Noelle Lalonde is a painter's painter. She approaches the canvas without preconceived notions and allows the process to guide her through the painting. In her most recent works she uses flora and fauna as her base or jumping off point then "takes the plunge" and immerses herself in the development of the painting as it occurs, responding to every mark with a keenly developed improvisational style. Lalonde relishes the pure colour and movement of paint on the surface. She "listens" to the paint. She has worked out her own visual language through years of experimentation and exploration. While reference based, Lalonde has a multidimensional aspect to her work, objects are analyzed, broken up and reformed.  These are sophisticated paintings with a keen sense of color, gesture and division of space. Like a tangle of vines her paintings invite you to travel through them and explore the sensations that arise from the colours and forms. In an era when figuration, animal and flower painting have but few sturdy adherents, Lalonde follows her inclinations. She clearly enjoys creating an individual capture of light within the paintings, its source, its play on the subjects, its push and pull into near shadow. The outside world has made an appearance inside and has truly has a life of its own.


Lalonde is an emerging artist and a recent graduate of the Drawing and Painting program at OCAD University. She is represented by Muse Gallery in Toronto and is currently living and working in Guelph ON.
