ABOUT THE ARTWORK
“A Moment of Enchantment” was the fifth painting that is part of the “Moment” collection. Two or three times a year, I go off on a tangent for several weeks to paint something different and experiment with another art style applying my colorist techniques. It is my way of refreshing myself after painting landscapes for a few months.
In this series, it was my first attempt to paint the form of a person and not a landscape or some urban space. Since one of my colorist techniques is to minimize the details in a painting; I basically applied the same approach by making the hands, feets and faces very vague. After completing the first moment painting, I decided to do a series and to duplicate the colorist techniques that I used but to express, in these subsequent paintings, a different state of mind by using a different position and facile expression.
Most of my artwork is created in my studio located in Gatineau, Quebec. The landscape scenes of mountains, fields, rivers, and lakes that I totally love to recreate are from photographs that I have collected over the years and bursts of inspirations when I was doing walkabouts somewhere in the backwoods. It is to these landscapes and memories that I apply my colorist art style, my own brand of perspective and unique painting methods.
I am the type of artist who enjoys experimenting with new painting products and mixing various visual art mediums to create an effect to achieve something special in a painting. This has allowed me to discover incredibly unique techniques that now defines my artwork and my artist portfolio. I also experiment on a regular basis with different art styles such as abstract, rupestral and portraits where I apply the same distinctive techniques and brilliant colors to produce paintings that even, on occasion, surprise me personally.
