Formerly “Arts M.Perron“. This page will be changing over the weeks to come. 

In the process of rebranding under MPerron Creations. Please stay tuned. I have a working page under https://mariomjperron.wixsite.com

Dedicated to creativity. I share and talk about the works I’ve made with my hands & my imagination.

It starts with a focus on my painting & sculpture; there is poetry from my past & present; photography explorations; and now, there are creations from my dream to have a decor gallery called “Found – The Repurposed Design Company”.

With Creativity, the possibilities are endless! For now I will start with my artist Bio & Statement. Feel free to ask questions or offer feedback. I very much look forward to hearing from you!

Artist’s Bio

Mario Perron has been involved in the Montreal artistic community for over two decades.

The artist explores a variety of different media, such as painting, drawing, collage, and sculpture, producing an aesthetic narration of moods akin to a folkloric tradition. Executed in a naïve and unpredictable manner, the straightforward vocabulary employed by M. Perron translates itself into a singular, but the eclectic body of work.

He borrows imagery and sentiment from a history of “isms”, but interprets them with his own evocative language. His battle with a need to constantly explore new ideas and means of expressing them is demonstrated in the progression of short series he produces.

Primarily self-taught, he has had several mentors in and out of schools. He is a lifelong student of art and is always observing, studying, and devouring art. His sketchbooks are always with him to be filled with what inspires him.

Artist’s Statement

I think artists are like scientists.

Just like a scientist, we begin with a question, something we don’t know.

We go into our studio and research that question.

We bring with us a chaos of ideas and influences, combined with a basket of materials and skills. Art focuses them all into a singular result.

The first perpetual question is where does an artist’s inspiration come from. The only answer I can give is… everywhere. Every time I use my senses, I am inspired to use those sensations and transform them with infinite recombinations. Everything I see eventually finds a voice in something I make.

Making art demands a faith beyond each particular project. We can’t know how the cultural DNA we are preserving and recombining might be useful in the future.

The second perpetual question is some version of “What do you do?” Telling people I’m an artist gets a range of responses but the most common are some polite form of “That’s interesting.” So I tell people the following: “I’m interested in what’s happening to our minds in this age of information overload. Are we connecting or disconnecting? Are we losing the opportunity to enjoy the small and quiet pleasures of living?

This leads to a fun conversation about how I see my work, my process and how we all sometimes stop to smell the roses. Art gives us a focus to enjoy such moments.

Making art is a refuge from the heavy moments of life. It allows me a place to focus and meditate. Sharing it is offering others moments of distraction and possibly refocus.

The final perpetual question is “What does it mean?” While it is always more fun for me to hear what others get from my work, I have come to greatly enjoy the connections I make with people when I let them know what I feel it means. My art means many things, and for me, it means joy, love, accomplishment, challenge, and sanctuary. I vacation freely and often in my works and invite others to join me and/or visit on their own terms. I am always willing to share the experience.

In my Pinterest pages, you can take a look at & follow what moves the artist in me.

      1. My gratitude to you for giving valuable comments.

        The artists are the creams of any society who analyse anything and everything taking into account the natural settings, inner recesses of our mind, add a dose of spirituality to make it magnetic along with past experiences of our seers and artists of yore.

        Anybody who is creative in his/her way of transaction is an artist. I am of the opinion that everybody is artist but we have to draw out this talents from our inner self. 🙏🙏🙏
        🙂

      2. Dear Harbans and Mario,

        Art can indeed make our lives more fulfilling and holistic, perhaps even more so now that the viral pandemic is all around us.

        Speaking of the sonic art of music, as we maintain spatial distancing and stay home to avoid contracting and spreading the coronavirus, please kindly allow me the pleasure to entertain you with a bespoke poem and music recently published in the multimedia post entitled 🎼🎹—THE—🎹—LAST—🎹—RAG—🎹🎵🎶, where the featured composition for solo piano can be enjoyed and studied in multiple formats available to you as the audio playbacks, the video captures of score with music, and the gallery of printable score sheets.

        The post is available for you to enjoy at http://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2020/04/12/the-last-rag/

        Since music can be an essential part of the process of sustainability, wellbeing, healing and even social change and spiritual awakening, may my music and poem in the said post bring you and your family some creative “distractions” or “diversions” amidst the disruptions and woes engendered by the pandemic.

        I look forward to receiving your feedback at the post there.

      3. The art has special relevance for us, a life bereft of art is barren and listless. We feel as though we are missing something special.

        Time though is hard due to Covid-19 pandemic but those who draw out something from within will never feel lonely in any situation and condition. Covid or no Covid, they will feel determined and jovial.

        Certainly your write-up is wonderful. Regards.
