Lyne Lafontaine, 1959 | Symbolist /Fantasy painter

Canadian painter Lyne Lafontaine: "Between reality and imaginary, I explore a world where human faces are at the center of my artworks.
My universe moves around symbolism, fantasy, onirism and feminity. Sensitivity and liberty must prevail upon all. To me, facial expressions and human feelings have always been a great fascination and an endless source of inspiration.
Self taught, I’ve been drawing since my very early age. I make drawings mostly using graphite, but I also use color pencil and ink.
It is with wonder and astonishment that I realize to what extent fluidity can come from the simple line of a pencil.
Drawing and oil painting are my preferred mediums. They give me the array of possibilities I’m looking for. This avenue is vital for me".
