Patrice Charbonneau

A seasoned painter and trained architect, Charbonneau’s practice marries the visual language of abstraction with design. The artist approaches his compositions with considered and deliberate attention to the essential characteristics of architectural forms. He begins his compositions with a loose arrangement of lines and planes to create the initial impression of a site. He then builds up the surface with buttery bands of colour and gestural applications of thick translucent paint, sometimes punctuated with surprising punches of aerosol. Charbonneau embraces abstraction as a way of conjuring the particular feeling evoked by a site. His compositions act as a form of visual mapping, which emphasizes that lived space is never neutral, but shaped by habits, culture and experiences.
