About the artist:
Striving to paint emotion, Juanita Bellavance's goal is to create the awe, the wonder, and the experience we feel in nature, in music, and in special life moments. The feeling that gives us pause.
Having previously been a Music Specialist in public schools Bellavance shares that complex sounds, spaces, textures and tones translate into complex surfaces making a painting very rich. These musical ideas inform all of her work. Sometimes the rhythms are submerged and sometimes they rise to the top.
There is a dialogue that develops between herself and the painting. As the layers of paint accumulate so does the meaning. Connections flow and coalesce into magical and mysterious combinations. These actions renew her spirit in the act of creation.
