Artist statement

I’m inspired and intrigued by the human condition that includes the never-ending quest for contentedness, joy, and a sense of completion. We all seek it out, and even when it is discovered, it can be fickle and elusive. What do we need to find and maintain new delights that will continue to inspire us? Life’s muses are personal, and can either feed (or deplete) one’s capacity to experience joy.

Focussed is an abstract painting by Canadian artist, Claire Desjardins.

The exhibition will comprise mainly of pieces from two of my painting series: Holiday Everyday, and the Halcyon series. The styles and the concepts behind these two series complement one another: both are inspired by the quest for joy, and I try to express that by my choice of happy #colours.
