L’HEUREUX, René

René L’Heureux’s work consists primarily of public pieces integrated into architecture or the environment. One of these is a sculpture in Granby entitled Renaissance I (1986), composed of seemingly abstract geometric elements whose symbolism is described on a bronze plaque: the sphere represents life, the closed ring represents protection and the open ring represents openness to the universe. His other works include Côté cour, côté jardin, unveiled in 1992 at Place Julien-Hamelin in Granby; Sans titre (1997), a work that plays upon the contrast between symmetry and asymmetry, is located on the outer wall of the CLSC Longueuil-Ouest. L’Heureux has also served on numerous cultural committees and is a founding member of many art organizations.
