- Today2014André Desjardins - Artiste-peintre et sculpteur
The essence of life emerges with every stroke of Desjardins’ brush, every texture and nuance, transforming the empty canvas into a statement about the mysteries of life, love and our universe itself. His thoughts become real and hidden faces break free from chaos, giving an almost serene and tranquil feeling, while muted and subtle colors coax one into a dreamlike state of viewing the mysteries that Desjardins has revealed.
André’s passion for life and the stories told in the faces of humanity developed early and have continued to evolve. Today he devotes his time, energy, and passion to translating emotions into images of timeless beauty and humanity.
André Desjardins’ paintings are poetry. He conjures up life through lines, colours and textures as others do through words. His works are communicative; they talk, they listen. They grab, entice and seduce. They touch.They demonstrate a fine mastery of depth, both pictorial and human.
