Haunting memories of ancient places

A new exhibition at the Campbell River Art Gallery will feature the works of a part-time Cortes Island resident who aims to evoke haunting memories of ancient places through mixed media paintings.

Artist Catherine Tableau was born in Paris and worked in Provence for 20 years. She made the big move to Vancouver and Cortes Island in 2002.

“I discovered British Columbia and Cortes Island in 1999 and fell for its natural beauty, the immensity of its landscapes, the simplicity of island lifestyle and its people,” Tableau said.

Her new exhibition, “Mesa,” is a selection of mixed media works Tableau hopes will call to mind the earth’s raw beauty and the earth’s textures, cracks and reliefs.

Tableau hopes her paintings on wooden boards inspire the public to meditate.

“Lines and marks are like wounds, like deep scarring trenches, which then transform to pathways,” Tableau said.

Tableau has been a permanent resident of the Howe Street Gallery of Fine Art in Vancouver since 2009. Her work has been exhibited in France, on Quadra and Cortes Islands and in Vancouver.

Tableau is also deeply involved in the French jazz and avant-garde music scenes.

“Mesa” will be at the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Discovery Gallery from July 8 to Sept. 16.
