Marie H. Sirois
Marie H. Sirois is a painter, photographer, musician and installation artist who has set herself a herculean project spanning the next 16 years. Her project explores the relationship between German composer Robert Schumann and his wife, virtuoso pianist Clara Wieck. While getting familiar with Schumann and Wieck’s life and compositions, she envisions an ambitious body of work that bridges painting and music. It is via four series of paintings, like a symphony in four movements, that she aspires to depict the transformation of the couple’s feelings through the important events that shaped their relationship.
