Jacques Descoteaux

Painting, Booth 809

My background is accounting, my passion is art.  While most of my work is oil painting on canvas, I work in a variety of media – acrylic painting on paper, pastel, sculpture. My work is inspired by the landscape of the North, but it goes beyond landscape.  It’s the impression, the mood left by a glance at a sunrise or a night sky, at the clouds, at the horizon.  It is abstract, ambiguous. I’ve studied with many professional artists, including a pastel class with Wolf Kahn in New York. I participated in art residencies in the West coast of Ireland in 2015 and 2019, part of the Cill Rialaig Project.
