Jean-Michel Correia’s unique approach is interpreted as a continual quest, in which geometry plays an essential role. Based on architectural proportions, the painter uses a pre-established grid to develop a series of sensory arrangements. The grid is then used to render various perspectives, to apply colour and materials, and to create textures.
Originally from France, artist Jean-Michel Correia has been established in Montréal for many years. His academic background in architecture and fine arts led him to studio arts, which he has been practising for 35 years. At once colourful and minimalist, his works have been exhibited in cities such as Paris, New York, Miami, and Seoul. Jean-Michel Correia has taught in the Design department of the Faculté de l’aménagement at the Université de Montréal, and in the Master’s program in Pratiques artistiques actuelles at the Université de Sherbrooke. He is also a curator, an art critic, and a doctoral candidate in Études et pratiques des arts at UQAM.
