Martine Tremblay, painter
Originally from Chicoutimi, her roots are strong and well anchored in the rich soil of his native region, the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. It is from there that she delivers a very personal work of creation.
Self-taught painter, the mix between the various techniques has particularly seduced her. She extracts the best of materials and pigments, not hesitating to use different application tools to push her approach further.
Her post-impressionist figuration espouses mannerism as well as symbolism. By her creation, she wants to materialize the characters that inhabit it and sublimate the words, even the deep impression left by some texts.
As for her abstract compositions, they transport us to a path coveted by many, that of introspection, hence the importance of treating her creation differently from other creators. For the artist, freeing himself from realistic references, manipulating his lines and colors, constitute in themselves a visual language and become the center of his creation.
For more than thirty-five years, Martine Tremblay has participated in several group exhibitions and numerous symposiums, where she has received numerous mentions and awards. In 2008 two of her works were selected by the Société National des Beaux Arts de France for the exhibition at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris, she was part of the delegation of Canadian artists. She will exhibit again in France in the Alpes Maritimes in 2012. In 2015, Italy was the host of her performances. Her work can be found in various galleries in Quebec, Ontario, Saskatchewan as well as in public and private collections.
According to the artist, painting is above all a great adventure of communication and creation. Perfecting the language of visual arts through the interpretation of his perceptions is undeniably an invitation to research. I expect my artistic practice to question the observer. My objectives are to create, to constantly deepen my pictorial research, to build a work and to impose my approach.
