The subjects represented will be reflected in a retrospective section of his 20 + 1 year career and new works; thus illustrating an imaginative journey…
“I immortalize moments, emotions that create a story representing the daily life of humans, flora and fauna, notes the artist. Stop time, create magical moments, see life differently.”
About Jocelyn D’Amours
To enter the world of Jocelyn D’Amours is to discover simplified beauty. This innovative painter favors linear gestures and knows how to translate, in a few vivid strokes, the essence of the themes he stages.
Mr. D’Amours has developed the art of expressing a lot with a little. His objective is achieved when he succeeds, from a few strokes, in evoking the formal character of his subject. Its reputation has already crossed borders. His work has been rewarded with 2 international prizes; including a prize awarded by the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts (SNBA) of Paris, in December 2010.
About the exhibition
