Jocelyne McCaughan is self-taught, though mentored for a while by Tibor Kovalik, an internationally renowned painter from the Fine Arts of Prague. His precious advice enabled her in perfecting her paintings in oil, watercolor, colored pencils, red chalk and graphite, emphasizing the importance of lingering on the depiction itself.
Some of the artist’s compositions are presented in an illusory way. This approach allows her to visually transmit emotions as well as perceived messages. The subjects in her paintings have a figurative approach, while their environments have an impressionist touch.
Among the various mediums used, she has a certain preference for oil painting. The latter, through glazing, makes the colors more intense and increases the effect of depth.
This exhibition presents two broad aspects of nature.
The first one entitled “LA FLORE”, the theme being “Les fleurs de marais ces belles méconnues'' (flowers of the marshland, beautiful and unfamiliar). These creations will certainly surprise and delight by their great beauty.
The second one “LA FAUNE”, under the theme ''La faune aviaire et ses habitats'', (avian fauna and its habitats). Ornithology enthusiasts will be delighted to find some of their favorite birds. For visitors who want to learn more about this wonderful world, they will have the opportunity to linger and absorb valuable information.
Opening reception will be held on Sunday the 19thof March at 2 p.m.
