Pierre Tessier has served as president of both the Conseil de la sculpture du Québec and the Regroupement des artistes en arts visuels (RAAV). In 2000, he created the ESSARTS sculpture park, where numerous artists have exhibited open-air pieces. Tessier’s own work is largely based on integration into architecture and the environment; using wood, metal, stone, concrete and bronze, he focuses on highlighting textures as well as the movements brought to mind by different shapes.
