“In a painting I look for truth, sentiment and solace.” – Marc Grandbois
From the first handshake I am seduced by the authenticity of the painter. In person, he exudes the aloofness and laughing manner of the greats. The attitude of those in the know, who paint to transmit their knowledge with a blend of sensitivity and sensuality they spread all over the canvas with confident gestures, unbridled, without any constraints.
The obvious force that emanates from the artist’s works attests of his passion for painting. Fulfilled, happy, passionate and confident, the man is imbued with beneficent humility.
For Marc Grandbois, as for all the great painters, painting is everything but reasoned, it is something felt, imperceptibly, a game of the mind, a combination of timid and bold gestures. But for Grandbois, the feeling is intense; should he find inspiration in a woodsy location, he must immediately satisfy his desire to express himself on canvas.
