A Colorful Life: Claire Desjardins

If an artist were to translate your life into paint, what would it look like?  Would the palette be bright and cheery or grey and solemn?  Montreal artist Claire Desjardins’ work has the feeling of a warm and colorful life.

Many of Desjardins’ pieces are abstract impressions of moments or memories, the colors, forms, and textures telling us their visual stories, yet leaving us to form our own conclusions.

In the layers of paint, can feel the scene– the sights, the sounds, the scents.  Paintings filled with the fleeting moods of everyday life, when taken altogether, create an extraordinary existence indeed.

      Most definitely! I’m always drawn to color, but even more so in the winter months. Glad you enjoyed Claire’s work, Kelly!

    I like her work. Definitely conveys feelings, more of the cheerful kind.
