ANDRE DESJARDINS

"Visual Emotionism"

 

September 13th and 14th we had an artist reception for French-Canadian artist Andre Desjardins, 

painter and sculptor who explores layers and textures with mixed media techniques to create visually stunning

figurative pieces, fueled by the artist's emotions as a reflection on the mysteries of life, love and the universe.

 

During the exhibition, Desjardins also gave an incredible drawing demonstration, 

which gave insight into his vision and process as the founder of "visual emotionism,"

fusing figurative with the abstract as a representation of humanity.

Desjardins describes his sculpture "Le Grand Saut" or "The Big Jump,"

which represents the courage to take the full leap 

towards your passions and trusting the process of life.

The Final Ske​tch

 

Name

 

Once Desjardins completes the initial sketch, he begins to add dimension and complexity

 with elements such as color and added texture in the form of

shadows, color-blocking, and gold and silver leaf.
