MIXED MEDIA PAINTINGS
These paintings, integrating image transfer, collage and paint,explore the boundaries between reality and dreams.
Inspired by the beautiful bugs that ony appear a couple of weeks in the summer to mate, This series started with the 'Firefly in the city' project, created for 'Les fenêtre qui parlent, Montréal, 2019, where residents offer their windows as displays for artists. The streets of different neighborhoods transform every september in Monteal, its very magical! I was very happy to be part of this experience. I wanted to bring nature to the city, by painting a huge forest, with fireflies painted with fluorescent light. In the evening, after the sun set, passers would lit the artwork with a flash light, and thus it would look like a real forest with fireflies! It was very hard to photograph.
Acrylic paintings of animals, with a somber feel.
This is a series of animals, created with coloured pencils and soft pastels, depicting animals surrounded by 'neon auras', eluding to their constant fragility they are faced with our world. You can buy a print here (25% is donated to SAFE animal refuge)
After a trip to the Aquarium in Toronto in 2019, I was mesmerized by seeing real jelly-fish for the first time, alive, in the water. I liked how eerie and alien-like they looked. Hence the Departure series was born. All of the jellyfish belong to their surroundings, the ony difference is that they are floating in the sky.
