January 2017 – Christine Peloquin
Christine Peloquin is a 2-D mixed media artist who has been selling her artwork for 30 years. All the pieces begin with fabric and paper collage arranged, sewn and adhered to wood panels. The collages consist of any of the following; antique cloths, contemporary fabrics, antique dictionary pages, old children’s school books, atlases, architectural plans, wallpaper, tablecloths, napkins, lace, buttons, flowers, leaves and any variety of papers and 2D found objects. Over the collages, the drawings are done in charcoal and the work is painted with acrylics and mediums.
“My intention is to weave an autobiographical tapestry invoking and addressing universal issues such as philosophy, spirituality, sexuality, motherhood and self-awareness. Most of the titles come from appropriate words found in the collage. I believe that art and life are always about becoming more conscious, more aware, and more of yourself. For me, this includes life as an artist, a woman and a mother.” Christine lives and works in Eustis. To see more of her work, click here.
