The Artist: René Derouin (Canadian, 1936)
René Derouin was born in Montréal and lives in Val-David, in the Laurentians. For over forty years, the explorations of this multidisciplinary artist have taken him on successive journeys in which he has probed the continental identity of the Americas, from North to South.
His works are found in many national and international collections testimony to the excellence of his art. They include the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Musée de la civilisation du Québec, Bibliothèque du Québec, Bibliothèque nationale de France, National Gallery of Canada, Glenbow Museum in Calgary, Museo Tamayo de Arte Contemporáneo Internacional and Museo Universitario del Chopo, both in Mexico City, Loto-Québec, National Bank and numerous private collections.
The Story: As far back as 1955, he became interested in pre-Columbian cultures and began to learn about Mexican mural art. He has also pursued his investigations in the Far North of Québec. In seeking his roots, he has delved into the notion of being “American,” digging deep into cultural and territorial memories, as well as questions of migration and the mixing of cultures, past and present. The result is an exemplary, highly current artistic practice, itself culturally mixed and baroque, which ranges from printmaking and drawing to sculpture and installation.
