“Extremely Rare Blue Flamingos by Night” is a departure from Rene Lalonde’s usually work, as he depicts Flamingos instead of shapes, objects, flowers, and houses. Even the title is an indication to this rarity, and it makes you wonder if the Flamingos are Rene Lalonde’s alter ego coming out of his usual style of work.
“Extremely Rare Blue Flamingos” is a 40 x 30 – inch acrylic on canvas.
Lalonde was born in Montreal in 1950, the oldest of four children in a working-class family. He was drawn to the arts at an early age and bought his first serious set of paints, brushes, and canvases at age 12. He proved to be graced with a rich imagination, which flourished during his time spent at boarding school, a confining though ultimately inspiring environment. As the tumultuous 1960s unfolded, Lalonde was swept up in the excitement of rock and roll, the Beatles, and what was to become known as the “British Invasion.” The artistic movements spawned in the psychedelic revolution particularly drew Lalonde, leading him to the works of surrealists like Magritte, Dali and Ernst as he explored his own creative drive.
