Jacques Payette was born in Montreal in 1951 and began exhibiting his works in galleries across Canada in the early 1970s. A self-taught artist, he has worked primarily in the technically challenging and unique medium of encaustic, a medium in which he is now recognized as a master. With strong figurative, still life, and landscape works, Jacques Payette always manages to express the duality of man’s nature, reconciling and contrasting the physical with the metaphysical. In 2011, the National Museum of Fine Arts of Quebec hosted a retrospective of his work. The theme of his work revolves around memory and places.
