    About the Presenter:
    Lyse Lemieux’s interdisciplinary practice has focused primarily on drawing, sculpture and installation. Through considerations of process and materiality her work explores the space between abstraction and representation, while consistently maintaining an interest in the human figure. Originally from Ottawa, Lyse Lemieux attended the University of Ottawa from 1974 to 1976 and graduated with a BFA from the University of British-Columbia in 1978.

    She has exhibited nationally and internationally including the Canadian Cultural Centre; Rome, the Vancouver Art Gallery; Vancouver, Oakville Galleries; Toronto, Richmond Art Gallery; Richmond, BC, The Charles H. Scott Gallery; Vancouver, Trépanier-Baer Gallery in Calgary, Katzman Contemporary, Toronto; WAAP; Vancouver, SFU Gallery; Burnaby and, the Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver. Lemieux has been awarded grants from the BC Arts council, the Canada Council and is the 2017 recipient of the VIVA AWARD granted annually by the Doris and Jack Shadbolt Foundation for the visual Arts.

    To see the artist’s work:
