From October 1 to 31, The Art House Cafe is proud to host collage artist Rebecca Clouâtre's first solo exhibition, Creatures of Whimsy.

The vernissage will take place on October 11 at 7 pm, coinciding with a live show: daniel couper and Ben Wright at The Art House Café. couper's single «Luna» features one of Rebecca's collages on the cover.

In her first solo exhibition, Rebecca Clouâtre has brought together recent works that highlight a variety of themes and concepts in her art practice. While playing with scale and balance, her handcut paper collages aim to encourage viewers to contemplate the intricacies of nature and our complex relationships with it. The importance of human connection, the breaking down of hierarchies, and a focus on a holistic world view frequently influence Clouâtre’s creative process.
Clouâtre is an emerging collage artist based in Ottawa, Ontario. In 2015 she received a Masters degree in Art History from Carleton University, with a concentration in Art Exhibition and Curatorial Studies. Her collage work amalgamates a variety of imagery, including vintage, black and white photographs and pictures from the natural world. Inspired by natural history illustration from the 1800s and Surrealism, Clouâtre aims to create whimsical scenes that invite viewers into her built dreamscapes. With the intention of bringing attention to tangible objects that have otherwise been discarded or forgotten about, most of Clouâtre’s imagery is sourced from a variety of paper-based paraphernalia – such as magazines and books – which have been scavenged from used bookstores, yard sales and thrift shops.
