Danielle Cadieux

For the last twelve years, I have directed my research in a very specific field: the monotype. In the monotype, the speed of colour application favors expressive spontaneity and improvisation. From one printing to the next, I move pieces of paper on a plexiglass base. Inking, paper: using apparently simple means, I produce hybrid colour effects and variations of internal radiance which emerge from the rapid, spontaneus process. For me the work of creating monotypes represents a moment of grace.
The arborescent line may evoke minerals, veins on leaves, biologically-related images, visions of the human body… a polysemic world. Forms equally suggest crystals, geological and vegetable forms. The encounter between the line and the energy of colour reveals unexpected possibilities of being.

 

Danielle Cadieux, an artist of wide-ranging experience, has taken part since 1989 in numerous individual and collective exhibitions. She has completed several courses and traineeships in divers techniques as lithography, wood engraving, caburundum, etching and collagraphy. The artist has been associated with the Zocalo art studio of Longueil since 1996. In 1999, she followed professional improvement training at the Croix-Baragnon studio of engraving in Toulouse. Since 2014, she has been presenting her new monotype series in the Luz Gallery. In 2015, Danielle Cadieux took part in the Seventeenth International Engraving Biennale in Sarcelles, France. She also belongs to RAAV and the Self-managed Artists’ Center of Longueuil, Zocalo.
