About the Artwork

I often found unexpected bits of nature blown into my garden by the wind. This debris, broken bird eggs, bits of plants or insects, inspired a new idea. Combining them with the Japanese concept of kintsugi (repairing and repurposing broken objects by painting the imperfections with gold to make them precious again), I developed my sculptural piece, ‘Garden Treasures’.

The sculpture consists of three white wooden containers with broken eggshells filled with objects. Each egg contains a small, unnoticed element from my garden. Kintsugi is also a metaphor for embracing imperfections in life. Each imperfect element is now singled out

Doris Charest, AFCA

St. Albert, Alberta

Nature and the world around her inspire Doris. Mixed media is Doris’ favorite form of painting. She loves exploring textures, shapes, and a more contemporary look. Art has become a voyage of discovery and she follows it to see where it will bring her.

"Capturing memories in a way that a camera cannot, my paintings invite you to explore the subject; quietly discovering what is really there. Each painting is a story waiting to happen"
