Born in Rosemère, Quebec, 1959.
After obtaining a diploma in graphic design from Dawson College in Montreal, Danièle Lemieux continued her studies in art at the Westmount Visual Arts Center also in Montreal.
The artist paints still lifes in which she treats her everyday objects with the same veneration that the 17th century masters accorded to objects synonymous with wealth. The objects painted in this way are an invitation to reconsider the quiet dignity and poetry of basic forms. They symbolize the desire to reintegrate reality. His subjects, fruits, vegetables, pots, jugs, bowls, are essentially reproduced to scale, respecting in this sense the true relationship between the human and the object. His color palette is limited, the artist allowing the different tones to dominate and create drama.
His artistic eye removes the superfluous and promotes harmony and peace. Danièle Lemieux's paintings offer the observer a place where order replaces chaos, a place conducive to contemplation.
Danièle Lemieux's works have been exhibited across Canada, in Switzerland and in the United States.
