While Ulysse Comtois had focused on sculpture in the 1960s, in the 1970s he returned to painting using a form of exaggerated pointillism shown here in Matière-Lumière.

Comtois used this technique to explore the effects created by juxtaposing strokes of contrasting colour.

In 1978, the Government of Quebec awarded Comtois the prestigious Paul-Émile Borduas Prize for his contributions to the provincial and international art scenes.
