Louis-Bernard St-Jean

Louis-Bernard creates sculptural oil paintings reminiscent of the splendours of nature and architecture, combining organic patterns and heavy texture to create bold impressionistic compositions that possess a distinctive depth, structure and movement. Using a unique sculptural technique, he shapes the texture by carving and tearing thick layers of pure oil paint with a palette knife, giving it a peculiar tactile quality.

“I try to push beyond the figurative by making abstraction of any defined form and focus instead on the general impact conveyed by the piece as a whole.” Louis-Bernard St-Jean received the People's Choice Award for the piece Rhapsody in Blue at the annual "Brush Off!" 2015 Juried Painting.
