Michele Poirier Mozzone‘s favourite season is definitely summer. In her oil, pastel and acrylic paintings, Mozzone is able to encapsulate the essence of this season. Carefreeness and lightness live in her subjects, often children, teenagers and families, captured as they interact with the water and bask in the brightness of the sunlight. Growing up near the coast, Michele was drawn to the changing patterns and colours of the ocean and the captivating effects of sunlight reflecting off the surface of the water. These natural wonders became the foundation of her artistic expression and she embarked on a creative exploration that led her to create her distinctive series.
Her brushwork exudes a sense of fluidity and movement, evoking the gentle ripples of water and the play of light on the skin. The figures in her artwork appear to be in a state of serenity, as if immersed in a meditative trance brought on by the rhythmic sounds of water and the warm caress of sunlight. The interplay of light and shadow is a hallmark of Mozzone’s work, and she uses this contrast to convey depth and emotion. The sunlight dances on the water’s surface, casting mesmerizing reflections and creating a visual symphony of colors that seem to shift with every passing moment. This ephemeral quality lends a dreamlike atmosphere to her paintings, inviting viewers to lose themselves in the tranquil scenes she portrays.
In a fast-paced world, where serenity is often elusive, Michele Poirier Mozzone’s artwork serves as a gentle reminder to appreciate the fleeting moments of beauty found in the interplay of water and sunlight. Through her art, she invites us to pause, immerse ourselves in the tranquility of her compositions, and experience the captivating harmony of humanity and nature.
