LA GACE PART EN MORCEAUX - Ice is leaving
“Charlotte Gosselin spent three months on Anticosti Island in winter 2019, drawing the series La glace part en morceaux. The artist deconstructs and reconstructs the images observed in her movements and her solitudes to reveal their sensitivity. With drawings made with ink and pencil, she explores the possibility of getting lost in movement, texture and detail. By transforming the images into an accumulation of hazardous lines, she works on the infinity of landscapes and the intimacy of everyday life.
In this serie, Charlotte Gosselin adds boxes and handwritten texts, like in comics, to give a temporal and subjective aspect to her work. The text is sometimes erased or scratched, and it is through this impulsiveness that an aesthetic develops the concept of trace. "
