In the Wake of Disaster, a Canadian Painter Shows the Beauty of Nepal—and Gives Back
Canadian artist, Marie Danielle Leblanc, was born in Trois-Rivières (Quebec) and has lived and worked in Montreal (Quebec) since 1990. Her paintings transform landscapes into poetic worlds. Her deeply saturated palettes bring new life to the sea, land and sky. And she transports her viewers to timeless and imaginary landscapes.
During her travels, she likes to write down her thoughts, make a note of the weather or the name of a place, take pictures and collect images. Leblanc’s travel diary is an ideal instrument for her. Whether she is driving on the highway or in the open country, walking on never-ending beaches or rocks stroked by the sea, it is through her travels that the artist captures landscapes that stretch into the vista.
She has participated in twenty solo exhibitions, and more than fifty group exhibitions. Her work has also been shown throughout Canada and in Paris, Sydney, Mexico and Tokyo.
Many artworks in this series were inspired by her two month Trek in Nepal in 2014 and our exhibit opened the day of the first devastating earthquake. A portion of all sales from this exhibit will be donated to Nepal quake relief efforts. These are the final artworks in this series of Abstracted landscapes.
