Miami art events. TJ at Art Fusion Galleries this week. 10 to 17 March 2014. Artists around the World!

The artist known as “TJ” lives and works in Montreal, Quebec. This prolific artist holds a degree in visual arts from the renowned Laval University in Quebec City, Canada. TJ has taken up painting again after a professional career in a related field. When asked to describe his artwork, TJ states,

“My paintings are structured around two poles that are opposed in principle-“chance” and “composition.” As a starting point, I leave a large part to chance and the unexpected, then I provoke “accidents” through which I learn, as I let myself be surprised and guided by playful encounters between matter and color until a line, way or direction appears that can possibly lead to the development of a painting.

This first impulse is preceded by a period of research and experimentation with various materials often diverted from their common use before the painting can actually be “constructed.” This extensive research work results in materials that have ultra mat or super glossy textures, opaque or transparent colors/textures.

It is through this experimental process that a vocabulary is built with and around substances that combine, oppose and/or juxtapose until a final, balanced phrasing is established between expression and structuring.”

TJ’s artwork is currently on exhibition in our Gallery; and, we are pleased to name him our Artist of the Week.
