Exposition Blanc Sur Noir
Le Centre Culturel Aberdeen aura une toute nouvelle exposition à la Galerie 12 à partir du vendredi 14 juin intitulé Blanc Sur Noir. Les artistes des ouvres sont Diana LeBlanc et Jocelyne Doiron. Voici leur démarche artistique:
L’ardoise et la porcelaine sont des matériaux qui m’inspirent par leur fragilité. La blancheur de la porcelaine contre les veines noires de l’ardoise me rappelle la craie que l’on utilisait anciennement sur les tablettes, du temps ou nos ancêtres recevaient leur éducation. La cohabitation des deux matériaux, la porcelaine et l’ardoise donnent une direction et articule mon travail. L’intimité qui constitue l’essence reste encrée à l’intérieur pour ne jamais se dévoiler. L’ardoise et la porcelaine, ces matériaux m’inspirent par leur fragilité.
