Artistic approach

Maude Corriveau is interested in the action of light on matter through a hyperrealist practice in drawing and painting. In this body of pictorial works, the artist explores the formal qualities of drapery as the main subject of her compositions, while revisiting the genre of still life. An omnipresent motif in the history of Western art, draping was initially intended to conceal the body in order to magnify its forms, until it gradually emancipated itself and became autonomous. Passionate about the expressive force of her sinuous folds, Corriveau explores the notions of surface, skin and envelope, thus calling into question the bordering space between what is perceived and what is fantasized. It is with retro-reflective textiles having the capacity to reflect light thanks to micro-prisms that she pursues her fascination with optical phenomena. The pastel drawings and oil paintings in this series feature iridescent colors that blend into the fluid textures, dissolving into their shimmering reflection.
