After many years spent living in the countryside, Edith’s work often features fauna and flora. The Canadian artist, now based in Montreal, combines these aspects to her portraiture of strong women. Edith also draws inspiration from pop culture and mythology to give her work a surreal, almost hallucinatory aesthetic. She extends this ambitious and conceptual approach to gallery shows.
“For a recent show,” she says, “I wanted to create my own neighbourhood, my own world – paintings that are interacting with each other, telling stories.”
Her work has been exhibited across North America and Europe. Summer 2014 will see an exhibition in California.
1 Hide and seek Acrylic on wood, 9x12in
“This one is about friendship – more specifically, the friends we lose. It has a fairy tale feel to it, and something that’s very comforting to me.”
2 The animal in me Acrylic on wood, 11x14in
“This one was created for the Animal in Me Prisma artist collective group show. I guess the title says it all. This is probably my favourite at the moment. I’m just very happy with the rendering and the emotion expressed.”
