Cantin, Rose

Cantin, Rose

Born in 1988 on the south shore of Quebec City, Rose Cantin now lives and works in Limoilou, Quebec. She received her industrial design degree in 2009, and shortly after, travelled to South East Asia. Upon her return, she created a jewellery and accessories brand that she operated until 2015. Besides her personal projects, she also participated in many other artistic projects as part of an art collective. Throughout her many adventures, and despite her achievements, painting has always remained her primary passion.

She describes her art: “My intention is not to prescribe to an ideal of perfection, I simply desire to convey a strong energy and exciting vibrancy. I create my pieces in a state of complete spiritual indulgence with an appreciation for the imperfections that emerge from such a mindset. I am fascinated by the impulsive and intuitive use of paint in relation with movement, and the notion that I have little control over the finished product, bestowing the creative process with a fragility that is crucial to my appreciation of it. Every splash of paint amazes me, unique and impossible to recreate, the result of spontaneity and freedom with each application. The resulting piece is a collage of absent mindedness. I have no interest in recreating what I have already seen. I do not intend to create art which is reflective of a vision, an opinion, judgements or descriptive of an era. I simply wish to convey a feeling, a moment birthed from an eruption of raw emotion, passion and liberty.”
