I have blogged about Luc Guerard before (see previous blogs), but had only met him through email and telephone. I met him in person on my trip to Montreal and it was pretty much as I expected – art in every square inch of his home-studio and a man who had a lot of interesting things to say about his art. I learned that Luc had “hundreds” more paintings stored in another location in Quebec, and I believed him when he described the stacks of art that are stored there.
Like many artists I meet, Luc is a prolific artist. His work is hung everywhere in his home and much, much more is stored in every small space, like closets and bathrooms. Surprisingly, Luc remembers every piece he created, and that in itself is mind-boggling to me because there is so much of it!
I learned that Luc typically creates abstract works, like the ones pictured here, but he also experiments with portraits, cityscapes, and assembled sculptures. There seems to be no end to his creativity. Every work displayed in his home is a visual delight and it is hard to focus on one in the midst of so many. I think it is easier to show you images of his art, rather than explain the dazzling array of work.
