About the Artwork

This painting started in 2016 when my walking journey through Burgundy took me to the caves of Arcy-sur-Cure which were inhabited by our ancestors for hundreds of thousands of years. There I saw 28,000-year-old paintings, among them the tracings of hands outlined with ochre. These hands moved me immensely: it was like seeing the act itself. It was like meeting the painter. What is that impulse? How am I imprinted and how do I in turn imprint? The high point of this painting was brushing earth colours onto my hands and carefully placing my own print on the canvas.

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!"
