Brigitte Dahan detains a bachelor's degree in fine arts from the University of Quebec in Montreal. She has been painting and taking digital photography for a while now. For several years, she has also been working with three-dimensional shapes, particularly through ceramic sculptures. She has participated in several solo and group exhibits in Quebec but mostly in the Eastern Townships where she has her studio.
Her exhibition entitled “Perpetual Motion” presents thirty of her sculptural creations and ceramic murals, sometimes incorporating wood, metal or digital printing. Figurative and abstract representations mingle in her works of art, which are also characterized by a strong presence in the subject: shaped, textured and often perforated, she refers to living tissue (human, vegetal or mineral) testifying on the mark of time.
From medium to life-size creations, characters, half humans, half animals, half vegetal seem to engage in a dialogue between themselves and the onlooker. Others which are more abstract refer to the transformation of the material generated by the passage of time.
The artist’s main idea for this exhibit raises questions about our human condition, an individual's relation towards a group and our relationship with nature and its unchanging cycle.
