Dominique Caron approaches her canvases with color, vigor and joy suggesting a luminous art de-vivre. The artist in her mixed media paintings evocatively combines dream-state beauty with gritty archeology.  Articulate swaths of color and energetic lines reveal the elegance of primitive influences.  Yet beneath the surface are layers of scrap cloth, old drawings and bits of calligraphy, possibly memories of an individual or fragments form a forgotten source. Dominique’s artistic influences from the modern and the primitive portray the mélange of contemporary society with its complex layers of memories and meanings.

 

Originally from France, Dominique studied art at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux where she received her MFA. She traveled for many years in Morocco, Rwanda, and the Ivory Coast.  She has exhibited successfully in Africa and Europe and later moved to San Francisco where her works became larger, more varied in subject matter and even more colorful. Her work has been represented in many prominent galleries in Canada and the United States and is in major private and corporate collections in France, Japan and the United States.

My great pleasure is about letting my hand free on canvas and seeing my way through patterns and colors in a spontaneous burst of visual language. I believe that an artist, through the freedom of choice, can gather uplifting visual elements to find a path to joy.
