Pascale brings a new meaning to light and shade in paintings
This month from Thursday 8th October and running for two weeks, Pascale Boulle is exhibiting her "In Perception" Art at the LOSTSpace Gallery in Darlinghurst, Sydney.
LOSTSpace Gallery is relatively new, having officially opened on 20 February 2015. The gallery is proud to be Sydney's premier LGBTIQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex Questioning) Gallery dedicated to creative art, supporting adult content, unconventional themes and mature culture discussions. The gallery has regular rotating exhibitions which include performances and screenings and also offer a range of fun and social art based classes from life drawing to digital photography. LOSTSpace Gallery is supported by Inurban Properties.
Born in France and graduating from the Ecole des Beaux Arts, Bordeaux, Pascale originally worked in Paris before coming to Sydney Australia in 1989, where she is now based. Her work has also been shown with Arthur Boyd at Wagner Gallery and she has participated in several group exhibitions as well as a solo show at Alliance Française in Sydney.
Originally working with ink on paper and acrylic on canvas, Pascale turned her talent to working with oils on canvas as her medium. Once asked what inspires her, Pascale said "Australia inspires me" and that is evident in the intrinsic depth of colour, dimension and clarity of her work. It is one thing to paint; however it is another to produce an x-ray effect and three-dimension of nature and man-made structures in the way Pascale sees them.
Seeing beauty in art can be as easily as walking through a hundred year-old park
Pascale's use of colour expands your mind to look at nature in a different way. For example looking at the strength and texture of a 100 year old tree, you become the tree from the inside out, you feel its growth, its age and the years of affect the weather had in contributing to its development; basically you lose yourself within the painting to become the painting.

Colour and light contributes immensely in her work with abstract contours drawing you into the core of her paintings. There are no constraints in Pascale's work, only expansions and free flowing freedom as her art comes alive with each brush stroke.

The "In Perception" Exhibition compliments the very visual way she portrays her inspiration of Australia's environment and the meaning of nature down-under, which is vastly different from her homeland of France and other countries' backdrops. This is an exhibition not to be missed with the opening night on Thursday 8th October 2015. The exhibition runs for two weeks until Saturday 24th October. Her paintings are available for purchase at the gallery.
