Diane Brouillette was born in Valleyfield in 1960 and has gained a strong background in art. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (1985), she studied printmaking in Grenoble (France) and received a scholarship from the Canada Council for the Arts (1989) in order to perfect his techniques at the Academy of Fine – Florence Arts in Italy. His works are found in many private and public collections.
Diane Brouillette painted and exhibited professionally for almost 30 years. It is recognized – beyond our borders for his still lifes executed with a realism so special that his subjects vibrate and come alive. In recent years, the artist, unleashing the power of his imagination, gives new life to its iconography. His characters, lonely, frozen on the canvas, emerge from a world entrenched in the dream, the unconscious and the intimate. Only the hands and faces are highlighted. As his still lifes, his new paintings are executed with the same refined sense of detail and the same richness of matter and light. Diane Brouillette is revealed and yet his characters keep their secrets, behind a mask their hands or lowered eyelids. Is – that this paradox that captivates both the audience in search of an answer?
