A tumultuous childhood never dampened Linda Bluteau’s love of life and the joy and satisfaction she experienced in any creative activity. Winning awards and praise for her artistic creations even as a young girl led Bluteau to the study of graphic and dramatic art and to a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Art at the University of Laval, later adding a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology. She worked teaching art and drama for 15 years before becoming a full time artist in 1998 under the name of Bluto.
Choosing the very old, traditional, South American technique of using ground coffee as a pigment, along with her own personal recipe to create the textural base, Bluto creates richly textured, earthy, and timeless works of art which often take on the patina of solid bronze.
Her nudes, perhaps reminiscent of the work of Michelangelo or Buonarroti, are powerful in their grandeur and sensual in their line and form. Even in her still-life’s, like the tea pots that she often favours, do we find an energy and strength and the vibration of life. Through her unique chosen technique, Bluto celebrates the human form and the beauty found in the organic elements of all things around her.
