Eddy Arsenault INSTINCT OF IMAGINATION Collection on Display at the Assumption Gallery
Moncton, – Assumption Life welcomes to its Assumption Gallery the works of painter Eddy Arsenault. This November and December, the New Brunswick artist will be showing eight canvasses in an exhibit entitled Instinct of Imagination.
“The goal of my exhibit is to open visitors’ minds. Of course I have my own definition of what a work of art should be, but I always strive to give visitors a chance to form their own opinion and make their own judgments about my work,” Eddy Arsenault said.
In order to do so, the artist paints complex works with bizarre shapes, as well as small images of the objects that make up our daily lives. “I paint in oils. The technique is easy to work with and I prefer it. My concepts start out as sketches; I then work on them until I eventually come up with a final design,” Eddy continued.
He has been drawing and painting since he was very young. After high school and college, he began painting large works and immense murals. Over the years, he has donated works to charity and sold others to interested collectors. Today, he prefers creating paintings based on action and imagination.
“The message of Instinct of Imagination is that the imagination can bring to life a different world…a world of imagination,” Eddy Arsenault explained. “And if you open your mind to this world of imagination, you will feel your sense of creativity blossom. In my opinion, imagination makes the world go round!”
Mr. Arsenault feels that it is important for art lovers to take on (discover) his paintings one at a time, separately. “Each canvas was created at a different period of my life. Each one has a different meaning. Therefore, it’s important to look at my exhibit one canvas at a time,” Eddy said in conclusion.
The artist does, however, want visitors to take away from his works an impression of uniqueness. Despite his various artistic inspirations, Eddy Arsenault tries to emphasize his own style. That is exactly what Instinct of Imagination suggests.
