Jeff Ladouceur was born in Nanaimo, BC (Canada) in 1975 He has since divided much of his time Between New York, Montreal and Vancouver where he currently resides.
Ladouceur is well known and highly regarded for his drawings, paintings and sculptures which represent a recurring & evolving cast of cartoonish forms and wispy characters. These spirits, mascots & living landscapes often weave into one another. When not arising, sauntering, blooming or igniting in pure joy, they simply fold, fumble, deflate, wince, flop, tangle, fluster, sag (& snooze). All the while falling forward through a transforming realm of ether, ocean, cloud, wooden-planks & trickling waterways.
Ladouceur's anthropomorphic drifters are often decked out with a saggy sad-sack rubbery mug or a pure bright eyed dorky smile, or sometimes both. These totemic familiars are our etheric representatives and psychic portrait stand-ins laid to paper, canvas, wood and more.
