Rene Thibault
"My primary concern in approaching a painting is the subject's potential use for pattern.Deriving inspiration from patterns discerned in natural or man-made forms, I attempt to create an appreciation of the dynamic qualities inherent in those forms.Overall, my visual statements are a culmination of combining those strong patterns with a fine sense of detail.
