Nathalie Lapointe

When a Medieval Universe Merges with Contemporary Reverie

Artist Profile

The finest of paintings is always achieved via the solid and balanced organization of shapes and colours. Each of Nathalie Lapointe’s works rests on her knowledge of classic structural composition. Portraits. Shadows and lights. Images occupying one third of the canvas.

Mastering the theory of colours. Oil medium transparencies bonding with the grain of the canvas. Skillful work with painting knife. I could go on and on, so broad is her experience. Fascinated with atmospheres and tall buildings, here she is embarking on a new adventure, painting medieval castles precariously clinging to cliffs. Thank you Nathalie Lapointe!

The finest of paintings is always achieved…

Jean-Claude Poitras

Above All, I am a Creator

On Exhibit

“Fashion becomes out of date, style never does!”Coco Chanel

It’s by drawing and then moulding paper shapes on mannequins that the fashion designer has been able to elaborate his ideas, materialize his visions and realize his wishes. An initial outline always serving as starting point, which is also the case in painting and sculpture.

Chalk lines or ink threads on fine China or Japan paper. Silhouetted figures in an amalgam of lines in motion that capture the eye. In drawing as in sculpture, the fashion designer flouts rules and conventions to rather dive into an abundance of knowledge acquired through cultural sharing. He is constantly seeking to further extend the boundaries of creativity. Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte. Subscribe to our Website content to read more
