Mes chers enfants l'impureté, c'est... comment dirais-je...une chose... inexplicable.

From 1977, Normand Hudon finally lives fully from his painting. In his work, his background as a caricaturist, illustrator and actor comes to light in caustic and colorful works. His sagacious spirit and the well-honed sense of repartee that he showed from a young age mark the themes he brilliantly exploits. From monks to magistrates, through scenes of daily life and children's games, Hudon's works appeal to the carefree memories of youth.

His favorite subjects? Daily life, working-class neighborhoods and Quebec at the advent of the Quiet Revolution. The impression that emerges from his paintings is that of a childish and mischievous gaiety. Thus, Normand Hudon offers us a personal and creative vision of his childhood "drowned in holy water".
