Paquet, Michel

Michel Paquet 1948-1990

Medium : gouache, oil

Born in Thetford Mines, Quebec.

Michel Paquet received a degree in science from the University of Montreal in 1977. He then studied educational psychology at the University of Sherbrooke, visual arts at the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivières, and finally art history at the University Laval in Quebec city. After a few years of doing abstract painting, he returned to figurative painting. He painted mostly with oil, and he loved to experiment with all types of support : jute, canvas, compacted materials and often with kraft paper. In his work, lines are generally simple and subtle, drawn in a rather monochromatic palette.

Paquet’s paintings continue to fascinate because of their simplified compositions and the balance achieved between tones.
