Question 10: Are there recurring themes or subjects in your art?

Transcription


You could say that the themes that are explored in my work are all different. Yet each of these themes is linked with the life force. I can give you examples. My most recent exhibition, Secrets de Varnes, still touring, really demonstrates the forces of resistance and perseverance that shaped the Acadian people. In Paradoxe, for instance, I’m referring to both the aggressive forces and the resilient forces in the human being. Apprendre puts the emphasis on letting go, so that life can make a new start. Une pierre pour toi, and I would also say, Fort comme la vie, these two pieces speak of the emergence of life, and the space we must give to life to let it flourish.
