Dee Poisson, AFCA – Artist Statement
"Through my work over the past 20 years, I have strived to share little
things and places that people rush by every day without seeming to
notice. The contemplative process of colored pencil is a contradiction
to the speed of contemporary society and lends itself so well to the
details of the subjects that I choose. There are other mediums in my
life yet none match the relevance of colored pencil for me.
My work shows the beauty of inconsequence. I endeavor to bring life to the ordinary so that it can be appreciated. I have learned to see and its exciting that there is so much more to enjoy in our surroundings when we are not in a hurry.
Some of my work seeks to find humour in an ordinary day. Other work appreciates the fold of a leaf, the plump of a berry or a life moment of a bug. All of these things require moments of stillness for me which are a conscious effort in my own busy day.
AFCA is an accreditation that I have earned through the Board of Governors at the Federation Of Canadian Artists in 2016."
