Shawn Ardoin is a passionate artist. He is passionate about fish. He is passionate about the simple shapes of circles and squares. He is passionate about strong, rich, bold color. Combine these passions and the unique art of Shawn Ardoin comes to life on canvas.
His primary foundation is acrylic, sometimes incorporating a clever use of mixed media, which causes his work to expolde with texture. Each material is used to enhance or represent a circle or a square. The work is versatile and in some cases can be displayed either vertically or horizontally. People don't seem to tire of looking at Ardoin's paintings. They are dramatic compositions that demand constant attention.
As Ardoin says of his approach to creating a painting, "I begin with the end. I envision the final composition as a solution to an equation. The solution is achieved when I have found a final balance and harmony of shapes and colors." it is then he begins his next equation and creates anew.
