About

Hello!

My name is Maryse Lemieux. I am a self-taught artist based in Gatineau, Quebec.

I specialize in the geometric abstract on canvas. I lean toward abstract modernist and cubist styles. Nature's colors and  chaos fascinate me. My paintings represent my longing for great spaces and grand scenery. It is up to the viewer's imagination to reconstruct the deconstructed scene from the evocative titles. 

I paint with a knife to create peaks and valleys on the canvas. I let myself be carried away by instinct. Texture and colors guide me in creation.

Come jump in my imagination overflowing with landscapes and magic moments!


About me

I paint mainly with acrylic and gel on canvas. I use a very thick gel that mixes with pigmented acrylic to create this rich and creamy texture that I like to compare to cake glazing. My favorite tool is the knife. Applying this thick mixture on the canvas to create peaks and valleys is strangely satisfactory!

I have always cultivated my artistic side. My first love is photography. This medium forces me see the world through the lens to find beauty where some would not see it. Photography has forged my understanding of composition, shapes and colors. When I started painting, instinctively, I knew where to give my knife shots.
