Francine Laurin

The Pursuit of Beauty

Forms, Volume and Space 

Arched back, hands outstretched towards heaven: Francine Laurin’s sculptures have an ethereal quality. Filled with a sense of wonder at their grace and airiness, we readily forget they are cast in bronze.

Born in Lachute, Québec, in 1951, the artist always knew she would embark on a creative path. At 10 years of age, she was fascinated with Armand Vaillancourt’s burnt wood sculptures. After a few initial attempts and a first exhibition of ceramic figures, she starts exploring a variety of materials and soon develops a true passion for sculpture. She begins her artistic training with plastic art studies at the Cégep level, followed by studies in painting, sculpture and ceramics at UQAM.
