Amelie Desjardins is a visual artist inspired by the sea and it’s surroundings. Her body of work reflects an ephemeral femininity through contrasts between soft subjects and strong textures. Her works convey a poetic time line composed by fragmented episodes of the life of different elements. Time is expressed through elements and textures with their own storytelling. Recycled wood aged by the sea serves as a symbol of cycles and purposes. Birds tell a story of tides, of life movements and their trace in static elements. The materials glimpse human intervention including the artist’s, a figurative recognition of the natural cycles and their interaction with human beings.
