Artist’s Statement

My work is inspired by landscapes where light transforms the reality into an invention of shapes and colours.  I like to boil down the idea of landscape into a simple horizon, sometime hidden, and then explode it with light and colour. I explore the boundaries between figuration and abstraction to create a space based on memories, somewhere between seeing and feeling. The works are characterized by the simplicity of composition, strong clours, high contrasts and bold strokes.

I strive to produce work that provides a compelling visual experience in its own right. The semi-abstract nature of my work, my bold compositions and my dynamic use of colour help portray the Canadian northern landscape in a vivid and surprising way.
