Francois Cloutier

Through a couple of likes on my blog I was led to the WordPress blog of Francois Cloutier where I was introduced to some innovative dimensional art.  The riot of colour, the layering, the (mostly) geometric patterning and the built-up surfaces are all eye-candy to me.

Essentially, there are no explanations on the work process and how the pieces are constructed but fantastic photos show paint, texture mediums, blocks, possibly fabric and more.  Note: this approach makes me consider whether I’m being too wordy in my blog posts?  Am I taking the allure away from my art by providing too much in the way of explanation?

Anyway, Francois I hope you don’t mind that I’m featuring one of your images on my site this week.  Just post a comment if you’d like it removed.

    No, not at all too wordy! I’m just found your blog and am immensely grateful for your generous sharing … Francois’ work is lovely, but a bit enigmatic.

      Thanks for the response. I’m never sure if I write too much but, having said that, it helps me fix what I’ve been doing in my own head and is a great reference to check back through in the future.
