Question 11: Which artists or artistic styles have influenced you? How does this play out, in concrete terms?

Transcription


Being trained in the 1970s means that I was influenced by the formalist movement in Quebec at that time. This has stayed with me and was very present in my work for an extended period. It’s more subtle today. I’m influenced by that approach but I’m just as comfortable with the expressionist approach as the formalist. I’ve often tried to combine both types of approaches in my work.
