Hu­man com­plex­ity at Beaulne

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is proud to present the ex­hibit: « En­tre nous et les autres » by the artist Geneviève Dupon­tDaigneault, from the 15th of Septem­ber to the 3rd of Novem­ber 2013. The grand open- ing will be held on the 15th of Septem­ber at 2pm. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

The artist presents paint­ings de­pict­ing un­known ter­ri­to­ries where na­ture be­comes

ab­stract and floods im­ages with an ur­ban in­to­na­tion. Search­ing for a mean­ing in worn out and fre­quently vis­ited places, be­ing each other’s in­ter­preter, we are alone to­gether.

She is fas­ci­nated by di­verse re­la­tion­ships and in our in­abil­ity to grasp an­other per­son’s sub­tleties. She is in­spired by places which shel­ter us as much as by thoughts that in­hibit us. Her scener­ies are coded mes­sages which rep­re­sent the in­signia of hu­man com­plex­ity. She in­tro­duces soli­tary be­ings and in­hab­ited places which are close and linked to each other, but with a word­less dia­logue be­tween us and the oth­ers.

Her work is a mix of ab­stract paint­ing, pho­tog­ra­phy, re­touched pic­tures and screen print­ing. The im­ages are drawn from her own pho­tos which are mod­i­fied by com­puter and screen print­ing in acrylic right on the can­vas.

Geneviève Dupont-Daigneault was born in Sher­brooke in 1981. Af­ter her stud­ies in Mon­treal and Three Rivers, she came back to the Eastern Town­ships. She par­tic­i­pated in many group ex­hibits in Sher­brooke, Three Rivers, Mon­treal and Brus­sels. She has won many awards such as the bur­sary “Gilles Verville”, “Mérite Presse Pa­pier” as well as two prizes in the Art Con­test in­tended for teach­ers in charge of lessons and grad­u­ates in Arts at the “UQTR”, Univer­sity of Que­bec in Three Rivers.
