Two Perspectives – Deux Perspectives

Two Perspectives – Deux Perspectives is an exhibition by two artists whose work uses fibre and textiles to create contemporary art. Their approach to their art is from two different basis: Quilting and Embroidery.

 

Marie-France Gosselin

My name is Marie-France Gosselin and I am originally from Amos, Quebec and have been living in the Ottawa area for the past 40 years. I am mostly a self-taught artist although I have been taking the odd art class and experiment at every opportunity possible. My path as an artist started as a quilter.

 

In deconstructing the traditional world of quilting, I have attempted to reconstruct the elements in contemporary designs, form, methods and application integrating not only traditionally used cotton normally used with quilting, but various textiles such as canvas, yarn, silk, and wool. My artistic vocabulary is extended with the application of paint and ink, accenting forms and colours. Texture is becoming an intrinsic component of the work. Through the use of collaged fibres, compositions are created with new born textures with the application of varied mediums and stitching.

 

Pat Caffery

My name is Pat Caffery. I am an artist, designer and teacher who has taught and exhibited for more than 20 years, including an exhibit in London, England as well as many juried shows in Toronto, Oakville, Cornwall, Verona, Italy, Ogdensburg, N.Y., several other Ontario and US locations. She has also participated in group shows in Ontario. Most recently she held her first solo show, Beneath the Surface, at the Shenkman Art Centre, Orleans, Ontario. A video of that show can be found on YouTube.

 

Embroidery has been part of my life for many years and it is evident in my current work. I enjoy marrying the traditional and non-traditional techniques, fibres and textiles along with beads, plant materials and metals to create artwork that is both original and unusual.
