire) beautifully marks the conclusion of an important series which artist Phillip Adams began in 2012 at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance that is based on the four elements. After an imposingly cloudy sky (L’air du temps, 2012), the majestic St. Lawrence River (Au fil de l’eau, 2013), and a hyper-realistic Mont Royal (Terre d’accueil, 2015), it is with striking contrast that the artist — in creative residence at the Habitations Jeanne-Mance during the production of the mural — gives us the the final element, fire. We find an illustration of the city of Montreal in twilight, seen from the summit of Mount Royal.
