Audrée Demers-Roberge captures the ever-changing colours of landscapes, from the majestic expanses of Newfoundland’s Gros Morne National Park to the Gaspé National Park and Anticosti Island. C.O.A. showcases her work in a solo exhibition, providing a glimpse into that specific moment when the beauty of Quebec’s nature reaches its pinnacle, displaying a final burst of ecstasy before gradually fading away. Audrée skillfully utilizes coloured pencils to immortalize the fleeting shades of blue and occasional mauve that snow adopts under the winter light, skillfully capturing the ephemeral essence of the scenes she explores.

Hailing from Lévis, Quebec, Canada, Audrée Demers-Roberge, a young artist, has called Quebec City home for the past years now. With a master’s degree in visual arts and her work included in the Desjardins institutional collection, she has established herself as a notable artist. The pivotal moment in her artistic journey occurred during a trip to Anticosti Island a few years ago, where the use of coloured pencil and the travel journal became the foundation of her artistic practice. Her choice of a travel journal is influenced by its convenient format and durability, allowing her to sketch and create anywhere, whether it be on a picnic table, a beach, or the edge of a “Western Brook” Pond marsh. More than just a conventional tool for drawing, the travel journal transforms into a veritable diary, evolving beyond a mere learning instrument to become the artwork itself.
