The collected work of Louise Laroche will be showcased at the Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre from March 24, 2017 to May 21, 2017.
Louise’s work is evocative with roots in the ancient culture of 16th century Quebec. She draws inspiration from nature and her surroundings. Louise is a graduate of Fine Art, Laval University and has spent the last 30 years searching for her own pathway of printmaking, guided by her passion for fragmentation.
“My current work consists of a series of aquarelle monoprints and collages. I feel an affinity towards ancient cultures and like my work to convey a sense of timelessness. In each series I develop different aspects of the same image. Up to four prints can be pulled from one plate. Each image is different because of the many layers of Aquarelle crayons which create unexpected colour and textural changes. Sometimes the print is kept as virgin, untouched. Other times the plate is printed over black ink stick drawings, giving it a new dimension.
I like the interaction, the tension between juxtaposed fragments. These form multiple spaces within each collage. I like to think my work stimulates contemplation and awareness,” stated Louise Laroche.
The public is invited to the Opening of the exhibit on April 2, 2017 from 2:00 to 5:00 PM.
