About My Art:
"Multi-talented artist Hubert Cance has an astounding range of work, from fanciful illustrations of knights and medieval machinery to mystical, beautifully crafted paintings. Born in Aurillac, France, Cance’s youthful imagination was stimulated by growing up in a house filled with books on local history, folk stories and classical culture. Following his military service, Cance worked as a freelance pattern designer for a variety of scale-modeling firms, a position that strengthened his technical skills. His concise illustrative work has been published in numerous books and periodicals from England to Japan. Cance’s attention to detail is a dominant force in his paintings that is rivaled only by his boundless imagination. His audience will revel in Cance’s imaginings, a world of elemental spirits, ancient forests, and epic battles. Cance is adept at capturing more delicate moments as well, such as in his landscapes of flowing pine trees or the still waters of Venice cloaked in moonlight. Hubert Cance lives and works in France."
"Hubert Cance is an artist with a draftsman's hand and eye. His work ranges from fantasy explorations of the worlds of mysticism and shamanism to highly formalized aviation drawings and mechanical representations. The most recognizable aspect of Cance's art is the way he applies the strict tenets of mechanical design to drawings of machines, warriors, and scenes that exist only in his amazing imagination. Cance is equally at home depicting realistically drawn soldiers and military paraphernalia as soft pine tree landscapes. With a unique mix of Asian style and Gaelic culture Cance creates windows that communicate another way of viewing the world and understanding nature. His "Felementale" drawing series is the artist's interpretation of the essential spirits of the earth in gentle, feminine forms. Hubert Cance was born in Aurillac, in the Auvergne Valley region of France. The area, with its medieval fortifications and castles, has left an indelible mark on the artist's vision."
"Hubert Cance: Creativita a tutto tondo.
Uno degli artisti piu interessanti con cui Camaver Kunsthaus vanta una collaborazione e sicuramente Hubert Cance.
Artista Francese di Aurillac cittadina nell'Auvergne una regione tra le piu belle e magiche del suo paese, una magia che sembra aver influenzato l'arte di Cance.
Artista dal talento poliedrico, votato all'illustrazione fantastica e alle suggestioni medievali, come anche per il mondo di frequentare, facendosi notare per la sua grande abilita tecnica. il realismo attento di questo artista rende le opere fantastiche quasi vive, traspiranti misticismo. Si rimane sorpresi ed incantati di fronte all figure che nascono et danzano in queste creazioni.
Hubert Ca,ce ha participatoin Ialia con Camaver Kunsthaus Intrenational a una mostra della serie Antichi Palazzi presentando alcuni pezzi della serie "Eyes": occhi di animali selvatici presentati in maniera sobria ed ermetica. Lavori molto intensi in grado di evocare una forza e un simbolismo molto coinvolgente e penetrante. L'estetica di questo artista e sicuramente raffinata e il vago astrattismo delle composizioni cosi essenziali non creano una barriera con la spettatore che riesce a fare proprie queste immagini con semplicita.
Nel corso del 2009 Cance ha avuto anche l'onore di aggiudicarsi diversi premi artistici come il Mick Bell author's prize 2009, il Premio Leonardo Da Vinci et il premio Martin Luther King, questi ultimi due vinti aggiudicati in Italia.
Ci auguriamo di rivedere presto Hubert Cance in Italia in una mostra targata Camaver.
