louie rochon

Louie Rochon 'was' best known for his prolific sensual macro photography work 'of all things flowers,' until he discovered his true passion for acrylic painting at age 63. "I've been searching my entire life and almost given up, but finally found the true love of my life - painting," he has said. "I've never been able to find a medium that can keep up with the depth and rapid cycling of my emotions - Bipolar disorder. Rochon adds, "I paint on the floor, on long sheets of white canvas, on my hands and knees, wet and fast and honest, for days at a time - and it ends as sudden as it starts, always taking me by surprise. It's a deeply emotional 'trance-dance' of sorts and when the music stops, I'm completely spent - I am within my painting. In essence, it 'is' a love affair." His work ranges from abstract to expressionist to, well, his own unique style - bold vivid color and loose flowing line work that conveys a sense of joy, hope and deep appreciation for nature.
