About the Work

In her work, Marie-Noëlle Gagnan follows a winding path, which opens to new discoveries as she paints the emotions she feels. With strokes of the brush, she explores the riches and vulnerabilities of existence, searching for the inner truths.  She looks at the soul and all its interrogations, aspirations, disappointments, illusions and passions, drawing upon her own experiences and observations of the surrounding world. She communicates in a personal symbolic language, opening windows through which each onlooker observes a different world. One cannot expect to see everything in one glance. These things take time, and details emerge the longer one looks.
