Assumption Gallery presents the work of Marjolaine Paulin

Moncton (NB), November 27, 2021 - Abstract art joins geometric forms and the inspiration of nature to create the intuitive works of Marjolaine Paulin exhibited throughout the month of November and December at the Assumption Gallery. These paintings are intended to reflect on the current situation and the ecological crisis to challenge people.
 
The Caraquet-born artist, who currently lives in Moncton, intertwines shapes and colours in a fascinating dichotomy that brings balance to her work. "I let the liquid acrylic flow onto the canvas and I don't mix it at all. I let it flow and the blue and yellow become green on the canvas. This technique really gives special effects," she explains.
 
The shades, colours and shadows of nature inspire her enormously during her walks in the woods. Her works are a metaphor for the current situation of the pandemic and the ecological crisis. "My painting "Ramification" represents the ramifications of everything that is currently happening in nature. We should have a social conscience in the sense that we really need to rethink our relationship with the larger nature. It can be worrying for factory farming, deforestation and habitat destruction by humans, or any of these human activities that are detrimental to nature. She is sending us a cry of alarm. She is telling us that she is fragile and that there is not an infinite amount of natural resources. If we are not careful, there will be a price to pay," she says.
 
The artist therefore sees in "Ramifications" a representation of the sea and a tree that symbolize the ramifications of human activities that are disproportionate to nature itself. For her, colours are metaphors for her emotions and moods. "Colour is a vibration, an energy that we give off," she adds.
 
Paulin also sees her work as an element of continuity and natural philosophy with the constant changes in nature. "Nature changes and adapts to survive. The continuity in my work and art is always evolving and changing," she concludes.
 
The Assumption Gallery exhibits paintings of contemporary, modern or popular art, of a historical or folkloric nature, as well as sculptures and photographs by professional Canadian artists. Six exhibitions, of two months each, are presented there each year. It is located at 770 Main Street in Moncton, on the ground floor of the Place de l'Assomption building.
