Native of Sherbrooke, the self-taught painter France Lamontagne (Francel) likes to imprint her canvases with the experiences that have marked her career. It was through her twenty-three years in floral art, her nine years in jewelry design and taking various expression courses that she entered the world of artistic creation. Visual art is her preferred mode of expression today. Member of the “Regroupement des artistes en arts visuels du Québec” (RAAV), her work attracted attention, among others, at the “Salon du design de Montréal” in 2014. Some of her creations were recently selected by Quebecor Médias (TVA Group) and were part of the first three seasons of the television series “L’heure bleue”.
The exhibit “Frénésie, Mille et un éclats” by Francel (France Lamontagne) plunges us into a universe filled with emotions that are expressed through the amalgamation of various materials and mixed techniques that blend and contrast by creating movement. which calls out and attracts the eye. It is like an explosion of colors and the effect is striking.
The artist's creations remain an invitation to share in the intimate life buried in each of us and offer a moment that connects each human being.
