France Jodoin "Shores Are Empires"

Jodoin at Collins Lefebvre Stoneberger

France Jodoin’s abstract landscapes capture the wild, emotive sea off Newfoundland’s rugged shoreline. In “A Story of Race, Passion and Glory”, two ships course through apocalyptic sweeps of paint recreating sea and surf. A painterly alchemy – of aquamarine blues, seaweed ochres – defines a shoreline set against a crimson sky

Like the sea, Jodoin’s art is wet and fluid. Stimulated by imagery, music and poetry, the Quebec artist paints intuitively, often starting with colour. In “Earthliness under clawed toes” a black-winged, fish hawk lands as waves crash against black rocks. Dramatic in the use of light and dark, the osprey – like the North Atlantic – is menacing yet mythic. Transporting the viewer to her cottage in rugged Torres Cove, the sea’s destructive, yet creative, force is captured.

In “Shores are Empires”, a monumental oil on canvas influenced by Turner, saltlike washes define a sea of conquest. Painted in gun-metal green, it recalls Toynbee’s comment: “Civilization is a movement and not a condition, a voyage and not a harbour.” The result is an ephemeral seascape, calm but powerful. The vernissage will be held on Thursday, October 16 – the artist will be present – at Collins Lefebvre Stoneberger, 4928 Sherbrooke (514.481.2111).

The art of dark and light

Chiaroscuro – the balance of light and dark – sets the composition in both photography and painting. But the images of Gabor Szilasi and France Jodoin appeal, as light and dark continue to challenge and define the other. Balanced at times delicately, at others boldly, light and dark create atmosphere and beauty, forging our interest and imagination.
