Therrien’s work has clear links to the generation of Pop and Conceptual artists that preceded him, yet embodies a distinctive mix of his affinities for folk culture, cartoons, and American design. Working in two and three dimensions and with great attention to the effects of scale, he transforms elements from the culture of everyday life into artworks that evoke classical archetypes. His art invites psychological interpretation, given its evident concern with childhood narratives, while remaining firmly objective due to its uncanny proximity to the real and its relationship with the minimal.
