Marie Gagnon

 


Becoming

from Under the Influence

Untitled

from The Four Seasons


Marie Gagnon participated in the The Four Seasons show in Spring/Summer 2017 and the Under the Influence show in Fall 2016 at Village West.

As an avid observer, Marie Gagnon paints what captures her heart and eye. She is always moved not only by the way light plays with objects but also with what appears to become invisible because it is seen as mundane. As a painter, Marie explores relationships while continually enamored with the act of mark making and laying paint to canvas. She enjoys reworking the same view in different ways, ever curious as to how it can be transformed.

Although a native New Englander, Marie lived and exhibited in Seattle for many years. In 2012, as the increase of cranes in the sky marred the landscape, she and 100 other artists were evicted from their studios in Seattle. Marie moved back east, settled in Providence, and now paints in her west side studio.
