WOMEN IN FASHION

INTERVIEW WITH ARTIST RENEE GOUIN

I’m inspired by an array of aesthetics including the spare flatness of Japanese woodblock prints and the reductive visual vocabulary of Morandi. My most recent work is influenced by the color palettes and ambiguous spacial effects found in fashion photography. By emphasizing these flat abstract forms, I embrace the playful antics of cubism. I make monotype prints that strive to celebrate women’s relationship with clothes. My interest is to bring an awareness to the daily ritual of dressing and accessorizing, while pursuing my delight in form and color.

Amazing dusty pastels colour hues, flat texture, and elegant form give a unique visual style to these inspirational monotype artworks. 

QUESTION 1

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
