Jocelyn Gasse initially devoted himself to performance art (1972-1975) before shifting his focus to sculpture, installation and painting. His work explores rural and urban landscapes and their themes of desolation, chaos, speed and energy. In addition to teaching, he has held exhibitions both in Canada and abroad, notably at the Musée du Bas-Saint-Laurent (Rivière-du-Loup) in 1986, Galerie Optica (Montreal) in 1988, the Musée de l’Université de Louvain (Belgium) in 1994, and Galerie Magenta (Netherlands) in 1997 and 1999. He has also taken part in group shows, including Paysages verticaux at the Musée du Québec in 1989 and Foire en art actuel (Quebec) in 2013. His work can be found in a number of public and private collections.
