Biography

Art teacher at the University of Quebec at Trois Rivieres, Danielle Julien came back mainly to painting and drawing for the pleasure to express herself. Her creative process is intuitive and spontaneous. She proceeds with an application of successive superposition which highlights the depth of the material and suggests a space-time, between the pigment and the air.

The symbolism of forms and the fragility of the line, is reflected in the balance of power and force between the components of the work. It is a universe of shadow and light, signs and matter, abstraction and symbol, conscious and unconscious.

Much of her reflection attempts to harmonize the complexity of the human being, a part of animality that inhabits it and its environment. Danielle Julien wonders about limits, connections, duality and respect for what surrounds us. It pushes her towards a greater awareness of man, his existence and the traces left in his path. Her pictorial medium is a territory, a place inhabited by an imaginary pictogram that frequents a journey in search of the essential and a balance.

Since 1983, she has had numerous solo and group exhibitions along with a teaching career at the Université du Québec and Colleges in Shawinigan and Moncton NB. Her works have taken place in Canadian galleries (Toronto, Montréal, Ottawa, Québec city, Baie St-Paul and Trois-Rivières) and in Europe (France and Sweden). Some of them have been acquired by Collections like Loto Québec and the City of Trois-Rivières. She is the founder and director of the multidisciplinary workshop De la Factrie au dessin, I pursue my artistic practice mainly in the fields of drawing and painting.
