Mathieu Lacroix


Mathieu Lacroix's multidisciplinary practice comprises drawing, sculpture, installation and performance. The notion of the "sketch" is central to his work, employing it as both a conceptual approach and a literal technique across a spectrum of media, helping to subtly unify his wide-ranging intellectual and formal interests. His drawings showcase architectural spaces and a variety of cyphers and symbols in a suggestive and quietly beautiful manner. He creates unusual environments borrowing from both the domestic space and the commercial. Lacroix's interventions question the complex relationship between the individual and his environment, habits, and identity. His work touches lightly but profoundly on issues from many areas such as politics, economics, personal and collective identities, and perceptual experience.


Mathieu Lacroix is a Montreal-based artist from Drummondville, QC. He holds a BFA from UQAM in Montreal. Mathieu Lacroix has recently exhibited at Clark Center in Montréal, Maison de la culture Côte-des-Neiges in Montréal and CIRCA art actuel in Montreal.
