The Art of Den Poitras: Mystery, Beauty and Fun.

‘Unity through diversity’ is one of the themes underlying my art. Disparate found objects are brought together in my handmade shadow boxes. Everything's assembled and primed, then the background is painted. The stage could be set in outer space, at the seaside, under a blue sky, or in any corner of the universe. The meticulous detailing of found objects in the foreground completes the narrative. Somehow this self-discovered technique sparks my creative process and helps me to bypass my conscious mind. A deeper source is called upon to bring all the elements together with a sense of mystery and beauty. Pre-planning is thrown out the window, as it would spoil the fun!

The word matter, taken from mater, means mother. The great universal ‘mother’ vibration is the source, also known in physics as the unified field of energy. This concept has been echoed by Native Americans who believe that “everything is sacred, everything has a spirit”. Applying this concept to my work, all forms are significant in the composition. It's my job as the artist to reach the viewer’s intuition and imagination and to help them experience this concept.

I've been exploring art since the age of five; it's what got me through the school system of the '50s & '60s. The entire universe is all about the expression of creative intelligence and the energy of unconditional love which permeates existence. As you ponder my art, let your heart be your guide. Let it awaken your sense of awe, and don't set aside your sense of humor. Most of my stuff is downright funny.
