Gallery Statement for Road Trip exhibit

Travel photos, collected postcards, and well worn maps provide inspiration for Maureen Brouillette's mixed media paintings. Her recent work takes us on a ROAD TRIP through middle America yet suggests a contemporary viewpoint ripe for interpretation.

A ferris wheel hovers over a carnival midway and industrial grade yellow paint signals caution. Architectural snapshots such as these define each painting. With the layering of paint and paper, Brouillette merges reality with abstraction. She integrates elements with gestural, graffiti-like line and quiets bold color with contrasting neutral hues. The result is imagery that has both an energetic rhythm and room to breathe.

Maureen Brouillette

Duality is an important theme in my work. I like to play with the contrast between order and chaos, analytical and intuitive, and geometric and organic. The final result I strive for is a balance between reality and abstraction. I use acrylic, oil, collage and a variety of drawing tools to make my paintings. I also teach ongoing watermedia painting classes and do demonstrations, workshops, critiques and jury art exhibits.

My work was featured in Crate & Barrel catalogs and showrooms. Within a five year period I was awarded Best of Show twice in the Southwestern Watercolor Society Juried exhibit.
