About Patrick Pépin
PATRICK PÉPIN IS A CANADIAN CONTEMPORARY ARTIST
Accumulating matter in a controlled disorder, Patrick Pépin creates very charged works whose density surprises the viewer who comes to lose his bearings in front of these imposing mosaics of colors. A tireless globetrotter, he draws inspiration from his travels to create a good part of his raw material.
If his technique fascinates, it is because Pépin uses it to express the duality between the work of matter, both physical and intuitive, and the abstraction of more conceptual ideas. His work introduces current themes such as social division and the environment. For the artist, it is about creating meaningful and authentic material.
Patrick Pépin is a self-taught artist from Lac-Mégantic. He is represented by Galeries Beauchamp, as well as the Whistler Contemporary Gallery in British Columbia, as well as the Conrad West Gallery in Las Vegas. His works can be found in some thirty private collections in Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia. One is on permanent display at the Metro Toronto Convention Center. It is also part of the private collection of the Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul.
