Lacerte art contemporain (Montreal) is proud to present the recent works of François Vincent. This exhibition brings together some 20 works on paper and canvas.
“Each of his works is a portable room. It is enough to install it somewhere to be able to withdraw and to find one-on-one with the artist, but also with oneself. A formula of François Vincent, “table of chevet”, effectively summarizes the scope of this experiment. From the mysterious appearance of the place, there is, in short, the feeling that it belongs to them. It is, it seems to me, because they echo the echo of a confidence that has been addressed since the back-world of dreams and the psyche, where our identity floats and clings To all kinds of ageless images, now re-articulated by the painter with the help of his plastic grammar. How can we doubt then that his painting does not bring about a reconciliation between the two sides of intimacy, inner life and connection with the other? I like to think that the art of François Vincent consists in a reflection which evolves until the opening. ”
– Excerpt from a text by Thomas Mainguy
A native of Montreal where he lives and teaches, François Vincent obtained his bachelor’s degree in fine arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal in 1974. A pioneer of contemporary printmaking within the Atelier Circulaire collective, his works have spread widely through The world (Argentina, Canada, Spain, United States of America, France, Japan, Portugal). Winner of the Loto-Québec Print Contest Grand Prize in 1990 and the Jacques-Cartier Arts Prize in Lyon in 1997, his works are included in several private and public collections: Art Bank of Canada, National Bank Canada, National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec and Museum of Contemporary Art of Montreal.
