Studio Shots: Viviane Le Courtois, RedLine

Diminutive and soft-spoken, with black owl-eye glasses and long, wavy dark hair, Viviane Le Courtois is one of those "still waters run deep" types, whose mind, you just know, is working overtime, all the time. Viviane is a thinker and an observer: There's a bit of a scientist in this artist, whose work often deals with how wasteful we are and what we leave behind. Fruit parings, shredded junk mail, worn shoes, dried mushrooms, junk food and holey socks -- these are just of few of the unusual mediums with which she works.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
