Joan Dumouchel

Fleeting Impressions

Great Encounter

Painter of moments of introspection, Joan Dumouchel probes the nuances of the human psyche in a contemporary body of work that leaves room for imagination. Her realistic faces inhabit dreamlike universes that are conducive to escape. Portrait of an intuitive artist.

Joan Dumouchel has always dreamed of becoming an artist. As far as she can remember, the 63 years old artist has always loved to draw. While she attended art classes at UQAM, abstraction was the favoured style. However, portrait has long exercised its fascination on her. “My favorite classes were on live model. Charcoal in hand, I drew incessantly.” After having taught visual arts for a few years, she is approached by the art supplies retailer Omer DeSerres to hold training workshops for art teachers. This connection leads to another with the Liquitex acrylic paint company who sends her to England, accompanied by a select group of international artist, with the mission of testing their material. The experience proved to be an unforgettable one, on a cultural as well as an artistic basis. Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte.
