Curator on the Go Podcast

Paige Ring's abstract works showcase bold brush strokes and are often colorful with layers of organic lines weaving through them. Paige is a minimalist at heart, so most of her work provides a space for the viewers’ eye to rest, she likes to think of it as a moment of calm in the sea of beautiful chaos. Paige uses her work to escape the realities of the world, retreating into a playful, imaginary place where color and whimsy take over.

Curator on the Go Podcast

Madeleine Gross is a Toronto-based artist who customizes her photographs with paint in a way designed to abstract landscapes but without completely abstracting reality. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design where she gained a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography, Madeleine intuitively applies gesture, texture, color, and strokes with paint with the idea of emulating an immersive reality for viewers and in turn induces the sensation of actually being there just by looking.

Hello! You are listening to Curator on the Go Podcast! Today, I had the pleasure of speaking to Toronto-based artist Jacques Descoteaux.

For over 25 years, Jacques was the accountant by day, the artist by night. He came from an artistic family and has studied under a number of professional artists - collectively, they all helped Jacques found his artistic voice. From watercolor to pastel to oil paints and a few other media, Jacques’ painting style has evolved over time, but it’s always been influenced by his first studies in watercolor. 

His paintings are an exploration of color, of light, of rhythms and patterns, of movement and space. Jacques is inspired by the landscape, but his paintings go beyond the landscape – they are about memory and transport you to imagined places, to imaginary moments. Over the years, he presented his work in a number of solo and group shows and sold art to private collectors in Canada and the US.

When we recorded this interview, Jacques was at his art residency in Ireland. So, bear that in mind. When he describes what he does and how he paints “here” – he is talking about his art residency.
