Featured Artist: Paris Souffrant
Paris Souffrant is a Brooklyn Native with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting and Drawing from SUNY Purchase College. Her unique work combines the mediums of oil paint and embroidery on canvas. Paris’ themes reference her Haitian and Jamaican heritage as well as universal ideas of language, color, movement, sound, and culture.
Paris received early dance training at Purelements an Evolution in Dance as well as Deeply Rooted Dance Theatre. Through studying numerous styles and techniques her understanding of the human body translates into her paintings. Her varied artistic background intertwines allowing movement and rhythm to play a fundamental role in her creative process. The use of repetition and pattern found within her work not only connects dance to painting but creates an understanding of language, merging the two art forms. With such overlapping Paris hopes to inspire all, thus evoking their creativity within.
