Fascinated from an early age by various forms of art, Frederic Metthé eventually becomes known in the field of music. Thus, he became one of the most original composers of our time. He wrote his most important works from the late 1970s and throughout the following decade, including his Sonate en sol mineur, Préludes atonals, Sonate pour Gabrielle en quatre Cahiers, intitulés Gabrielle, Implexe, Schiedam et Pluriel. So far, he has composed hundreds of works for piano and orchestra. His multidisciplinary nature results in the publication of several books of poetry, including the famous title Souche de Bronze in 1976. In late 2003, his passion for the visual arts gains the upper hand causing him somewhat to deter from music and writing. This marks the beginning of a new era.
The pictorial work of Frederick Metthé reflects the multidisciplinary nature of the artist in the sense that the viewer can discern musical tones, a script to decode, and of course bright colors that bring a certain glow to the paintings. He works mostly in improvisation because every action dictates the next and so on. "I've covered several events in Quebec, including L'Espace contemporain de Québec, the Maison de la Culture de L'Ancienne-Lorette... and I have not seen anything like it. You actually have a signature that denotes a recognizable artistic maturity in your work!" declared Helen Caroline Fournier, Creative Director at Total Multimedia Art.
