Loving Hearts

One-Way

For this urban art project, I invited citizens from the Municipality of Saint-Zotique to dip their feet in paint and make their mark. Each citizen who participated chose a color and walked a little while along their path. Starting wherever they wished, and getting out whenever they were ready to end their trip, so long as they never took the path of another. As we don’t in life.

Inspiring myself off their steps, I then traced the path in white to define their intertwined life lines. Together, artist and citizens, young and old, we painted in all the colors within those outlined spaces to form a vibrant representation in honor of the local community.

We interact with others on an ongoing basis, but never shall we have the exact same life experience, and often shall we be influenced by those who have come before us, by their words as well as their actions.

… we all have a one-way ticket in life…

… how we choose to live it is up to each of us…

… on our way we will ceaselessly interact with other existences…

… those presented here on this path are of the men, women, children, neighbors of the community…

… we must see and appreciate it for all the life it contains; for all the unique individuals it includes; for its simplicity, but also for its beautiful complexity.

Fruit of Empathy

This banner was created in the context of a mediation program put in place and directed by the non-profit organisations Institut pacifique and Paroles d’excluEs; a program that aided citizens from Montreal-North to voice and resolve issues in their community through a process of reconciliation.

Initiated by the cultural mediation of the Maison culturelle et communautaire de Montréal-Nord, the citizens expressed their perception of the process in artwork made with dry pastel. Inspiring myself off their individual creations, I then proposed a collective piece to represent their experiences, which we then completed together via a dialogical artistic approach.

“Fruit of Empathy”, a 5 meters high by 1.5 meter wide vinyl banner, will be installed on the façade of the Maison culturelle et communautaire de Montréal-Nord, at the entrance of the municipal library, during the summer of 2021.

Ruby Slippers

2 x 22 meters mural painted on a fence in a “green alley” in Montreal-North (entrance on Des Ardennes street) in collaboration with COOP solidaité ECONORD, Soverdi and the Montreal-North borough.

Eyeing Teamwork

In the hopes of raising awareness about Dissociative Identity Disorder, and internal multiplicity, this series of work depicts distinct personalities and dilemmas that are rarely perceived or acknowledged due – in part – to the stigma associated with the condition and with the paradigms of considering oneself as Plural.

Collect. I’ve trauma

A series of mixed-media drawings that explore the frailties of our self-hood and how we interact with similar vulnerabilities in others.

Pay Attention!

In a world united and divided by social media platform algorithms, how we perceive and represent ourselves and the Other is muddled by a cocktail of logos, emoticons and memes playing off as the far more complex counterparts they are meant to represent. This technologically-enabled context keeps us from expressing fully and in traditional contexts (face to face) the very emotions we are merely claiming to ‘feel’ at a distance ‘harmlessly’ behind our screens.

Each acrylic painting in this series is a call-to-action that exposes our passive and destructive attitudes, with titles and intended arrangements urging the viewer to move and pay attention, both on a psychological level and a physical one.

BnW

A visual parlour for those who appreciate distinctive achromatic creations. Represents an amalgam of various drawing projects. Although each piece is in a coulourless setting, the messages they convey are far from being black and white.
