The Catch

Throwback post to the rich & simple naivety inherent in the artworks & caricatures of Canadian lawyer and artist Michel Sauve. In this post I’ve picked out just a few of his legal/justice themed pieces reflecting law & the very Canadian tradition of ice hockey.

Michel Sauve: A caricaturist or a naive painter, this is a question often answered. Michel Sauvé leaves no one indifferent. His art is sometimes incisive but never one feels the desire to hurt. Not wishing to harm anyone, Sauvé show us scenes of the daily legal and their actors. Lawyers and hockey players have plenty of room. On occasion, white ducks will be present, telling us that lawyers are not alone in the world. Nice nod to life.  Painting being a passion, he reveals another when he presents his characters with skates and hockey sticks. Since lawyers are often in delicate positions, he represents them as he feels them and gives them a court other than that of the courthouses in order to express themselves. C ‘ Is then skates with feet and sticks in the hand, they skate in order to defend well. Michel Sauvé has always loved to draw and have fun with color. Sauvé’s drawing is always the basis of his work and it is thus that he can easily integrate the architecture of the old quarters. Placed in old streets of Old Quebec, its lawyers stroll along the streets and sidewalks in the seasons and terraces they meet.

Sauvé is divided between his childhood and his maturity, it is probably the reason why he loves to take refuge in fantasy rather than wanting to take himself too seriously. He prefers to bring a smile to the lips of the collector rather than plunging it into deep reflection. Hockey has been and always is for him a passion. He likes to show us little players in alleys or schoolyards with equipment from another era. Dressed in the colors of the Nordiques or the Canadian, these characters remind us nostalgically of the rivalry that existed between these two Quebec teams.

Lawyers also have a very important place. Since lawyers are often in delicate positions, he represents them as he feels them and gives them a court other than that of the courthouses in order to express themselves. It is then that skates with feet and sticks in the hand, they skate in order to defend well. Michel Sauvé has always loved to draw and have fun with color. Sauvé’s drawing is always the basis of his work and thus he can integrate the architecture of the old quarters. Placed in old streets of Old Quebec, its lawyers stroll along the streets and sidewalks according to the seasons and the terraces they meet. More about Michel Sauve

Michel Sauvé has always loved drawing and having fun with color. Since his early childhood, drawing has allowed him to express himself and escape. A training in graphic art allowed him to acquire a basic balance in color. The composition, which with him was already a well-integrated concept, was reinforced by advanced techniques understood and assimilated. Sauvé’s drawing is still the basis of his work and this is how he can easily integrate the architecture of the old quarters into the adventures of his lawyers. Placed in old streets of Old Quebec or Old Montreal, his lawyers wander the streets and sidewalks according to the seasons and the terraces they encounter. It makes you wonder if they are really looking for courthouses!
