In his home world of the Saguenay Marc is motivated by the exceptional beauty of the landscape and the unique environment of the fjord. The Nordic landscape has always been a source of inspiration. His work is characterized by the priority given to the atmosphere, the casual brushstroker and the richness of color. His palette, sometimes subtle, sometimes fauve, adjusts to suit the ambiences he wants to create. “I firmly believe that figurative art, especially the landscape, remains very current if it transcends the narrative. In a way it becomes a basis for experimenting with gestures, color and light.” Marc’s work are found in many public and private collections in Canada and abroad.
Art Lab is honoured to have Marc join our faculty of highly qualified instructors.
A list of suggested colors will be sent to you prior to the course.
