VISION STATEMENT of Photographic Artist Marc Gagnon

Inspiration leading to Gagnon’s Artistic Development-

Marc Gagnon attributes much of his development of his artistic skills through the influence of great artists Oscar Claude Monet (1840-1926 from France), Leonard da Vinci (1452-1519 from Italy), Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijin (1606-1669 from the Netherlands), Pierre Auguste Renoir (1841-1919 from France), Hilaire Germain Edgar Degas (1834-1917 from France), John Singer Sargent (1856-1925 from Italy) and Guy Harvey (Contemporary from Florida). Gagnon was inspired by Monet’s use of water in his artwork; the diversity of subjects and depth of meanings in the artwork of da Vinci; the spiritual meanings conveyed in Rembrandt’s work; Renoir’s emphasis of social behavior of humanity; inspired by Degas’ images of movement and grace of people; the mastery of Singer’s work of the fashionable society; and the environmental and wildlife scenes depicted in Guy Harvey’s work.

Inspiration leading to Gagnon’s development in instilling Social Change-

Marc Gagnon attributes his need to instill social change first in a speech given at the University of Massachusetts by Dr. William Cosby, Ed.D. This speech was the catalyst that lead Gagnon to research the great men of the Civil Rights Era that changed the norms of America resulting in the country to live to its philosophy of the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution. Gagnon has been deeply affected by the philosophies as well as the convictions of such men as Dr. Martin Luther King, President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, and President Lyndon Baines Johnson. Furthermore, Gagnon has been influenced by the humanitarian pursuits of President Jimmy Carter.

Globally, Gagnon has also been influenced by the brave conviction of instilling social change by Mahatma Gandhi of India, as well as President Nelson Mandela of South Africa.

Immediate Vision of Gagnon-

Marc Gagnon has currently 3 pieces of artwork accessioned into the King Center, Kennedy Space Center, and the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library. Gagnon plans on creating a collage incorporating all pieces of art as well as the documentation letters, and will be sent to the National Civil Rights Museum in Tennessee. Additionally, Gagnon is envisioning the creation of a series of artwork depicting the cultures of the world. At some later point in time, he plans of creating a piece that encompasses people of different cultures with the American Flag in front of a modern sculpture symbolizing the world. This piece will serve to represent America’s melting pot.

Marc Gagnon has begun working with Artists Against Racism out of Toronto, Canada. These photo projects will bring together people of the music industry in a stand against racism. Additionally, Gagnon is looking to work with Artists for Peace Association in Berlin, Germany. Gagnon is also looking to accessioned additional pieces of artwork in such museums as The Gandhi Museum in India, The Gandhi Foundation in Great Britain, the Peace Museum in Wolfsegg, Austria, and the Human Rights Museum in Berlin, Germany. Gagnon is also looking to gain a private collection from Adolfo Perez Esquivel (Nobel Peace Laureate) in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Long term Vision of Gagnon-

Marc Gagnon’s long term goal is to create an International Multi-Ethnic Cultural Center, not only representing his own work but also artwork of many artists of varied cultures from all over the world. Gagnon believes that Art will influence the Hearts of many cultures to come together. His vision is to build this Center in the City of St. Augustine, Florida, America’s oldest city. Gagnon will be looking to involve many industrial leaders, cultural leaders, educational leaders, and people in the artistic community on the Board of Trustees of this future cultural center. The list of these people is quite impressive. Gagnon believes this is important to deliver these ideals.
