Marie-Eve Cournoyer is a very intuitive and creative painter.
Born in 1977 in Quebec, Canada, she discovered at a very young age her intense love for art and paint; a love that continues to mature. She has completed a ceramic course at Centre deCéramique in Montreal and finished her Masters in Visual Arts at the University of Quebec inMontreal. Participating in many exhibitions and symposia since 1997, her art can be found in many galleries across Canada.
A very passionate and prolific artist, her paintings are a mix of the imaginary, the figurative and the contemporary, all expressed colorfully and with a touch of simplicity.
Her goal is to continually push her limits, in order to obtain results that even she could not have expected or imagined. Exploring different media, she seeks original and unique forms with different colors and textures, guaranteeing that each creation will be as unique and original as their creator.
Like other artists who were trained in graphic design, Denis Chiasson Desson attaches great importance to composition, which frames all creation. He begins by making a series of sketches. Once a drawing is chosen, Denis Chiasson (Desson) transposes the outline to the canvas, which is progressively defined with the application of colour. What emerges is a painting whose subject is enhanced by strong, angular and intense lines. This meticulous process adds a touch of perfectionism to his works that is seldom seen elsewhere. His strong colours reveal an uncommon sensitivity, bringing forth touching images inhabited by a unique personal style.
His female nudes are particularly striking and are an exception to the rule in today’s galleries, where such subject matter is becoming less sought-after. He treats the female form with modesty and respect, eliminating all eroticism. A great intensity emanates from the compositions where the forms are gathered in tight poses. Looking down, reserved and, most recently, with their eyes closed, his female subjects are striking in their interiority and the contemplation they evoke. This visual aesthetic and the introspection with which he infuses his subjects make Denis Chiasson an exceptional artist: one to be discovered.
