I’m John LeBlanc
"Several years ago I was introduced to John Leblanc and his work. I was attracted to a style unique to John. In his paintings John asks you to leave your prejudice and learned perceptions behind, accept the uniqueness and enjoy! "
"My husband Glen and I started collecting John’s work in the 1990’s. We were drawn at first to his meticulous composition, and lush colors, but over time, we were further drawn in by the movement and adventuresome patterning he includes in every piece he creates".
"With John’s work, I’m inspired to design entire rooms around his wonderful, brilliantly colorful, lively pieces".
"The University of Maine Museum of Art is delighted that artist John LeBlanc is represented in the permanent collection. LeBlanc's acrylic on panel painting "Upward Bound, Monhegan Island" is teeming with energetic and varied brushstrokes. The artist captures the character and features of these youthful men with his skillful use of color that reflects his unique form of expressive realism".
