L'INCUBATEUR DE MARIO CYR http://mariocyr.com/incubateur
This is a photo of Mario Cyr, professional artist, working during one of his Incubator events. Mario prepares questions of aesthetics and philosophy for a structured discussion and debate as he uses the conversation to inspire his abstract paintings. It is fascinating to see how Mario complete a work in one session as he paints, removes paint, and works over the canvas with rags and brushes.
Wednesday evening, Mario led another sort of Incubator at the Café des Artistes. The question for debate was " Is the artist an object?" with quotations from Modernist painters. The discussion was lively following a delicious meal at the Café Aberdeen in the Aberdeen Cultural Center, Moncton, N.B. Mario was not painting this time! Go to his web site for more information and images of his work.
The Café des Artistes meets once a month for the exchange of ideas and encouragement among artists.
