Gabrielle Dupont

Originally from Châteauguay, a quiet suburb south of Montréal, Gabrielle has been living in the Canadian North since 2007.Growing up in the early 90's, she quickly learned an efficient
remedy to boredom: drawing and then painting.
Her love of drawing led her to pursue a career in architecture, where lines and forms follow well structured paths. Not so on the canvas where the pressure of the straight line is released. Painting has proven to be her most comfortable vehicle for rendering her inner vision to outer reality.Nowadays, she splits her time between her off-grid cabin at beautiful Marsh Lake and her cozy home in Whitehorse, Y.T. creating artworks inspired by the vibrant colours and landscapes of the Canadian North.“After visiting wild places and secret spots, I try to convey what I saw and felt. After all, we are only experiences and perception.”

It's all about choices

Why use different styles and different mediums?It's said the way we think about the world is influenced by the language we use to talk about it. The two are interwined.In the same vein, the choice of medium influences what we are trying to say. Acrylic, oil, watercolour: each conveys different rhythms, atmospheres and moods. I paint with different mediums to convey different things.I love you or je t'aime ?

Watercolour painting by Gabrielle Dupont

Acrylic

Acrylic and gouache on canvas is my medium of choice. I prefer this medium for large paintings and to experiment with new concepts and styles.

Oil

Oil is old-fashioned and warm and bold. Butterknife is a tool I use with this type of painting. Many oil paintings were made with a butterknife...sans butter.

Watercolour

Lightness of a feather. With watercolour the gentleness of the sunlight meets the harsh mountain contours without a splash.
