Denis Leclerc

The recent artworks of Denis Leclerc are part of the discovery of a new pictorial language inspired by recent discoveries in the world of science, in particular by the theory of chaos. Leclerc favours vector images, which allow him to manipulate and transform shapes in a unique way. These can be reproduced to any size he chooses, a characteristic that complements his awe for the infinitely large and the infinitely small. Leclerc also believes that the artist must confront the relevance of his language by collaborating with other artists. It is from this desire for exploration that the Padejo collective was born, of which he is one of the founding members. Leclerc has also taught new media techniques at Glendon College, York University in Toronto and design history at George Brown College. Denis is a member of the Board of Directors of the Canadian Club of Toronto and has sat on the Board of Directors of the Laboratoire d'art.
