Joanne Gauthier - October 7 - 19, 2017
1203 Broad Street, Victoria, B.C.
October 7, 2017 until October 19, 2017
Joanne Gauthier’s much-anticipated solo exhibition of new paintings opens Saturday October 7. Joanne was introduced to the life of an artist from an early age and worked diligently pursue that passion at the University of Quebec. Her dedication and endless creativity have sustained her throughout her career and are what drives her to continually push her own boundaries. In this recent series of paintings lush floral imagery is principally inspired by colour. “I make small sketches that I reproduce to scale. When I apply color, I want to create color contrasts often compared to the central color of the composition. Creating interest around this color and then making it vibrate to the maximum until an almost surreal atmosphere emerges.”
