Well, aren’t these just gorgeous! But these dream-like paintings by Montreal artist Dominique Fortin, are much more than they seem, they are incredibly deep and rich with symbolism.
The artistic statement on Fortin’s website is beautifully written and offers great insight into the artist’s work. Her paintings have a romantic feeling, while centering on a theme of constant renewal, the circle of life and death. Winged creatures act as spiritual guides, and tell a tale of metamorphosis. The artist’s use of her own daughter as a prominent figure in her work, shows yet another kind of rebirth, another part of the circle.
