Où le re­gard se perd by pain­ter Éloïse Brodeur

While ex­plor­ing the theme of the cow, Éloïse Brodeur’s work arouses de­bate. She cer­tainly calls into ques­tion the way our so­ci­ety func­tions, our meth­ods of con­sump­tion, abun­dance, ex­cess, over­pro­duc­tion and as well as the his­tor­i­cal do­mes­ti­ca­tion of the an­i­mal. She also re­spects her sub­ject’s peace­ful­ness and equa­nim­ity by us­ing a pal­ette based in con­trast. The empti­ness or the pure space that sur­rounds the sub­ject, brings bal­ance and calls for seren­ity and in­tro­spec­tion in the viewer.
