Artist's interpretation of the work:

This work is the second in a series of three paintings. It is therefore inspired by the same landscape; a small wooded area in the village of St-Alphonse in Gaspésie. In this section of the decor, we could see a part of the woodland that had been cleared for a few years.


The omnipresent moss, clinging to the old tree stumps, added a touch of green color to this enchanting setting. Once again, I had the feeling of being in a forest belonging to a fairy tale, where fairies and goblins play at making passers-by's dreams come true.


What appealed to me in painting this part of the landscape was that it was possible to observe a strong contrast: the interrelated relationship of certain elements of nature expressing their last breath of life, combined with those who had just been born.


The older ones had dark colors, with rough and solid textures, while the newer elements had bright colors, with a soft and silky appearance. The latter colored every free space with bright green, as if nature refused to admit defeat.

  • Through her realism style paintings, Chantal is guided by the way colors, shapes and light interact in harmony with nature.

    Her approach is meticulous, her brush strokes are precise and delicate. Her artistic technique is constantly evolving and it is with the exploration of different mixed media that she gradually abandons oil painting, in order to devote herself for several years only to acrylic. With time, Chantal adds more and more textures to the trunks she paints, and now integrates real pieces of bark, which become the common thread in all her works.


    Her work is above all a tribute to trees. Through her paintings, this artist is constantly looking for a way to express the feelings that they give off for her: resilience, strength, rootedness, originality, hope, singularity, mystery, well-being and impermanence.


    Through her work, Chantal hopes to encourage people to live in connection with nature, and also to respect it. An awareness that the human being is partly interrelated to this grandiose nature, which can bring us so many benefits.
