Opening: Saturday 16th June 2018
Annabelle Marquis presents her much-anticipated third solo exhibition in Victoria. A Montreal based artist, now sought for collections around the world, her paintings are unique and commanding. Using mixed media collage with gold leaf she is equally happy painting purely abstract or figurative work. Striking colours and strong design are at the heart of her pieces and draw each viewer further in to her world.
" 'Until you spread your wings, you’ll have no idea how far you can fly'
This is the sentiment that I wish to express via my paintings; each holds it within, whether it be through a symbol displayed in the collage or by the theme of the painting itself. I hope these paintings will take you as far as they’ve taken me, or maybe even further!"
