Isabelle Guimond constructs her relationship to the world in correlation with her pictorial thought. Using what she calls micro-contexts, she develops large-scale paintings in which meticulously painted images are outlined against shaded blends of bright colours to then be intermingled in a garish and trash manner. For the exhibition Rêve, Baby, Rêve!, she explored the streets of the Hochelaga neighbourhood to seek out the motifs for her paintings. She pays particular attention to what survives, what is left behind, and borderline situations.
