In­spired by hu­man life

Stanstead Journal - - LENNOXVILLE NEWS - Coat­i­cook

The Beaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion Coeur des toiles by the artist pain­ter Is­abelle Re­naud, till Septem­ber 16, 2012.

Is­abelle Re­naud works and lives her art in the Eastern Town­ships. A grad­u­ate in fine arts and com­puter graph­ics, she is cur­rently com­plet­ing a mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary BA at the Univer­sity of Sher­brooke in visual arts, ed­u­ca­tion, and mul­ti­me­dia. Is­abelle is a graphic de­signer for a num­ber of years, en­abling her to in­ject a touch of dig­i­tal tech­nol­ogy into her art, which is mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary in na­ture. Thus, her works are char­ac­ter­ized by the syn­ergy be­tween pho­tog­ra­phy, draw­ing, paint­ing, com­puter graph­ics, and oc­ca­sion­ally in­stal­la­tion.

The artist cen­ters her re­search on the move­ment, which is ren­dered as much by the sub­ject mat­ter as by the artis­tic ges­ture. Her cre­ative uni­verse is in­spired by hu­man me­chan­ics and ar­chi­tec­ture, en­abling her to ex­per­i­ment with the con­struc­tion, de­con­struc­tion, power, and fragility of the im­ages. The trans­for­ma­tion of the known mod­els and mul­ti­ple lev­els of per­cep­tion re­veal a plas­tic and po­etic sen­si­bil­ity emerg­ing from the work. The ex­pe­ri­ence of the im­ages al­tered in this way al­lows us to re­dis­cover se­quences of life tinged with a light sur­re­al­ism.

“Coeur des toiles” stems from the mo­ti­va­tion to paint, in the same space-time dream­like and tan­gi­ble as­pects of life. The sub­ject mat­ter is in­spired by the de­sign of hu­man life, the spir­i­tual anatomy of the heart, which is the body and engine of the essence of life.

The draw­ings and paint­ings that are shown de­rive their strength from the flow­ing lines on the can­vas. Where the col­ors blend to­gether, the visi­tor will dis­cover bright pig­ments that clash with neb­u­lous back­ground tex­tures. The aes­thetic qual­ity, the range of con­trasts, the sub­tle col­ors that emerge help to re­veal im­ages of an­other world, which the viewer can ques­tion at will. Please ac­cept this in­vi­ta­tion to get car­ried away af­ter ex­pe­ri­enc­ing the jour­ney where flesh and soul come to­gether in a lyri­cal set­ting.
