Luc Tessier

Making Hearts Flutter with Colour

Thumbnail Sketches

” The work of art is born of the intelligence’s refusal to reason the concrete.” Albert Camus

Luc Tessier paints hearts. This universal symbolic representation originated in antiquity in association with the fig leave, leading us straight to Dionysus, Greek god of wine, good food and sensuality.

The symbol gains its full significance over a period of time. It was first depicted in red (colour of blood) during the Middle Ages, imparting a carnal, corporal, physical and tangible dimension. It was then conventionally believed that human sentiments emanated from the heart, hence the symbol of sensuality was easily equated with the organ, an association that still holds to this day.

The Mystery and the Emotion

Thumbnail Sketches

“I firmly believe that art is a beautiful way to express my emotions, my moods. What motivates me is to find myself in my studio, in my own space, where I am with my brushes, my paints, my painting and I am able to challenge myself.”

Luminous Impressions

Thumbnail Sketches

“Before judging a painting, seek to understand what the artist wished to express and do not condemn him for the sacrifices he had to make to better render his thought. Ingenuity consists mainly in daring to put forth the necessary efforts, however great they may be.”– Anatole France.

After studies in graphic design, at a time when everything was done by hand, and a fifteen years career of sustained efforts that produced such prestigious logos as Adidas and SNC Lavalin, came the era of digital technology and the infamous Photoshop software which required further training in order to stay abreast of the competition.

Mance Di

Asserted Freedom

Thumbnail Sketches

Original, exceptional, luminous: adjectives that perfectly describe painter Mance Di (www.mancedi.com) as well as her body of work.

She has been painting for nearly twenty years, travelling throughout Québec, from north to south and from east to west, from one artistic event to another, with Bob, her faithful hairy companion. Her paintings leave no-one indifferent. Because of their striking colours immediately catching the eye, yes, but also because of their rather unorthodox subject: nuns!
