For over 2 years, she devote herself entirely to his art. She has a lot of sources of inspirations like performance art, history, sociological, entrepreneurial meetings and various disciplines about wild animals, dance, music. Thus, different experiences and artist studies are transposed onto her paintings.
For several years, she devoted herself to painting as her main carrier subject. Her research toward the paintings will play heavily on the idea of iconography and symbols, on the notion of a portrait. Her painting style is a graphic composition concealing merged figurative elements. The subjects refer to artistic trends such as classicism, baroque art or even, Byzantine and the abstract art.
The work of Caroline St-Pierre is to interact with people toward the canvas. The reading of her paintings is narrative by his colour schemes or arrangement of the elements in their spaces, with a contemporary touch that brings a personalized and colourful gestural, where the modulated line blends into graphic constructions.
Her intention in the artistic news is to make people travel through the history and allow the awakening of certain cognitive thoughts.
