Sebastien Gaudette

Focused on paper, Sébastien Gaudette’s artistic work can be seen as an analysis of the creative process developed by matter, movement and illusion. Its primary purpose is to immortalize the spirit of paper through the study of gesture. Folded, wrinkled or torn paper becomes its narrative thread. The artist does not consider paper as a two-dimensional surface, but rather as a material that allows itself to be modeled and where modification is an integral part of his process of pictorial composition. It is through drawing, sculpture and installation that his creations take its shape.

Sébastien Gaudette (b.1984, Montreal) holds a Bachelor’s degree in visual arts from UQAM (2015). His work focuses mainly on paper and object crumpling, furthering his reflection on the collapse of the material as well as on the action of folding. His work has been selected and presented as part of several exhibition projects; at Mont-St-Hilaire’s Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Bas-St-Laurent Rivière-du-Loup, National Exhibition Center of Jonquière, as well as Cirque du Soleil. His work also has been exhibited at several art fairs including the Art of Paper in Miami and the Saint-Lambert Contemporary Art Fair. Some of his pieces are now part of various public and private collections. Sebastien currently lives and works in Montreal, Canada.
