ANNE-MARIE GIROUX | Visual Artist

Anne-Marie Giroux lives and works in Montréal. She earned her BFA from Concordia University and is a provincially and nationally awarded artist. Her practice focuses on the visual arts, although previously she worked primarily in the intersection of contemporary dance, sculpture, film and art video.

Giroux is interested in poetic expression that, beyond the specifics of pictorial or sculptural work, allows her to lay the groundwork for formal explorations. At the heart of her artistic research is her engagement in the relationship between the body, material, states of being and movement what she calls « body matter ». Prior observations through movement practices, are now pursued through painting and sculpture-installation.

She has exhibited in the cities of New York, Detroit, Montréal, Miami and Toronto. She has work in public and private collections.

« My practice focuses on creating conceptual projects through painting and sculpture-installation. I am working with traditional mediums (oil, shellac, pencil, tar, plaster, wood, etc...) as well as from recycled materials. My work is both figurative and abstract, but above all conceptual. I always work from a theme that appeals to me and will allow me to deepen my research through the creative process. 

I am interested in the poetic expression that evolves through the theme and the conceptual aspect of the project.  I am also interested in the relationship between " body, material, object, being or states of being and movement "  - what I call " body-matter ". What I try to communicate is expressed through the idea, the purpose, as well as the color, texture, and architecture of the work. And sometimes through an emotion or through a state of being or even through the title of the work.

The most important thing to me is to make sure that the work is not framed in a single perception. That way, the visitor who observes the work will have the freedom to do and live his own interpretation. »
