Born in Brittany, was originally an architect. She is used to crafting and building layers which is represented in her collections. Touch and feel are intrinsically important in Dominique’s work, in both her canvas pieces and her sculptures. She admits that her art is akin to a DIY project; through her fingers, she pours emotion onto the canvas. The soil, the paper, the paste give energy and depth to her art.
The skewed features of her subjects reflect the brutality and emptiness of the world. People unable to live fulfilling lives, frightened by what they see and also by what is missing. The texture of her art allows her to reimagine the world – torn, glued, uneven, messy. In this chaos there is despair, rage and helplessness but also flashes of hope and happiness.
Taking inspiration from everyday life and from personal memories, her work treads a fine line of emotion and abstraction and is uniquely identifiable through the materials she uses to create.
