Through their intimate nature, the paintings of Laurence Pilon have the ability to suspend desires of perfection and grandeur. Her works reveal a poetic merging of personal archeology, the everyday experience, and traces of history. The artist’s recent works reveal a sensitive vision of the world where the future contains intensified uncertainties.
