Marcel Mussely

Studio Visit

A nice summer day in Longueuil, a quiet street where houses are surrounded by gardens and shaded by trees: we breathe easily here and experience a feeling of wellbeing, far away from the city yet so near.

This is the environment in which Marcel Mussely has chosen to establish residence, in 1973, selecting a home oriented towards the northern light. Essential to his work, the light floods his studio, which was renovated and enlarged a few years back to enable him to paint oversized canvases. For, Marcel Mussely is a painter in his heart and soul and has always been, irregardless of the fact that he worked in advertising for more than 25 years following studies in Commercial Illustration at the Famous Artist School of Westport, Connecticut.

LO

Use of the Golden Ratio

Art and the Sea

LO was born in France in 1964. He spent his childhood in Gorcy, a quaint Lorraine village near Longwy. As a child he dreamed of becoming a cartoonist. He obtains his bachelor’s degree in micromechanics and then leaves for the Côte d’Azur where he works seasonally as camp counsellor. His childhood dream remains with him, although surf, wind and sea have temporarily dampened his interest. He finally enrols with the School of Fine Arts in Toulon, France, but only upon completion of his first fresco, painted in Côte d’Azur in 1989, does he seriously consider pursuing a professional artistic career as a painter.

Gisèle Rivard

Light ad infinitum

Delight in Discovery

Gisèle Rivard has long been aware that all things are broader in scope than solely perceived through the senses. Fascinated with the role light plays in our living systems, she goes as far as analyzing the optical spectrum to better understand its principles, much as a scientist tries to comprehend the manifestations of various environmental phenomena to better integrate their laws. “The source of light lies at a great distance, it comes from the stars and has a far-reaching influence on our lives. Light’s energy is essential to us, for without it, we simply can’t distinguish anything. It’s extraordinarily interesting! ”
