With antique cloths, school books, architectural plans, papers, lace, found objects, and more, Christine Peloquin weaves an autobiographical tapestry in her works that invoking and addressing universal issues.
“Art and life is always about becoming more conscious, more aware, and more of yourself”, says Peloquin. “The joy in my process of collaging, drawing and painting is the instinctual choices of rendering and harmonizing what I will cover up and what I will leave to be revealed.”
Her dynamic images range from faces and figures of women and children to landscapes, nature scenes and abstracts. Most of the titles come from appropriate words found in the collage and originate from messages of philosophy, spirituality, sexuality, motherhood and self-awareness. All the pieces begin with fabric and paper collage arranged, sewn and adhered to wood panels. Over the collages, the drawings are done in charcoal and the work is painted with acrylics and mediums.
An Opening Reception will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2012 from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm. Peloquin will give an Artist’s Talk on Friday, March 23 at 11:00 am. Both events are free and open to the public. The exhibition “Part of the Process” will be on display until March 23, 2012.
Christine lives and works in Mount Dora and has been selling work for well over 20 years. She has also shown in numerous galleries around the country.
