Painting is a passion, an appetite that comes alive on canvas from within the deepest thoughts and observation of the artist. It might be a reconstruction of what I see or a complete construction of how I feel.

I make no attempt to reproduce the obvious, but rather, provide a visual experience defined by a family of forms, colours and textures with my pallet knives. Shapes of all kinds can be found in nature, architecture, and still life. These shapes appear on canvas with filled and unfilled spaces as well as lines plastered in multiple layers of paint. Sometimes, themes lead to a deeper exploration, resulting in several canvases sharing repeated elements.

Such was the case of my Aurora series, Purple Haze and Primary Colors. During the isolation of 2020, I developed a second iteration of the Aurora theme. In 2021 I added on to my city scapes, which gradually evolved into a new series. The added level of abstraction in my scapes has permitted me to be liberated from subject matter, giving the observer the opportunity to explore and interpret freely.


“La peinture est une passion, un appétit qui prend vie sur la toile à partir de l’imagination et de l’observation les plus profondes de l’artiste. Cela peut être une reconstruction de ce que je vois ou une construction complète de ce que je ressens.”

Je ne cherche pas à reproduire l’observé, mais plutôt à fournir une expérience visuelle définie par une famille de formes, de couleurs et de textures avec mes couteaux à palette. Des formes de toutes sortes peuvent être trouvées dans la nature, l’architecture et la nature morte. Ces formes apparaissent sur la toile avec des espaces remplis et non remplis ainsi que des lignes plâtrées dans plusieurs couches de peinture. Parfois, les thèmes mènent à une exploration plus approfondie, résultant en plusieurs toiles partageant des éléments répétés.

C’était le cas la série Aurora, Purple Haze et Primary Colors. Pendant l’isolement de 2020, j’ai développé une deuxième itération du thème Aurora. En 2021, j’ai complété mes paysages urbains, qui ont progressivement évolué vers une nouvelle série. Le niveau d’abstraction supplémentaire dans mes paysages m’a permis de me libérer du sujet, donnant à l’observateur la possibilité d’explorer et d’interpréter librement.
