Bud­dhism in­spires art at Beaulne

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS -

The Beaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is pleased to present the ex­hi­bi­tion «

Im­per­ma­nence et Il­lu­sion », from the artist pho­tog­ra­pher Nathalie Am­ple­man from the 9th of June to the 4th of Au­gust 2013. The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 9th of June at 2pm. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

Ac­com­plished pho­tog­ra­pher, Nathalie Am­ple­man has been ex­plor­ing for many years, nu­mer­ous tech­niques of stamp­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy which few have prac­ticed, such as gum bichro­mate and cyan­otype. Through her own vis­ual uni­verse she pro­poses a re­flec­tion on im­per­ma­nent and il­lu­sion as sub­ject mat­ter. Per­haps, com­pa­ra­ble to an awaken dream, her work is about im­pres­sion where the land­scape, wildlife and man tint our per­cep­tion of re­al­ity. The con­cept is a re­flec­tion, and the the­ory a quiet tainted cloud... It is about an au­ton­o­mous and sym­bolic ex­is­tence where pic­to­rial mat­ter, within its print­ing tech­niques, brings us back to the mean­ing of the creative process.

Im­per­ma­nent is one of the es­sen­tial doc­trines or three marks of ex­is­tence in Bud­dhism. Ev­ery­thing that ex­ists is sub­ject to change, noth­ing is sta­ble. Ev­ery­thing around us is con­stantly chang­ing. Ev­ery­thing lives, grows and dies.

Nathalie Am­ple­man is orig­i­nally from Mon­treal and has been liv­ing in the Eastern Town­ships for seven years. Ex­pe­ri­enced pho­tog­ra­pher and artist, she ex­plores dif­fer­ent tech­niques of stamp­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy. She re­cently ac­quired a bur­sary from CALQ for her pro­ject “Resid­ual Im­pres­sion”. Up-and-com­ing artist, she ex­hibits pic­to­rial com­po­si­tions full of al­le­gories. Her work, which re­lates as much to im­pres­sion as to pho­tog­ra­phy, pro­duces a vis­ual re­sult which is sur­pris­ing.

In­spired by her per­sonal life and some­times by ref­er­ences to the His­tory of Art, her day to day scener­ies, char­ac­ters and an­i­mals, all tell a story.

A tale to be con­tin­ued!
