Martin Gallery will celebrate their 10th year as one of Charleston’s premier art galleries, with a reception on Friday, May 1st, from 5 to 8 pm. The gallery is pleased to announce that they will be joined by Montreal artist, Joan Dumouchel, who will be presenting a new collection of original paintings. Joan Dumouchel’s paintings are incredibly striking and unique. As though peering into some mystical world, Joan’s work give a sense of wonder and fantasy. Over years her work has developed through her own personal life, as well as the journey of her performance artist daughter, Elise. Traveling all over the world performing the art of “le cirque,” Elise certainly leads a fantastical life. She has performed with troupes like Cirque du Soleil, and is currently studying at a prestigious performance school in Paris. Though Elise has inspired the body of work, Joan Dumouchel has projected herself onto each canvas, revealing a familiar and intriguing body of work, that one cannot help but fall into.
