Beaulne museum presents new exhibit: “Histoires du temps present” by artist Gisèle Normandin
The Beaulne Museum will be presenting a new exhibit, “Histoires du temps present” by artist Gisèle Normandin, from Oct. 14 to Nov. 17,
A vernissage open to the public will be held on Sunday, Oct.14 at 2 p.m.
Gisèle Normandin holds a bachelor's degree in Cultural Research, a BA in Art History, a BA in Fine Arts and a Certificate in Printing Arts, all from the University de Quebec à Montreal. In addition to her many exhibitions in cultural centers, municipal galleries, and artists' centers, she was a member of the eligibility committee for the group Visual Arts-artists of Quebec (RAAV), served on the Board of Directors of the Council from 1994 onwards, and was president until it was dissolved in June 1997.
Human presence is always privileged in Normandin’s world, and she takes a critical look at the human condition; observing environmental failure, wandering and drifting individuals, the quest for spirituality, incursions into the memory of behaviors, references to scripture and human history through the strata and urgency of time.
Normandin’s work uses different processes and techniques: painting, collage, graphics and various materials. In addition, she works on raw wood supports, the highlights and textures of which she exploits. She also uses hot glue to create other kinds of highlights, structures, characters and writing that convey memory and history.
