Current Exhibition at Harcourt House Artist Run Centre The Harcourt Team cordially invites you to the virtual launch of two new exhibition projects: “Absence of Presence” in Harcourt’s Art Incubator Gallery, and “Harcourt’s Studios: Art In Isolation” in Harcourt’s Main Gallery along with the launch of two documentary films: “Absence of Presence / Art In Isolation”and “Harcourt’s Studio Artists: Making Art in the Time of Covid” created and produced by Yvonne DuBourdieu of ArtHouse Productions Inc.
Yvonne uses a wide variety of styles and impulses of painterly language to explore the space and visual experiences of painting. Through her art practice she deconstructs and reinvents her life experiences and life interests through photographs, memory and imagination. She applies marks of expressionism and abstraction to the subjects that populate her work - nature, plants, birds, animals and humans - and assembles them into spaces that resonate with the emotional and atmospheric, as well as the narrative, to build bold and intriguing paintings.
“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.” ― Pablo Picasso
