In his art practice, Jean-François Lauda adopts an intuitive approach to painting. His exploration of raw materials is translated through the slow formal transformations that arise thanks to the experimental dimension of his work process. In exhibiting the deliberate marks of actions of accumulation and erasure, his compositions reveal their own making: traces of regrets, memory of past actions, heterogeneous temporalities.
Jean-François Lauda lives and works in Montreal. He participated to the 30th Symposium d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul in 2012 and took part in the Painting Project at Galerie de l’UQAM in 2013. His work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, at VSVSVS, Galerie Erin Stump Projects, and Angell Gallery; in Montreal, at Battat Contemporary, Vie d’ange, Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran and Fondation Molinari; as well as in San Francisco, at Romer Young Gallery. His works are part of private and corporate collections such as Hydro-Québec, National Bank of Canada and TD Bank in Toronto.
