Hélène Lessard is often asked about the meaning that was given to the phrase “artistic process” and, each time, the image that was needed for it was that of a hiker with his card, his compass and his guide, and knew perfectly what marked trails take to reach your destination. What is to achieve the goal we set itself if one removes what constitutes the essence of true artistic practice, that is to say, the audacity, risk, discovery and above the doubt?
The courage of this exceptional artist will open the door to a universe particularly dance and rich. In this new world the raw material, colors and unbridled pure instinct combine to form a whole that transcends reality. For Hélène Lessard, share the artistic impulse primarily an emotion which translates as it can on the canvas. She then shapes it and reinvents the meaning in a speech that makes the colors speak.
“Painting is the channel of communication and communion where everything is possible. I am an explorer who finds pleasure in the discovery of an unknown route. I do not paint to prove what I can do, I paint to be shaken up, questioned, transformed shapes, images, colors, transformed by the painting itself.” - Hélène Lessard
