Beatrice Dauge Kaufmann
Beatrice Dauge is a Swiss artist who resides in Montreal, working and focusing on her abstract works as a painter. Her pieces are characterized by a free, dynamic fluidity. Dauge makes a bold use of color, predominantly in the cooler tones, to which she often adds contrasting warmer tones. This visual result is evident in many of her works, such as“Being Free,” making two circular patterns the focal point of the painting, creating a strongsense of movement accompanied by dynamic dashes of whites, blues, and greens that complement the composition. Her use of movement triggers a whirlwind of emotional display for her audience. “Yin and Yang'” exhibits an alluring relation between texture, and free lining, there is a sense of structure and improvisation.
