Francois Lacasse : Outpourings Hardback
This is a fascinating global perspective on the career of North American painter, Francois Lacasse.
Objects as much as images: Francois Lacasse's paintings allude to abstract expressionism as developed in the 1950's and are characterized by a material and technical investment in colour.
The artist's major preoccupations concern the formal character of abstract painting, a movement in which he has been a major contender on the Canadian artistic scene for twenty years.
His research on paint's plasticity and the optical effects of colour have been developed using rigorous experimental and observational protocols.
This thoroughly illustrated monograph provides a global perspective of the artist's career.
