Who is Michel Soucy

Michel Soucy – Born in  / Né à Schefferville, Quebec, Canada
I am a Canadian scenic and visual artist who graduated from Central Saint Martin’s College of Arts and Design in London.

My pictorial approach is both assertive and elusive. The canvases include elements that can be clearly seen and others that are only suggested. The viewer’s glance is caught by a promise of things that may or may not be. The etheral nature of the objects gazed upon – frail and delicately painted – takes on a seemingly solid nature.

Je m’intéresse particulièrement à l’image du corps.Inlassablement passées au crible, en peinture comme en photographie, les parties du corps sont examinées d’une manière quasi chirurgicale. Sous l’angle microscopique, la perspective est troublante, le sujet se renouvelle.  Exploration de la tête, de la peau ou des organes… les chairs se muent en textures, concrétions colorées. Elles proposent un nouveau regard sur le corps et l’esprit transfigurés.
