France Jodoin: Journey Elsewhere (04.16.2021 – 05.23.2021)

Canada-based artist France Jodoin is an impressionist known for her dreamlike maritime scenes and unique European Romanticism-inspired style. Through the use of muted tones, the imagery appears as though the viewer is seeing her work through a fine mist or slight fog. Water is an important component of Jodoin’s work and appears in all of her paintings, even the cityscapes and floral still lifes. Intuitive and instinctive, her paintings evoke a simpler time with a slower pace.

Her work is in private and public collections including the Sherbrooke Museum of Fine Arts, Loto-Quebec and Cirque du Soleil. Jodoin lives and works in a small town nestled in the forests of Southern Quebec.

“Nothing I paint is real. I like to say the buildings, places and people are like actors without the script. I leave the rest to the imagination of the viewer. I paint to suggest ideas only.”

-France Jodoin
