Beaulne Mu­seum Presents

Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum of Coat­i­cook is de­lighted to present the ex­hi­bi­tion “Fuego” by the artist Lu­cie Levasseur from the 13th of Septem­ber to the 8th of Novem­ber 2015. The grand open­ing will be held on Sun­day the 13th of Septem­ber at 2pm. The public and the press are cor­dially in­vited.

Lu­cie Levasseur was born in Arthabaska in « Bois-Francs” but has been liv­ing and work­ing in the city of Sher­brooke for more than twenty years. Af­ter ob­tain­ing a Master's de­gree in Ed­u­ca­tion, she worked as a guid­ance coun­selor and con­sul­tant in train­ing while en­gag­ing her­self pas­sion­ately into her paint­ing. Self-taught, she at­tended sev­eral work­shops and was inspired by many pain­ters. She also has a cer­tifi­cate in vis­ual arts from the Univer­sity of Sher­brooke. Since her ado­les­cence, “ab­strac­tion” has al­ways fas­ci­nated her. She is in­ter­ested specif­i­cally in the ini­tial time where there is empti­ness, and then space takes shape. This mo­ment of ten­sion be­tween chance and re­flec­tion con­sti­tutes the cen­tral point of her re­search which oddly enough, comes from both the Amer­i­can way of paint­ing as well as ori­en­tal cal­lig­ra­phy. Since 2012, she has been work­ing at the “Cen­tre d’Arts Or­ford” where the energy is com­ple­men­tary to hers.

cre­ations of Lu­cie Levasseur have a mix of rig­or­ous forms as well as a sen­sual feel­ing. The ma­jor­ity of her work is very colour­ful and vivid just like the artist. The tech­niques used are di­verse, some­times they are “col­lages” oth­ers are tex­tured. She also in­cor­po­rates drip­pings and mixed medi­ums. She prefers large for­mats which give her room to ex­plore. The trans­parency and light within her ges­ture un­ques­tion­ably re­veal the in­flu­ence of “Zao Wou Ki”, one of the best mod­ern pain­ters from the Western World. The color is the star of her cre­ations.

is homage to life, to energy, the joy of liv­ing with en­thu­si­asm. The artist wishes to make you smile and ques­tion your­self through her art. And if they touch or move you, her mis­sion will be ac­com­plished. You may see more than fif­teen of her cre­ations within this ex­hibit.
