Canadian Artist Melanie Authier’s paintings bring together visual contradictions into one imaginary space.
By drawing upon the histories of abstraction and the strategies of representation, she presents improbable environments. A sense of disorientation comes about through the way in which colour, texture, line and shape compete for room within the canvas. Each work presents a brimming jostle of oppositions that the viewer is invited to bring into a certain order.
The work on her website, being in date order, shows perfectly her development as an artist.
