Inspired by a desire to express the beauty of the natural world, Thérèse Boisclair captures the atmospheric sensations of landscapes in alluring abstract works of art.
The artist enjoys combining the bold colours of acrylic painting with the fragility of tissue paper to achieve a myriad textures, unexpected patterns, and varied translucent effects.
Boisclair, who lives in Ottawa Canada, has acquired expertise in many different artistic mediums, including enamel on copper, pottery, stained glass, jewelry making and more — which have all contributed to her expansive visual vocabulary.
About her current focus on painting on tissue paper she explains, “The textures, bold colours, light and transparency continue to fascinate me.” Boisclair’s abstract landscapes have been seen in numerous exhibitions in Canada, Europe and the U.S. Her art work can be found in many private and public collections throughout the world.
Among the many accolades she has received include receiving “Best of Show” in an exhibition held at the Estense Castle in Ferrarra, Italy. She was also given awards during the 1st edition of the Naples Prize for Contemporary Art 2013 organized by the Galleria, in Monteoliveto, Nice.
