Based in: Sherbrooke
Born in Ste-Anne de la Rochelle, Quebec and established in Sherbrooke since 1980, Marie-Claire (Mariclair) Plante began her artistic career in 1995. Self-taught, her unconventional training is acquired over the years through his encounters, experiences, travels, readings and class with great masters. A collaboration on creative thinking with sculptor and painter, Laurent Bonet was decisive for her. Passionate and attentive to her great sensitivity, her instinct guides her in the world of abstract art. Her inspiration is revealed in her freedom of expression, to achieve this she declines her practice in a few series ‘Energy, Emotion, Perception, Cocooning’. His energetic and sensory gestures touch the depth of feelings.
Mariclair’s paintings have seduced collectors around the world.
Since 2012, it has been winning awards in Canada, France and the United States.
It is represented by several galleries in Canada and internationally.
“Also, each of his paintings has its own story which is expressed however by the unsaid and an infinity of nuances all in roundness with softness and poetry. This explains the feeling of voluptuousness that one feels in contact with his work which tomorrow could well reach great heights. Without a doubt, the name of Marie-Claire Plante will leave an indelible mark on our painting today.” M. Robert Bernier, expert and art historian.
