Vincent Routhier was born from a mathematician father and a documentalist mother, in Lyon, France. He lives and works in Montreal, where he currently finishes a master in Fine Arts, intermedia concentration at Concordia University. Vincent Routhier, a conceptual artist whose multidisciplinary practice finds its bases in philosophical thinking and a science-based approach, examines the possible complementarity of art and science. Considering translation a creative act, the artist develops systems that find expression in large geometric drawings, mathematical formulas, and contextual performances. Taking mathematical concepts—the Pythagorean theorem, duplication of the square, or homothety (geometric transformation)—as his starting point, this artist creates drawings using graphite powder.
