Sylvie Grondin

Sylvie Grondin

Artistic approach

The non-figurative was almost immediately imposed in her creative process. Abstract by definition, Grondin likes her art to be suggestive. She pursues a process of discovery and exploration with mixed media and printmaking. In this quest, textures, superimpositions of matter and glazes of colors reveal all the depth and transparency of her creations.
"My work ends when I feel that a great harmony emerges from the whole. I have the impression that one more gesture would clog it up and one less would miss, "she said.

Mixed and print.
