is Jacques Tremblay?
The main artistic influences for Tremblay's earlier works came from Cezanne's art. Here the artist learned about concept, design and color. Van Gogh's art became a big influence throughout his middle period when the artist perfected his brushstroke and color. But it was not until Tremblay stumbled upon the works of the only Quebec master he knew about, Marc-Aurele Fortin, that his art became "whole."
A conglomerate of these influences, coupled with the artist's intense passion to portray scenes from his past, are all ingredients that lead to the delicate creation of a Tremblay painting.
In his present period the artist is painting on a black background.
Although very complex , Jacques Tremblay is extremely excited about this new period because it is a mix of all his previous styles coupled with what I believe is the most intensely creative period of his life.
