“In term of composition, I use a very spare, abstract and contemporary approach to form, colours and space. My conception of the painting is based on an Oriental approach. The lateral position of my signature on the edge of the painting is intentional because it is an integral part of the artistic process and stems directly from traditional ancestral practise. According to Chinese philosophy, this element of the painting is given full consideration to produce balance in the work. I create a balance between the empty (the white space) and the full spaces (the colors) (yin and yang), while infusing them into the principle of abstract art which is “all over”. – Elise Caron
