Turbulence by Brigitte Desautels | Artscope Magazine
art: Turbulence
artist: Brigitte Desautels
medium: collage, ink and mixed media

I was born in France and the views and images of my life there are continually in my mind. This piece was created simply by instinct during a time of turbulence and depicts vague memories and melancholy. As you look at this collage imagine Saint Saturnin, the village in France where I spent my summers as a child. This most incredible little village with narrow winding streets and alleys, and a massive castle on its highest point is my source.
