Atelier M. Arseneault et D. Robichaud
visual artist / painter and print-maker
I am an emerging artist, born and working in Moncton, New Brunswick. Having focused my studies on painting and print-making (Université de Moncton, B.A.v. 2006), my artistic vision now includes both practices, each taking the lead in turn. Currently in my work, I appropriate and revisit found photographs, investigating narrative within the image, and memory within the object. The reinterpretations of portraits, be it of flowers or people, help me tap into a certain collective memory that lives through a photograph.
Dominik Robichaud has chosen the tradition of painting, through which she explores several themes: heredity, fragmentation and autobiography. Using personal photos, the artist creates series that may contain portraits, self-portraits, houses, flowers or still-lifes, thus also referring to past experiences. Robichaud paints her memories, her personal and family stories filled with exaggerated features, textures and interwoven objects and expressive colours applied in a variety of ways.
The artist in a quest to find her roots, blurs the line between myth and reality.
Dominik Robichaud was born in Moncton in 1985. A graduate of the University of Moncton in visual arts, her work attempts to define and shed light on a memory, which is both personal and collective. In addition to group exhibitions, she has produced solo exhibitions such as: Home Sweet Home, Familier and Rites, rythmes et rituels. The artist resides in Moncton and teaches art classes for the youth.
