Collection: Christine Lenoir

Christine Lenoir has been an artist for 60 years. She uses various materials: ink, graphite, watercolor, pastels, mixed materials, and acrylic. She also works with clay and creates from found objects. Her gifted mother was her first visual arts teacher. She recently obtained her Certificate in Fundamental Arts at the Ottawa School of Art. In 1999, she lost her vision; the retinas of both her eyes were detached. Dr. Britton saved her sight, and since then her creative passion has intensified. Her painting is realistic, impressionistic, and abstract in style. As an artist, she shares her message about the state of women in our society and her concern for the deforestation of our planet.

"Je crée comme l’araignée qui tisse sa toile/Ma toile. Entre l’espoir et la mort on m’a toujours détestée, moi, l’araignée qui refuse de mourir. J’utilise le couteau, pour le courage, ensuite, le pinceau comme le fil que je tire pour extraire de la masse de couleur, du saut de peur et de rage, ce que voudrais que le spectateur puisse voir; la femme qui parle, chante, pleure qui prédit le danger et que personne écoute. Je peins parce que je suis. J’ai créé toute ma vie. Aujourd’hui je marche encore dans les rues perdues de ma vie au noir, en danger, je cherche refuge, j’ai mon couteau mais je peins dans la peur. Le refuge se trouve dans mon grand vide en moi, et lorsqu’ une toile est « faite », elle devient comme un amoureux, c’est la fête de victoire. Je n’ai plus peur, je suis forte!"
