    Colourful Vibrations

    François Faucher

    Great Encounters

    With their chromatic intensity and figurative spatial organisation, François Faucher’s paintings are permeated with soaring lyricism. His exceptional body of work, resolutely lively, appears to be dancing to its own musical score. The artist has invented a unique technique which incorporates a vibrational effect to the painted elements that approximates musical art. The resulting overall ambience is one of movement and vibrant warmth. Behold an artist who is celebrating forty years of artistic creation.

    Born in Thetford Mines, in 1959, François Faucher has always loved to draw. As a youngster he is gifted with a starter painting set which sets him on the path of creation. From the age of 16, he exhibits his works annually. But, despite his growing interest, he is not yet considering a professional artistic career. He rather chooses architecture, which he practices on the lower north-shore for six years. Then, while one day listening to Claude Dubois’ melancholic rendering of the “Blues du businessman”, he experiences a burst of passion for the arts and, at 40 years old, he quits his practice to pursue his artistic career. Never having stopped painting, François Faucher is a self-taught artist who has participated in Albert Rousseau’s famous open workshops and is inspired by Iacurto, Le Sauteur, Picasso and Van Gogh.  Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte.

    Passion Red

    Lynn Garceau

    On Exhibit

    Having been raised in a family of artists, it was foreseeable that painting would someday be part of Lynn Garceau’s life. A more than likely prospect indeed as she believes the discipline has literally chosen her and that she would have been unable to follow a different path. She is however in her early thirties when the call becomes really insistent, pressing her to devote more of her time to art, with ever increasing ardour. Passionate about flowers, tulips, peonies and poppies are prominent in her paintings, sometimes depicted in close-up, sometimes as part of a spanning panorama that allows for a quasi-abstract treatment.

    “I can’t imagine my life without flowers. It’s a penchant that runs in our family, transmitted from one generation to the next. This theme is part of my life and is certainly here to stay, especially since there is such a quantity of locations when we can watch them bloom.” Starting with La Mauricie National Park where she’s been going every week for a very long time, the Annual Tulip Festival in Ottawa and the wonderful gardens of Les Hémérocalles de l’Isle, located in Bécancour, that count more than twenty thousand cultivars. She has also been to Algonquin Park, located between Georgian Bay and the Ottawa River in Ontario, kayaking to discover the aquatic flora and the twisted pines that were so well depicted by Tom Thompson. And then there are Monet’s gardens in Giverny, the Alhambra gardens in Spain, as well as Provence where she can follow in Van Gogh’s footsteps. She also visited the Antilles where the light is so different and where she had the opportunity to paint exotic species depicted in flowerpots on smaller sized canvasses.  Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte.
