Intricately wrought yet happily uninhibited, Marian Gaucher’s artwork offers what she calls “a puzzle for the eyes.” Gaucher is equally influenced by Cubism, Old Master realism, and the complex aesthetic possibilities of geometry. Her pieces reflect a deep understanding of mathematics on top of what are traditionally thought of as the building blocks of art - namely light, line, and color theory. She fractures an object to show its sides, but also weaves it into a larger composition of other objects and figures that have been opened up the same way. She is able to balance the fracturing effect throughout a piece, thereby creating a larger geometric feat and allowing the audience a glimpse of an entire new world.
Gaucher’s eye is roving; she depicts people in action, city streets, leafy landscapes, and all manner of still life arrangements. In pastel and oil paint, she recreates lively concerts and quiet autumn hillsides. Her people and her object studies are equally expressive, with bright palettes and unpredictable, compelling lines lending a constant energy to any one of her chosen subjects.
Gaucher was born in Canada and currently lives in Ottawa, where she studied art. She has exhibited in both Canada and the United States.
Press Release - Agora Gallery - October 19, 2015 http://www.agora-gallery.com/artistpage/Marian_Gaucher.aspx#info
Canadian artist Marian Gaucher is a master of oils and pastels, creating abstract paintings replete with vivid, rich colors and filled with elements of interest, beauty, and emotion. Each image starts with a subject, whether landscape, cityscape, still life, or human figure. In the process of capturing each on canvas or paper, Gaucher abstracts her subjects and thus enters a new level of expressionism that offers a certain mystery to the image while revealing its subjects in unexpected ways. Gaucher works to keep the subject identifiable while also expanding and enhancing the finished images, “making them a puzzle for the eyes.”
The influence of Cubism is evident in her paintings, which are defined by geometric, enigmatic forms and bold strokes. The resulting design, the nuances attained by the variety of shapes used, and the dynamic rhythm that underscores each piece all make for a unique artistic style meant to enchant and intrigue the viewer. Gaucher’s greatest hope is that these visual worlds of wonder inspire the viewer and invite him or her to see the world in a whole new way.
