Gagnon renders miniscule forms with great accuracy. His work is heightened from his aptitude for color and applying layers. Using small brushes and handling them as he would a pencil, Gagnon is able to achieve forms of illustrative qualities that edge into the peculiar world of Pop Surrealism.
“I create images that question and entertain the discussion of connectivity. Within the stage that is my canvas, I present animals and objects in bizarre manners, placing them in scenes that oppose practicality. My paintings become a space in which nature becomes unnatural, bordering surreal.“
Gagnon’s most recent body of work titled ‘String Theory’ is one that brings viewers into a whimsical, bizarre, and curious world that is loosely based on the leading scientific theory that everything is connected. (bio from artist’s website)
