 About Eve  Méthot 

I am a freelance artist. My tools are photography, digital design and Augmented Realtiy. I worked for 20 years as a teacher in digital design and multimedia in Quebec, Canada. In July 2020, I took part of an international exhibition in Vienna about Augmented reality. 

In 2020/21, I created a cycle of twenty digital artworks made from my original images, 2D animations, photos and images from Public Domain sources (NASA). I’m interested by the universe, the celestial bodies and the nebulae. This cycle represents nebulae. Looking at these celestial objects, you can imagine all kind of forms moving through an abstract universe. Under the artist's eye, fluidity is found in the movement of lines, colors and shapes that attract and repel.

Eve_Methot_Two_women_Cone_Nebula_categories_women.jpg

First creation is linked with categorie for women. Called Two women looking at Cone Nebula. American cartoonist William Ely Hill published "My Wife and My Mother-in-Law" in Puck, an American humour magazine, on 6 November 1915, with the caption "They are both in this picture — Find them". The oldest known form of this image is an 1888 German postcard. In 1930 Edwin Boring introduced the figure to psychologists in a paper titled "A new ambiguous figure"... You can see an old woman or a young one depending on your age or state of mind. Today we can imagine these ladies near the Cone Nebula in the constellation of Monoceros. This object was discovered by William Herschel on December 26, 1785.

The second creation is linked with the theme: ART in Covid 19. Called Between hope and despair: INSTABILITY AND PRECARIOUSNESS into the Eagle nebula's Pillars of Creation. In astronomy, the Pillars of Creation refer to a famous image of columns of interstellar dust taken on April 1, 1995 by the Hubble Space Telescope. The structure is located in the Eagle Nebula, in the heart of the open cluster M16, they would have been destroyed by the explosion of a supernova about 6000 years ago2. Despair, hope, longevity, perpetuation: Humanity can recognize itself in this environment. it is a good balance to face precariousness and instability.
