The Beaulne Mu­seum presents

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Coat­i­cook

The Beaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is proud to present the ex­hi­bi­tion « Sourires com­pos­ites” from the mo­saic artist Is­abelle Marissal from the 5th of Oc­to­ber to the 16th of Novem­ber 2014. The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 5th of Oc­to­ber at 2 p.m.The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

The ex­hibit « Sourires com­pos­ites » is very

lively and part of an ac­tual and cur­rent world­wide prac­tice within the con­tem­po­rary mo­saic artists. And, within weeks of the 10th edi­tion of In­ter­na­tional Mo­saic Gath­er­ings in Chartres, France, the mo­ment is more than ap­pro­pri­ate.

The artist ex­plores the di­men­sions of a com­pos­ite mix be­tween ab­stract and in­tan­gi­ble ma­te­rial from emo­tions, along with good con­crete tiles Of course, this ex­plo­ration comes from her joy to cre­ate as well as by the vis­i­tor’s ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the fi­nal work. For the artist, a smile con­veys a pow­er­ful es­thetic which she in­ter­pel­lates with the medium of mo­saic. The sim­ple idea to make the at­tempt to de­cline some of the sub­tleties that a smile can con­ceal with the help of frag­ments of ma­te­ri­als, from shapes and dis­parate col­ors, is of great de­light to the artist.

Tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als in­clude ce­ramic, porce­lain, glass, as well as ma­te­ri­als or ob­jects from dif­fer­ent places di­verted from their usual vo­ca­tion (re­cy­cled ma­te­ri­als and ob­jects) are used. Mo­saic artist, Is­abelle Marissal has been prac­tic­ing this pas­sion for more than ten years now. Mostly self-taught, it is im­por­tant to her to trans­fer a sig­nif­i­cant por­tion of her hu­man ex­pe­ri­ences, pro­fes­sional, spir­i­tual, in­tel­lec­tual as well as hu­man­ist in her artis­tic ap­proach.
