Agathe Bouton

“Vue de la Vitre” is an intimate series of abstract landscapes composed of coloured atmospheres that reference my vision of the outside world through a window. The glass is sometimes altered by the weather which brings a blurry and imprecise vision to the view. At times the pane is a veil of imperfection, distorting the view and blurring its reading. These window panes are found in industrial buildings and workshops which make up the urban landscape of North American cities.

I took the square shape for my format and added my hazy vision of a distant landscape. Each work is a print on paper mounted on canvas then reworked with washes of acrylic paint. This creates a play of overlays and lights that allows us to see atmospheres rich in colour and depth.Atmospheres that vary from day to day. Sometimes the light is early in the morning, sometimes it announces the end of the day.

L'Heure Bleue depicts the light of the early evening, the moment of the day which veils in blue just before nightfall.
