Bettina Forget is a visual artist living and working in Montreal, Quebec. Born in Germany, she has studied art at Central St-Martins School of Art in London, England and at Curtin University in Perth, Australia and Singapore.
Bettina's work focuses on the subject of astronomy, establishing a link between art and science. Pushing traditional painting techniques to their limits, she subjects her canvases to being frozen into ice, pummeled by rain and scorched by fire. She also invented a technique of cutting holes into stretched canvas and suspending smaller pieces of canvas in the voids, therefore turning paintings into three-dimensional objects.
Bettina is Director of Exhibitions of the International Association of Astronomical Artists (IAAA) and Vice-President of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (RASC) Montreal Centre.
