Lacasse - Fragments of Light: Paintings 1930 - 1970

 

‘I do not know why I find the word ‘abstract’ inapt, for I regard the finished (abstract) painting as something that comes to live, a living object in itself and is therefore the opposite of abstract.’ He continues to say that ‘when the (abstract) painting is born, the painting speaks and acts, the painting has its own life, mysterious and sacred.’

 

 

 

Lacasse’s power to awaken a painting, with subtle or intense light play poetically built up from within, inevitably the pulls the viewer into communicating with the artwork. Thus the artist has succeeded to bring out the real integrating and healing powers of art.
