Don Gaconnet

I create artwork for collectors of emotion.

My artwork is especially focused on depicting emotion and the mystery of feeling. My work combines nature with elements of feminine beauty, grace, movement, and spirituality. Having engaged subjects as diverse as; Religion, Mysticism, Esoteric Christianity, and Mystical Experiences. My work produces familiar emotional content surrounded by environmental beauty that’s arranged into situationally interesting pieces.

While I use an array of archival materials and processes in each project my methodology is consistent. Even though there may not always be material similarities between the different projects they are linked by recurring formal analysis and through the subject matter.
Each project often consists of multiple works, often in a range of different media, grouped around specific themes and emotional meanings. During research and production new areas of inspiration arise and lead to the next body of work.
