New York based artist Gaetanne Lavoie experiments with conveying emotional and mental conflict in her figurative oil paintings. Many of her works depict vibrant and whimsical scenes, while also exuding a certain somberness and yearning. In her statement, she writes, “Through my experiences, I have realized how important the contradictions are… Within the perceived ‘negative’ emotional state of being is beauty, to which the contradictions no longer fight against each other, but rather, work in harmony creating a most delectable state of being.”
