Pierre Racine graduated from Concordia University and has taught clay sculpting, casting techniques and stone sculpture at various artists’ centres. He occasionally uses stone, wood, wax and paper pulp, but favours working in bronze to create richly textured, hybrid figures that, while inspired by pre-Columbian art, possess a unique symbolism. Through his artwork, the artist has invented a world filled with whimsical, even magical creatures.
