Doris Charest (Cold Wind)

Doris Charest
"Cold Wind"
Rather than recreate an object or nature itself, I want to recreate the essence of the ‘object’ and transpose that quality into an abstract or semi-abstract work.  I want the observer to see the abstractness of the work before they recognize it as an object. My goal is to find joy and awareness by attending to the minor and seemingly insignificant--the colors, patterns and textures that exist in the close-up world.   That is the way that I like to look at the world. Each piece is a ‘personality’ that I have to find. In this particular series, Flutter, I wanted to capture the ephemeral and movement.
