Louise Laplante

Biography is an interesting word and can mean many things, from chronological history, a series of significant “impact” dates or events to a more free flow blend of the past and its relevancy to the present. 

Personally, my history is heavily affected by my status as a second generation American of French Canadian descent growing up close to the Quebec border.  The easy passage from “old world” to “new world” is unique to those in states abutting the “old country” and results in the blending of the old and new. 

As an artist, this blending of old world and new, history and present, gradually became the wellspring for my work which mines it, recognizing its’ relevance to the present and its richness in imagery. 

 

Professionally, I started to actively exhibit my work in the 1980’s, joining a co-op gallery in New York and exhibiting in galleries in New England and shows around the country.
