Part of my "Things and Stuff" series, "Fragment" explores how identity is constructed for different instances of ourselves, and how different parts of one's identity and personality come together to create something that is greater than the sum of its parts. This piece is made of oil pastel and acrylic paint on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished black edges. It comes satin varnished and ready to hang.

Getting to Know Maxime

Maxime Cousineau-Perusse is working towards his graduate degree in Psychology at McGill University in Montreal. A self taught artist, he has been drawing and painting for as long as he can remember. His work often grows out of a particular feeling or emotion, which he then captures through his expressionist figurative paintings. He focuses on the parts of our bodies that express who we are, such as our lips, eyes and body language, exaggerating these features with informal composition and dramatic color. His work is closely related to his study of psychology, both in that it provides him with a therapeutic process, and it allows him to translate his research of the human psyche into visual form.
