“I once thought if I ever wrote a book on my life one day, I would want it entitled “The extraordinary story of an ordinary life.”-René Lalonde
Martin Lawrence Galleries (MLG) discovered the glory of Rene Lalonde at the New York Art Expo nearly 20 years ago, and has been exclusively showcasing his work ever since. Blending the traditions of surrealism, cubism and fauvism, Lalonde grabs viewers with both the emotional force of vivid and unusual color and the simplicity of flattened out planes. And along the way, it charges everyday life with extraordinary intensity. Lalonde’s work inspires joy and elicits smiles. Lalonde is an artist who works with the vibrancy and intensity of color, yet somehow projects a sense of calm, serenity-an easygoing buoyancy-in his work. His use of house imagery intentionally conjures up coziness, warmth and the security we are all searching for in life.
“The primary goal for me is to create images with one idea in mind – To bring a sense of pleasure to the viewer, whether it is peace or joy or stillness”.-René Lalonde
Rene Lalonde was born into a working-class Montreal family, and bought his first serious sets of paints, brushes and canvases at age 12. As the 1960s unfolded, Lalonde was swept up in the excitement of rock and roll, the Beatles and the artistic movements that helped spawn the psychedelic revolution. His works “Isn’t Love All We Need” and “Sunset in Modernopolis” are influenced by his fauvist approach with color values and characteristics that are precise and descriptive. He attended the L’Ecole du Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal-a school attached to The Montréal Museum of Fine Arts-and discovered the Cubism of Picasso and the color and infused light of Parrish and Chagall. To date, his career includes over 175 solo exhibits worldwide.
Come join Martin Lawrence Galleries for a memorable exhibition by contemporary artist René Lalonde showcasing fascinating new original works on canvas. Celebrate with the special people in your lives and celebrate “The Art of Love”.
