A recent review of my solo show at the ANKA Gallery by Richard Speer, Art Critic for Willamette Week, says :
" With ease and eclecticism, Sidonie Caron tackles the formidable task of filling the entirety of ANKA's front, middle and back exhibition spaces. Her chromatic arsenal is invigorating and varied, her technique often incorporating vigorous palette-knife work. Her abstractions crackle with energy. "
As you look through the different bodies of work displayed here you will see that I am an eclectic painter. I respond to lifes influences, my travels and my environment by making work that reflects all this.
Materials and paint have always interested me and my curiosity has always impelled me not only to try new things but also to tackle new subject matter.
Sometimes this has been triggered by commissions,both public and private, that have encouraged me to continue with a theme, but also sometimes a prolonged involvement in a particular theme has been the impetus to then paint something completely different.
My hope is that you too can respond to some aspect of my work. If so, and if you are interested in purchasing any painting please do contact me.
