In the Southern
France, during his childhood, René Milone was nurturing an artistic
soul while looking up at the portrays and landscapes his father had
painted for the French movie industry.
Busy with his life,
he let his strong desire to paint on the side until the 90's. Settling
his family in Québec in 98, he decided to give his passion an
outlet with success. Enrolled in the art certificate at Bishop's University,
he takes seriously the path of an artistic carreer. He teaches the Great
Masters'Method to enthusiastic classes, leads an art school and gallery
and gives outdoor worshops.
His paintings are showing
the harmony of his life style with his art work.
between dream and reality, hesitating between reason and illusion,
René Milone welcomes us in his world.
Often, a human character is living in a learnedly plan with vegetation
rich with nuances of all sort, intensified by vibrant personalized colors.
paints the scene with passion and fantasy.
He says that when a character appears on the canvas, the observer is reassured,
pleased, and then, seduced by the story seen. With light and shadow, contrasts
travelling from plan to plan, we feel welcomed in his world. For example, he
said :"In 1982, I took a picture of two little girls under an umbrella,
holding each other with such gentleness that I knew that this moment would
remain on my mind. Lately, 20 years later, I made the two friends appear in
my painting entitled "Wheat field in summertime".
Again, occurs the magic, beauty is in the air !
