“Tout a déjà été dit ou fait, mais pas par moi.”(Gilles Vigneault)

… et il a raison, Gilou, car j’ai repensé à son affirmation lorsque je suis tombée sur l’art coloré de Miss Erin Hanson… 🙂 Elle a été reconnue comme l’inventeur de ce style qu’elle appelle “impressionnisme ouvert”, expliquant que “la peinture impressionniste ouverte est aveugle aux règles de l’impressionnisme traditionnel, en adoptant une approche plus ‘esthétique et ouverte’, où l’artiste essaie de tremper dans les formes abstraites fondamentales du paysage à un niveau plus primitif.” Dans ses ouvres, elle transforme la beauté du monde réel en images superbes, aux nuances vives et aux coups de pinceau épais, créant une réalité fantastique avec des couleurs et des textures expressives… j’aime bien ses arbres, qui ont l’air vivants, en mouvement, leur lumière dorée se détache dans des oranges et des rouges éblouissants, dont les ombres déformées se reflètent à travers le ciel et sur l’herbe. Chaque tableau est une preuve concrète de sa passion pour le plein-air, et en particulier pour les parcs nationaux: Zion, le canyon de Chelly, Monument Valley, Paso Robles, Joshua Tree NP, Borrego desert…

Gilles is right, as I did recall his statement when I came across Miss Erin Hanson’s colorful art… 🙂 She’s been credited as the inventor of this style that she calls ‘open-impressionism’, explaining that “open impressionistic painting is blind to the rules of traditional impressionism, taking a more ‘colorist and open’ approach, with the artist attempting to soak in the basic abstract shapes of the landscape on a more primal level.” Through her work, she transforms the beauty of the real world into magical sceneries, using bold shades and thick brushstrokes, creating an imaginative reality with expressive colors and textures… I like her trees, as they seem to be alive with movement, their golden light stands out in bright oranges and reds, whose distorted shadows are reflected over the sky and the grass. Each painting is an obvious representation of the her passion for the outdoors, and especially for the national parks: Zion, Chelly canyon, Monument Valley, Paso Robles, Joshua Tree N-P, Borrego desert…
