Artist

Clemence Dubois
St-Michel , Canada

Initially everything is abstract, gestural and intuitive for Clemence Dubois. A shape becomes a bird, a fish, a flower or a character. Her paintings capture colors and shapes that words have yet to say. She says, “I want people to look at my paintings and observe my feelings for beauty in all forms and my joy of living that permeates my art.” Clemence likes to read, watch television, swim and travel. She also leads workshops in creative and figurative painting.

Comments About This Piece

This painting is part of my new series featuring female characters. There is a magic that occurs before my eyes when I trace a few spontaneous and gestural lines and discover all the characters and their worlds. After all these years, I have to recognize that my life is that of an artist. I can talk about the lives of women through my own experience as a woman and as an artist. I paint female characters in all sorts of environments, with different expressions each time. I talk about women, girls, mothers, in order to question identity and beauty ideals. Each female character has her own unique look, her own life, her own identity. I talk about the way woman are perceived and their perception of themselves.

My characters can have hairstyles and clothes that are surreal or contemporary. This painting brought me to another pictorial universe, where the colors are more intense and they blend into one another. The female character is from another time and culture and is in a stylized environment surrounded by birds that represent freedom and liberty. The canvas is painted in oil using joyful and harmonious colors. Light black outlines highlight the elements and add texture and shape to the colors.

This piece is made of oil paint, acrylic paint and modeling paste on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang.

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.

One-of-a-kind

A one-of-a-kind artwork is a unique piece handmade by the artist. There is only one in existence. The work may be part of a series, however, the piece itself is unlike any other. This piece is available exclusively at UGallery.
