About Five Blossom Gatherings - Denise Richard Works of Art

DENISE RICHARD WORKS OF ART is registered as art that is not usual. Of a small town in Quebec, Canada, my artistic development had the normal university formation, with an added support of an international influence. Beyond these standards I was engaged to grow with indigenous and Taoist training setting a value for art as personal empowerment. Learning from Masters of old and working with physical origins that held respect for community standards, these elders protected care for all. When compassionate care engages and influences the making of art – we reclaim a natural expression in care and health.

The work engages traditions of old as the interest in heart reflects environmental concern. The use of medium as paper, pastel and tempera in practice reflect temporality and the cyclical power of nature. Spirituality is expressed as the power of creation that cares for the cycles we engage in health and growth.

Thematically my work cares for community and environment of old. Living a coastal climate in a temperate rain forest offers a close look at current concerns. These are large drawings, set in gold as earth is resource for nourishment and the keeping of standards.
