Characters Sculpture

Sculptures made by Louise Parenteau :

“Ever concerned politically and socially, I use only recycled material. With pieces of scrap, bits of metal, chunks of wood found here and there on the streets and back-alleys of the city, used cloth, worn leather, old tools and nails, etc…. I create characters whose mixed structure gives free rein to the interpretation and the composition.
These materials question me; original and exclusive, they invoke the misery, suffering, distress and the joy they have known. I respect them in their integrity and I give them a new role to play. They become the support of my worries about the problems of our society.

With minimal treatment and expense, I improvise, assemble, and construct using materials which defy me, question me, inspire me and stimulate my creation.
My art is distinctive; an art which is raw and actual, without reference and without a particular technique.”
