Portrait 2, peinture, pastel, 20 x 28 po
Bachelor in visual and media arts, Pat Cantin approaches as subject, the portrait abstract, semi-figurative or, as he likes to call it, “the anti-portrait”.
See and feel the emotion of a face other than through the eyes or direct expression.
Without the eyes, the interpretation of a portrait is already perceived very differently from a spectator to another. Read the expression of the proposed character looking elsewhere to finding your bearings then becomes the key.
Pat Cantin works as much with oil, aerosol and acrylic for his production of canvases. Each medium brings a different essence to the work.
