Helpless vulnerability.

Poppies 2008-2009 Installation (h. 10 feet)


Grande Lethe 2009 embroidery on tulle.
Jannick Deslauriers is living and working in Montreal and teaches visual arts at Marie-Victoirin College.
She was born in 1983 in Joliette,Quebec. I love her visuals about vulnerability,fragility. Poetic and it makes me a bit uncomfertable because of it's beauty and perfection or maybe because it's unreal ? I don't know.

Well,Jannick's work is a testimony to the poetry of our times.And there it comes " She expresses the helpless vulnerability we may feel when faced with the grace and beauty of created forms,which are at once disturbing and astounding" by Christiane Gauthier.

But why? Is it because we've learned at our Art Academy that beauty is not enough, it has to be more...?
Why,by whom...? Hmm, I love beautiful things so.....
