Marie-Josée Roy

Born and working in Trois Rivières, Québec and educated at the University of Québec, Marie-Joseé Roy has established herself as successful artist on the Canadian scene after first gaining popularity within Montreal’s underground art scene. Roy works as both a painter and sculptor employing metal as her primary material. She has focused her artistic approach on breathing life into this otherwise inert medium.

WOMB is a dynamic new solo exhibition presenting the latest work of multi-disciplinary artist Marie-Josée Roy. In this latest body of work, the artist explores transitions and transformations, where unlikely unions are formed. Continuing her long-lasting dialogue with metal, the acclaimed Roy plays on the strength of her chosen medium, using its permanence to depict the transitory nature of existence. Seemingly as light as a feather, her works illustrate life as movement, in the process, sculpting the genesis of mankind.

This newest series employs techniques ranging from image transfer, painting, etching, plating, welding, and engraving. Within their grey chrysalis, the artist masterfully depicts their struggle to emerge from being bound by metal, leaving behind their protective cocoons. Roy’s figures metamorphosize into magnificent metallic human-butterflies.

Should she be using the brush or the torch, Marie-Josée Roy is always sculpting life and its inner components. Is it implosion, is it explosion? Is it a cocoon, is it a womb? We wonder! But there is always a child, a blooming body, a grown up fetus bursting in joy or torment out of a stained spreading chrysalid, an egg yolk shaped womb, an ovoid prism from where her black and white creatures emerge for a new life. Most of the time the womb is splashed in faded color while the explosive birth is stylishly painted in black and white… Every gesture is a never ending delivery swallowed by the universe! - Christian Gagnon
