About the Artwork

This work manifests the edge in a number of ways. First and most profoundly, it speaks of the ultimate threshold we all must cross. Then, for me, the act of painting was a step into and through a stage of grief and coming to terms: it had been a year since my mother passed from this place. Finally, I was and am pretty uncertain about whether “this is what we do”: are we to paint about the intimate, the taboo—about death and dying—and if so, how to undertake this communication and how is it to be received?

Oiseau, AFCA

Argenta, British Columbia

Oiseau lives and paints in the mountains of British Columbia, Canada. While she focuses primarily on portraiture and the figure, plein air landscape painting is also an important part of her practice and inspiration.

"In painting as in life, whatever distance you travel just opens up further vistas for exploration. Subtleties, bold statements, complexities of relationships, colour, colour, colour. I wish I could paint forever!"
