Marcelle Bonenfant Dube

Marcelle Bonenfant Dube was born in Metis-sur-mer, Quebec, in 1938. In 1975, she left the teaching profession to devote herself entirely to painting. Having a strong passion for history and archeology, her research has been, for the pats ten years, almost exclusively based on Man, his history, the traves he left behind, his myths and beliefs. Her study of ancient worlds has influenced the textures in her work, which often resemble ancient engravings. Another significant theme addressed by Dube is music. Through her choice of color and the bold energy of her brushstroke, the artist seeks to create an equivalent to the emotion brought upon the sonority and rhythm of a symphony. Today her work can be found in numerous public collections as well as many private collections across Canada, Europe, and the United States.
