Cordo, Vincent

Cordo, Vincent

Medium : mixed media

Born in Saint-Hyacinthe, in 1972.

While on a stroll in the Old Montreal, Cordo met Lysanne Pépin, a Montreal painter who has her art studio on Saint-Paul Street. This encounter was to change Cordo’ s life forever. It also instigated a passion deep inside of him that he had, beforehand, no knowledge of. Another turning point in Cordo’ s life was seeing one of Toulouse- Lautrec’s paintings. This provoked the artist in Cordo to emerge.

After 10 years of exploration, Cordo finally discovered a form of expression that he personified. Through the female character, Cordo’s creative expression is brought forth. He tends to capture the modern woman who has to co-exist with the many facets of everyday life.

The modern woman needs to be professional by day, mother in the evening, and mistress when night falls. Modern woman must juggle with many different lives. The modern woman is aware that life today offers nothing permanent. She must be in constant movement and always alert.

When one gazes upon a Cordo painting, one is transported into a universe that is tinted with softness and voluptuousness. The atmosphere in Cordo’s paintings is accentuated by the various mediums he uses; such as the glossy varnish, the insertion of words, and the wood pieces. All of these elements are there to enrapture the viewer. His women are sometimes charming, mystic, or imbued with desire.

The setting in Cordo’s paintings brings one to search the same momentary evasion and bliss that his female characters project.
