Native of Cap de la Madeleine (Quebec, Canada), Thérèse studied photography and a number of different art and craft courses. She spent a number of years searching for the “right medium” exploring her artistic talents. She expressed in watercolour for over 18 years. She specialized in painting the French Riviera. The local architecture, the small narrow streets and the scenes of every day life fascinated her. Over the last few years, she has been experimenting with acrylics on tissue paper and other exotic papers. She chose to expand her experimentation with the fragility of the tissue paper and the boldness of the acrylics. Thérèse Boisclair is an international artist, whose monolithic works thread together conceptual practices with material practices, excavating memory and lived experience in order to distil the essences of these immaterial events into translucent images that glow, vibrate, and reverberate together in unexpected and magical way. We find her works in private and public collections in many countries. She was awarded “Best of Show” in Ferrarra, Italy,(April 2012), in the exhibition Liberated Dreams held at the Estense Castle. Her abstract landscapes have been seen in numerous exhibitions in Canada, Europe and the United States.
