Roger Alexandre, 1942

Roger Alexandre, Canadian painter, was born in Montreal. Roger Alexandre taught for a few years before studying painting for two years with Brother Jérôme. This teacher passed on automatist techniques and Borduas’ teachings to his student, a largely self-taught artist. Since then, his work has been featured in many exhibitions in Quebec, the United States and Europe. In recent decades, Roger Alexandre’s style has matured: a stylized and pared down approach with soft colours in camaieu. His canvases encourage contemplation and introspection. This deeply humanist artist creates and directs a boundless world.
