Frederick Gagne’s Disincarnation of the Physical World

Space, matter and time represent the main motifs in Frédérick Gagné’s works. Every panting or print made by the talented artist represents a unique exploration of the industrial an urban environment. His paintings represent the unique disincarnation of the physical world that transcends its physical reality and gradually gets transformed into a surreal, ephemeral universe.

Translating Reality To a Unique Artistic Language

The artist begins his painterly explorations by capturing the elements of urban environment and industrial landscape. Then the artist applies the layer of paint while simultaneously moving between the foreground and the background atmosphere to create his intricate dissections of reality. The outlooks of urban and industrial environments get, reconstructed in several layers, plans, and perspectives. Burred deep under the numerous layers of paint the original image of an urban infrastructure gets replaced by a celestial universe that incredibly graphic and strikingly surreal. These transmissions are usually done on canvas, paper and aluminum, but the artist also creates more complex installation structures that convey the same aesthetics and atmosphere.
