Biography: Vincent Bernier Born 1977 in Greenfield Park, Quebec, Canada Vincent studied painting at Concordia University, Montreal where his interest in the human body as the subject of art had already become a focus in his student work. Later Vincent worked with recycled materials to create images that took a deceptively decorative form. Vincent has developed a style that he refers to as ‘constructed painting’ for which he assembles a collage of fragmented objects, frequently gaining inspiration from the works of old master’s. This collage foundation is then worked upon using various media to create the finished piece. The composite forms he creates on reclaimed boards from thrown elements have a sense of the monumental, whatever their size. A sensuality of form and texture can be found in every piece, justifying his sold out exhibitions throughout the years. His work explores the ‘pop constructivist’ style he has cultivated through works built up using layers of recycled images, paint and other mediums. The principal subject he examines in much of his work is the human form and sexuality. This subject has gained much acclaim from people that have had opportunity to view work throughout Vincent’s various noted exhibitions. His merciless vision has contributed much to the controversy his art has always aroused and to his undoubted greatness. His first exhibition, ‘The transfiguration of Jeanne Moreau’ was held in Montreal in 2003 followed later by exhibitions at the Centre Stage for Performing Arts in Peterborough, Ontario and The Art Road Station in 2004. Vincent’s most recent show was a major exhibition in 2005 at Kola Note and the other on a smaller scale at Stereo, Montreal. Vincent is now living and working in the UK.
