  • In the painting Flux, deconstructing and reconstructing the form let me play outside of the bounds; fusing detailed realism with abstraction. The fragmentation felt in today's quick pace of life and the mask we wear in negotiating our day, including online, are reflected in its "moving parts." For this exhibition it plays out in the female experience as shared by a dear friend- one of expectations and seemingly opposing forces in the definition of femininity seen through the media, the home, the workplace, film, advertisement, etc. Creating and maintaining a successful career while being an available mother is similarly such a common pull and concern. I sought to honor her impressions while working in a way that rethinks the painting process as an excited exploration of shape, form, and identity. 

    Daniel Bilodeau’s paintings have been exhibited in solo and group shows in galleries and museums throughout the United States and abroad; including the Peninsula Museum of Art in California, 101/Exhibit in Miami, Sotheby’s New York, and the Guardian Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. His work is featured in numerous public and private collections including those of the Citadel Museum in Canadian, Texas, the New York Law School in New York, New York, and the Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida. Recognized in the Art Renewal Center International Salon and listed in Who’s Who in American Art, Mr. Bilodeau is the recipient of a number of awards and honors including the George Sugarman Foundation Grant and the Leslie T. and Frances U. Posey Foundation Scholarship. His work is included in many private collections and has recently been published by Rizzoli press in The Figure: Painting, Drawing, and Sculpture, a book chronicling the use of the figure in contemporary art. He is the recent recipient of a summer residency in Giverny, France with the Terra Foundation for American Art.

    Mr. Bilodeau’s contemporary realistic figurative and still life works touch on post-modern life, consumerism, and identity. Producing monumental scale works as well as tiny miniatures, Bilodeau blends passages both smooth and textured, graphic and naturalistic in his painting style. Born in Montréal, Canada, Mr. Bilodeau lives and works in New York City, where he earned an MFA in 2013 from the New York Academy of Art.
