About the Artwork

This painting is rooted in a memory of my very young sister operating her Christmas morning jack-in-the-box. Somehow I wanted to capture everything about the situation: the turning of the handle, the springing up of the puppet, and the gasping delight. Along with the special holiday dress and rich colours. So I started by taking a lot of photographs and predictably, the one I decided to work with was not directly related to any of that but still seemed to express the mood and gesture I was after.

This piece will not be included in the physical exhibition on Granville Island but meets the quality standards of the FCA and is classified as, "Recognized Artwork."

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!"
