The Day My Whole World Turned Upside Down
Playing around with reference materials intended for a different project, I saw that if I flipped one of the figures I would get a better fit in the whole space. Ignoring the fact that “you can’t do that,” I decided to proceed and see what would happen. What resonated for me was the experience which we all are faced with sooner or later, of needing to come to terms with the unexpected and unacceptable. If I could make it work in the painting, perhaps I would have gained a very relevant tool for survival?

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!"
