Today, acrylic on metal has a defining place in Dallaire’s work. Her innovative use of transparent acrylic hues on aluminum creates tones of luminosity in each piece. These tones, combined with the rich textures attributed by the inclusion of coffee beans and stones, are highlighted with the final step of adding a clear coat of lacquer; thus giving her work a sense of continuity and completeness. The enrapturing contrast between the frigidity of the metal and the warmth of the overall composition thus results in the creation of stunning works of art.
