Fine art photographer Patrick Lajoie was born in 1969 in London, Ontario and studied fine art at Ontario College of Art in Toronto. Known for his image transfer works on wood panel Patrick’s images are infused with a warmth in both hue and texture, created by the golden cast of the wood as well as the delicate wood grain apparent beneath paler areas of pigment. Through his work Patrick seeks to explore themes of colour and light as well as the emotions sparked by nostalgia and remembrance.
His works have been exhibited nationally and internationally and are held in private and corporate collections across Canada, the United States and Europe. Patrick has also been the recipient of several awards, including Best Photography and Best Photo Based Work from art fairs in Toronto and Ottawa, respectively.
