BIOGRAPHY

Both contemporary and decidedly ornamental, Louis Laprise`s art demonstrates a mastery of the random. An amazing colourist, his universe consists of organic forms whose lively gestures originate in the grain of wood. It is through this kind of lyrical abstraction that figurative illusion arises, allowing the viewer to channel his own imagination and to see himself reflected in the polished, mirror-like surface of the work. 

Thompson’s Contemporary met Louis Laprise at Art Toronto 2012 and have since enjoyed a burgeoning working relationship. Both contemporary and decidedly ornamental, Louis Laprise`s art demonstrates a mastery of the other-worldly.

Louis studied Interior Design as well as the printmaking technique - etching; these two disciplines’ have been crucial to the aesthetic of his artistic approach. Behind these beautiful abstract pieces lies a wealth of experimental experience.
