"Word on Hand "
Le mot et la main  

“A nostalgie for world of the written word,” CARON uses calligraphed and truncated word images in two languages, French and English, reflective of her two overlapping cultures.

   An artist who learned to write with pen and ink at the tender age of 5, Dominique says that while discovering the wonder of reading, writing revealed itself to be very challenging. Every word had to be seated gracefully, precisely on a line, politely spaced and never ever marred by “The Spot”, the original sin of spilled ink ... Now many years later the pain of handwriting has gone ... but where is the grace of the hand?

   Dominique believes painters often take interest in painting what is disappearing from their world. The interaction of hand, brush, or pen and paper is being replaced by digital text and typing; the idea stays, but not its trace.  She combines different mediums including paint, sand, Japanese paper, canvas, gauze and other tools such as hand made brushes, sticks, and spatulas to "leave the marks that will talk to our eyes."

   A student of the École des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux, Dominique CARON maintains a studio in San Francisco as well as in France. She is represented by several galleries in the US. Her work is being collected  in several countries.

Please join us for a soirée rendez-vous with Dominique, an evening of art and French conversation.. Bring friends and enjoy a glass of wine or two! Donations appreciated.

Soirée rendez-vous : jeudi 7 avril à 18h30
Opening Reception: Thu. April 7th, 6:30pm

   Naming the passing times:  by Dominique Caron:

    The sense of passing time has been conveyed to me not so much by studying history but through a visual revelation of the humble graffiti of ancient travellers.
    When visiting famous ancient places, such the Hadrian Villa near Rome, a Portuguese fort on the coast of Africa, the Michel Montaigne tower/study in France and Lascaux and Altamira caves, I have been deeply touched by the graffiti left on the walls by generations of past visitors. They have left their marks in names and symbols, hearts, and humble crosses traced in charcoal, colored chalk, or carved deeply in the plaster, , overlapping each other in a collective cry of, “I was here!”
    What I have seen, in this pattern of interwoven words hanging over the walls, in their haphazard testimony, was a tribute to the interactions of men, famous and obscure, all wanting to leave their mark through the inexorable passing of time.
    When I paint and draw words in a still-life, landscape, or abstract painting, I leave them as a physical trace of a thought, attached to that very instant of the creative process.
Dominique
