Atonement

Louise Monfette

The Opening reception will take place on Friday, February 08, 2008, from 5–8 p.m. at Xchanges Artists’ Gallery and Studios, 420 William St. in Vic West.

Mixed media works by Louise Monfette reflect on personal, secular and religious symbols of making amends and reconciliation. Inspiration is drawn from diverse sources including songs by Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen and the artist’s catholic background.

Her images connote confinement, pain, glory, redemption and joy. An important element is selecting the materials that evoke these messages. Rich colours and gold leaf are juxtaposed with metal and nails.

The artist is interested in the interplay between that which is attractive, yet menacing.
