    François Michel Beausoleil

    Statement

     

     

    Life can never fully bloom for any one individual until their passion is found. My name is Francois Michel Beausoleil and my passion is to paint.

     Painting has become my own language, scribed through gentle or furious strokes of the brush.  It continues to develop as I speak through my art every day of my life.

    Originally from Montreal, Quebec, Canada I have been painting, since I can remember. As an adolescent, I started traveling the world on my own and as a flight attendant.

    I spent three long years in the Middle East, where everything is beige and everyone is dress in black and white.  I ceased to work in realistic colors. I can say that my style changed on my departure from the harsh and crying doldrums skies of Saudi Arabia. Since then I have hung my own sun in the sky.  It follows me day-by-day warming the skin of my subjects. My world changed forever in a wave of orange and yellow hues that is so often characteristic of my work. The quietness of the desert made me step into the realm of deity or spirituality.

    I boost the needle gauging form and realism into something of a frenzy, by juxtaposing hidden detail with abstraction of environment and hue.  The form is idealized, while allowing a flip of the color wheel.  It is as if the tinting knob behind one’s eyes had been permanently tweaked; my environments are elaborated and permissive, barring nothing but the unattractive. 

    Like an eager student of linguistics that begins to dream in the language of their studies, my style influences my vision every moment, walking or dreaming.  Ideas pile in frantic layers, fresh visions on top of those born years ago, so that time allows only a small percentage of them to ever be.

    An idea may stem from my love of history, of individual stories cultures, which hide behind every pair of stone, monument or people I see. Light and shadows bring me back to the realm of Deity.

    I can call the whole of my work “The Human Experience”.

    Public reception September 3, 2016
    5-8 pm

    Sophie’s Kensington Gallery presents artist François Michel Beausoleil in The Human Experience Translated into Energy, Time Flow and the Concept of a Holographic Universe. François’ ideas stem from his love of history, individual stories and culture, as well as the flow of energy that hides in plain sight. “I see it as light and shadow, that bring these images to the realm of Deity,” states Beausoleil. The Human Experience translated into Energy, Time Flow and the Holographic Universe are oil paintings inspired by sculptures from around the world and all cultures. According to the artist, “Shadows and color help us connect to all the elements of life, past and present, and with the flow of time and energy.” François believes that by examining ourselves through our inner worlds and the emotional connections we make with the outside world, we can elevate our human condition
