Having lived and worked in the far north of Scotland at Freswick Castle, the sea has played a large part in Monique Sliedrecht's painting. This is her second exhibition at Pavé d'Orsay and the margins of the world, sea and cliffs, boats and the wild coastlands of the north, continue to inspire.

Seafarer is an ancient word that expresses the loneliness and courage of the inner journey, travels of self-discovery and bright illumination. Monique, who grew up in Canada, was inspired by the recent exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Mystical Landscapes, which has now transferred to the Musée d'Orsay as Beyond the Stars.

Her work is an individual response to the theme of finding peace in nature, in the midst of a world dominated by technology, and a place of healing power in the chaos of elemental forces. Her boats are fragile vessels seeking a haven, icons of the human spirit.
