Isabelle Renaud

Isabelle Renaud has completed her six-week stay in the residence-atelier. Here is how she sums up her experience:

“The six weeks I have lived in the peaceful and welcoming environment of the residence gave me the opportunity to be in tune with a creative microclimate. The work on which I focused evolved; a transformation took place, due to my contact with the sounds of the creek and its perpetual movement. The place, and the time spent here, helped me concentrate on the dialogue possible between myself and the work, between the work and the public, between the audience and the artist.”
Thank you Isabelle for having kicked off the residence in such a great way!

D’Arts et de rêves is proud to welcome Isabelle Renaud, an interdisciplinary visual artist in residence for a period of six weeks ending December 9.

Having recently completed a graduate diploma in current artistic practices at Université de Sherbrooke, Isabelle was looking forward to taking a step back, to better continue her research as well as her artistic production.

“I attended the official opening of the artist residence in June and I was drawn by the place. I grew up on a small farm, so being here brings back memories of the great outdoors and the countryside. The view is enchanting. It seems quite a friendly place which makes me feel at home while being elsewhere.”

Isabelle draws, paints, and sculpts. She is inspired by the plurality of the human being, its mechanism and its ecosystem, creating a universe that is sometimes close to surrealism and fantasy. “The weeks spent at the D’Arts et de rêves residence will enable me to immerse myself in both the stillness and the movement of the surrounding landscape.” The paintings created at the residence will be on display at the Maison des arts et de la culture of Brompton in January.

D’Arts et de rêves invites everyone interested in art and creation, artist or not, to an exchange with its first artist in residence:
