I am...
me: I am content to be me, with all my imperfections and strengths. I believe I am beautiful and just by the fact that I am human I am worthy and that the sacred inner spirit is strong in me as it is in all of us, if we just go into the silence and listen to it and find it... allow it to re-surface. This is why I am happy happy... sorry, did I forget to mention that I'm "living in sin" with Sol Lang :)
About my artwork
Art... I am a “glaneuse”, a gleaner… In scrap heaps of abandoned or demolished buildings, alleyways and flea markets, I find rare treasure. Garbage. Remnants of wood and metal, books, boxes, old paintings, all that have been discarded are interesting to me. | My work deals with obsolescence. Each “found” object has out-lived its time and has therefore been scrapped. Dead. I rescue and assemble them with collected items from my own past. I sense the object’s energy guiding its reincarnation to a higher purpose. Art. | These artifacts that have chosen me, tell stories of where they have been, where I have been, where I am and where I am going. Stories of passion and anger, strength and weakness, love, hate and fear. Revealing me to me.
Artists I like
Robert Rauschenberg ! Tapies ! Clavé ! Hermes ! Jasper Johns !
I am a mixed media artist who paints, creates 3D assemblages, photography, video & produces limited edition prints. Recently, I had my third book published. A graphic designer by profession, I am co-founder and partner of Crayon Design & Communication, a Montreal-based graphic design firm, with husband artist/photographer, Sol Lang.
What exhibitions are good at the moment?
gesu, Montreal Quebec, art sacré. Madonna $ Child or Re-parenting my Inner Child.
