A whirlwind of memories

...and an electrifying vernissage on November 2nd

"Memory of the Past" is a doorway to the childhood of Chelsea artist Johanne Sylvestre. Each painting tells a memory,  Hide and Seek Games; a place, Alouette Beach; a flavor, Liquorice; a loved one, Aunt Antoinette's flowers. Each canvas evokes an emotion that the artist recreates through the harmony or contrast of colors and movements: in turn light, strong, circular or linear brushstrokes. The walls of the gallery vibrate with an energy sometimes serene, sometimes explosive. The exhibition is like Johanne Sylvestre: warm, generous, full of passion and joie de vivre. The following pictures are good proof.

Do not miss the exhibition on display until November 26.
