Carole Belliveau, strongly rooted in renaissance religious iconic art with gold leaf

[divider]

My Inspiration is grounded in the spirit of the natural world. My paintings depict the beautiful, ethereal, sacred and eternal as a visual counterpoint to the profane in contemporary culture.

The idealized child is a frequent symbol of this vision. Like a sprite she changes as effortlessly as a chameleon from the reality of the waking world in one moment to floating in a golden space of imagination the next. This is a magic kingdom of dreams and flowers that reflect a time of innocence, creativity and hope. My paintings of women carry that child within.

I use symbols of time passing, walls crumbling and perfectly imperfect gold leaf which tempers even the purity of youth, reminding us that each living moment is a dream of our own makingat once fleeting, yet eternal.

My work is strongly rooted in renaissance religious and iconic art with a use of real gold and silver leaf to embellish Oil and Acrylic paintings of figures.
