Danièle Rochon, RCA, RAAV

The Painter’s Pride

Solo Exhibition

Saturday, May 22, 2021

 

Please join us in the gallery this spring for a new and energetic collection of paintings by celebrated Canadian artist Danièle Rochon.  She explores her relationship to elements of nature with the intent to discover and paint the beautiful and layered distinctions of our natural world.

 

My one and only subject is Nature, one with no horizon giving an “intimist” view sometimes in the midst of a very messy vegetation. I provoke strong contrasts, which at the end can be the confrontation of black and white. In order to reach this luminous intensity, I use the colour, the tool essential to my creation. Whether I work with a soft pastel or an oil pastel, acrylic or oil, gold, silver or bronze pigments, I use these mediums without restriction, in order to create this tension between the light and the shadow. My brush strokes will be nervous, refined, as I approach the light. As the eye fades away, the surface becomes darker and dense. So what is primordial, is that I know at first where the light will settle itself on the canvas. Therefore, the light that I isolate will be as a projector, illuminating the underwood, the source, or the marsh or the smallest little detail hidden within bushy vegetation. In the eye of the artist there are many light spectrums.  These vary with the memory of places seen and felt. Light has an infinite spectrum and my aim as a painter is to circumscribe it and throw it generously back on the canvas.

 

Daniele Rochon, RCA, is a Canadian artist; painter, pastelist and lithographer. Her works form part of major national and international collections.

Congratulations to Mary Pavey!

 

Mary’s painting entitled French Shawl just received $9,500 CDN at auction with a flurry of activity of 30 bids on this beautiful painting.

Jean Claude Roy Documentary
Tous Les Jours  – Trailer
By filmmaker Nicholas Mullins

 

Nicholas Mullins, a college student from Savannah, GA is currently studying in rural Pennsylvania. His childhood passion of telling stories about creators and creation led him to traveling to Newfoundland in the Summer of 2019 to create a documentary about Jean Claude Roy, an artist Nicholas has admired since he was a child.

 

The intimate short film centers around the daily routine of the reknowned French artist as he paints the coves and cliffs of the quiet, rocky island. Shot over the course of 10 days by a one-man crew, Tous Les Jours provides a quiet and inspiring escape from the day’s troubles.
