Born in Quebec City, now living and working in Montreal Canada, Martine Lemieux is inspired by her love of costumes and her passion for nature. Through her work, she’ll voyage between patterns, costumes and different cultures to create artworks that reflect the hybrid in Woman be it iconic, flat bodied or sensations of vulnerability with colors from Japan or textiles from Mexico. Martine’s work ranges from paintings and textiles to natural details, yet, retaining a fashion undertone. Martine also creates enigmatic subjects, which resemble Still Life. In her portraits and figures, she captures states unique to emotion, creating halls of dreams, melancholy and passion. According to Martine, “It has a lot to do with the eyes”. Her paintings burst with vibrancy and color while keeping their contemporary edge, thus, render a melange of elegant design.
