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.

Danou-Lynn

Keeping an Element of Mystery

On Exhibit

Danielle Tremblay very early made the decision to use an artist’s name, first to dissociate herself from the great number of people bearing the Tremblay name in Quebec and also to manifest her uniqueness as a creator. “I don’t like comparisons, for even if we find commonalities among people or things, nothing is ever exactly the same,” states the artist.

Her family members having been calling her Danou since childhood, it is an obvious choice to which she adjoins her middle name. Hence not entirely fictitious as it is important for her to be herself and maintain her identity. Though it might seem trite at first glance, this simple merge offers us a glimpse of the two poles that characterise her works, namely the high level of imagination they display anchored in a basic style of figurative realism. Danou, is the unbounded wonder of youth, living in a fantasy world and connected to the very heart of creativity. Lynn, is the more formal setting that defines reality, man and his reflections, as well as the connections with matter. Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte.

When words take shape

Delight in Discovery
