I build my art around two principal ideas : Colour contrast and the well defined forms of objects in a non traditional perspective. This urges my landscape paintings of Québec villages. Varying according to the seasons my compositions carry shades of orange, green and yellow, or deep violets found in our snowy winters.
Church steeples and the quebecois architecture inspire me to create wonderfully interesting superpositions.
I need to create cold winter evergreens , snow covered pine trees and the last warm days of autumn. At this time of the year there are different variations of lights and shadows that inspire me.
As a regionalist artist, I travel throughout the Eastern Atlantic interpreting all of its splandour with my palette of colours.
Oil is my preferred medium used in a '' painting on canvas '' method. On occasion I create large format witch give vibrancy to my painting.
About Mario Beaudoin
Mario Beaudoin is a painter whose reputation has grown tremendously with works showing across the country and internationally. Drawing from his Quebecois heritage and his joie de vivre, Mario's paintings express his passion for color and form. His paintings engage us with the abstraction of physical and personal landmarks while flattening form into shape, and in his daring and balanced use of color. Mario writes of art making, “I am energized by cold winter nights, snow covered pine trees and the last warm days of autumn, all of which exhibit different variations of lights and shadows. I can't resist the drama as well as the serenity of an old church steeple and the Quebecois architecture rising out of a quiet village to inspire me to create painting that reflects scenes I have enjoyed all of my life.”
