Layers by Pat Carbonneau

July 24, 2020 to August 7, 2020Friday: 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm. Galerie Old Chelsea is pleased to present Layers, by Ottawa artist Pat Carbonneau, an accomplished mixed media artist who brings a range of media to her works. Over the years she has explored working with oil, acrylic, sumi-e brush painting, watercolour, collage, and she even took up gyotaku (the art of painting with real fish). Today she works primarily with mixed media, encaustics, and collage to create beautiful contemporary art through abstraction.Carbonneau's artwork is an expression of an inner experience, whether hers or that of others, as she expresses the universality of the human experience. These often-unconscious energies point to issues that are usually both personal and universal. Explains Carbonneau "I don't always know why I choose a certain subject or colour, but I believe there is a connection with our shared inner world that comes into being though the act of creative expression."Pat Carbonneau exhibits widely in the Ottawa area and is a well-known mixed media artist.Galerie Old Chelsea is a collective of regional artists located in the beautiful Gatineau Hills above Les Fougères restaurant.By appointment Wednesdays. 783 Route 105Old Chelsea, QC J9B 1P1..
