For a year now I’ve been coming to terms with double vision, which is not a good thing for a visual artist but does open up a depth of metaphor. In this painting I want to speak to our choices, whether realized or not, about how we perceive the world. Also, about polarization and binary positioning. The specific idea for the composition came when I saw my two pairs of glasses together in their case, red and green, neither of them an ideal correction to the underlying problem but nonetheless my lifeline to functional vision.

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!"
