Diane Fontaine

Artistic approach

Nature, animals and human beings are the main subjects in Dionne’s artistic practice. Inspired by the environment that surrounds her, she creates landscapes that contrast dream and reality. She mixes colors and textures in a unique way that makes us escape in different worlds. The landscapes in her art tell us many stories, but also reveal our own. Her work resembles the nomad lifestyle: it makes us travel inside the image and inside ourselves.
