Jay Marie LeBlanc
My art is largely influenced by, and reflective of, the natural surroundings of the southwestern Nova Scotia shoreline; specifically the Acadian region of Baie Ste. Marie As an artist, female, somewhat Anglophone, slightly Francophone, repatriated Acadian, living in “mid-life” where the sea and the stars are so plainly visible, the exploration of themes including archetypal, cultural, and metaphysical is essential. Life affords many wonderful mediums for explorations. Colors and pieces seem to assemble themselves, surprising, as they become a finished form. The process and product provide clues to our existential nature. So I continue my serious play.
Workshops and Activities
I like mixing it up, and am interested in: - craft to portray subject matters - abstract art,and layering using usual as well as innovative materials (abstraction in varying degrees from recognizable representation to total abstraction) - innovative 3d installation that is versatile and collapsible for storage/ transport and play (and which can portray, and/or be pertinent to exploring subject matter) - also in creating small transformative spaces with movable walls, floors, ceilings etc. - I am interested in helping create portable labyrinths.
