Interpretation of the work by the artist:This work is the first in the “Conversations” series. It's a nod to the relationship we have with screens. Carpe diem means “enjoy the present moment without worrying about tomorrow”. Seeing all of us scrolling the thread continuously, I wonder about the real quest. The calm of the moment or flight from the present?

  • The world is her laboratory.

    In a figurative style close to social realism, an American artistic movement dating from the 1930s, Johanne Maheux expresses her vision of life through thematic series that are a pretext to paint the universe as she sees it.

    She is particularly interested in social realities and certain themes are recurrent in her works, especially the relationship that human beings have with time; the time that passes, the time that remains, the time that is lost, that we have too much of or that we no longer have... She is also interested in everything that concerns communication between humans, as evidenced by her series "Conversations".

*Colors may vary from one screen to another.
