François Trottier is a painter from Montreal. He explains his vision:
Curiosity, a taste for exploration, seeing and comprehending things differently, these are the motivations behind my painting.
Starting from the purity of a blank canvas, I create a movement, a colour, an impression. I call upon all my senses. I do not decide at the outset what the end result will be. I welcome resonance which comes from the act of creating…I let myself be guided by gesture.
I prefer materials that dry gradually. Oil paint works at the gentle rhythm of time, breathing life into the emotions that I feel. Acrylic paint, watercolour and Chinese ink have led me to equally valuable discoveries.
The act of creating has given me the freedom to express myself and has been the sole guiding force toward self-fulfillment. No restrictions.
No boundaries. Always open. Forever curious…
