Renee Gouin is a painter focusing in watecolours. She has several external influences the main being fashion photography. “I’m inspired by an array of aesthetics including the spare flatness of Japanese woodblock prints and the reductive visual vocabulary of Morandi.” Renee adds.
Her latest series Monotypes has a pastel palette having woman as a main character. “By emphasizing these flat abstract forms, I embrace the playful antics of cubism. I make monotype prints that strive to celebrate women’s relationship with clothes.” she explains. “My interest is to bring an awareness to the daily ritual of dressing and accessorizing, while pursuing my delight in form and color“.
