Featured Artist:
Antoine Becotte

The artistic journey of Antoine started during his studies in visual arts in Sherbrooke Quebec. His curiosity and his desire to make an impression pushed him to continue his studies in the world of graphic communication at Université Laval in Quebec City.

After university, he then puts his talent to the benefit of editorial photography and advertising. At that time, he signed several front covers of Voir Cultural Newspaper in Quebec and is already beginning to make his mark in the advertising landscape. For over 25 years he interweaves the artistic approach to the aesthetics of photography and controlled advertising; one and the other quietly nourish and define his style of communicative art.

This unique motley exudes a perfect balance between having an impact and the desire to be heard. His travels in Japan, China and Spain have had a catalytic effect on him. Inspired by these other ways of doing and thinking, he pushes his vision even further: it seeks to bring to life stories and communicate emotions. This is why he calls his art, art brut, emotional impact. Its structure emerges at the same time the spontaneity of the gesture. He started to exhibit and sell his work six years ago.

Paintings by Artist Antoine Bécotte are complex ones. They put a premium on expressing emotion by applying colours, shapes, and surfaces, in a highly personalized fashion. These sensations are realized through an embodied and suggestive abstraction. It encourages us to recapture the world through the fresh responses of an artist who is ultimately unconstrained by tradition or convention.

While seemingly activated by rigorous underlying design principles that map out the surface structure of the artist’s works in coherent sections laid out in grids, his process involves a decentering, a rejection of absolute value judgements. It also involves an acceptance of paradox, a recognition of relativism, a trust in randomness and chance procedure. Wedded to this fresh perspective is Antoine Becotte’s persuasive emphasis on capturing fleeting perceptions of time and space.
