Joanne Gauthier - Listen With Your Eyes
10337 - 124 Street, Edmonton, Alberta.
October 27, 2018 until November 8, 2018
Join us at the opening of, Listen with your Eyes, the latest exhibition of oil paintings by Joanne Gauthier. The opening reception takes place Saturday, October 27, 2018 between 1 - 4 pm. Please note Joanne is unable to attend her opening in Edmonton. The exhibition continues until November 8, 2018. The recent work of Joanne Gauthier, of which 17 paintings are part of this exhibition, is intended as an invitation to reflect upon the original expression of a personal imagination strongly inspired by classical music from Beethoven, Mozart, and Henry Purcell. The lyrical display of bold, brilliant colours, of arabesques and of motifs arising from her personal imagination.
Joanne prepares each canvas by coating it with an acrylic paste, on which she carefully engraves each drawing. Diluted with solvents, never white, the artist uses large oil washes mixed directly on the canvas. The paste absorbs the colours, thus helping to create the desired effect of transparency and brilliance. Finally, the painting is coated in multiple layers of water-based and oil-based varnishes so that her reds and blues have a distinct glow. Many viewers of Joanne’s artwork compare it to the brilliant colours found in stained glass.
