DOMINIQUE NORMAND - True Spirit of the Canadian North

Canadian Metis Artist Dominique Normand

In painterly manners, she translates in images, the omnipresent powers that imprint and shape the world of human experience in the heart of the Northern territories. Since 2008, she has visited, lived and built strong ties with the Cree people of James Bay. The sum of these precious encounters and the teachings she has thus received constitute an everlasting reservoir of powerful inspiration for her creation. Enriched by her own experience amongst the Cree communities and her own life awareness revelations, she becomes a witness to the entwined harmony of all our relations, a spokeswoman bearing a camera, armed with a brush, painting, documenting video. A mystic universe is born on canvas, revealing the fascination she feels for the land and the territories that posses her. Magic works both ways! Dominique stands out for her strong visually evocative works, her holistic and sensitive vision of the worlds around her.

She has participated in several solo and group exhibitions, such as, International Kite Festival in Dieppe, Normandie, Galerie Richelieu in Montreal, Klus’Kap in Moncton, New Brunswick, Broadway Gallery in New York, Westin Hotel in Los Angeles, Galerie Soutana and Jardin d’Hiver in Mont Tremblant Manifest'Art in St-Adolphe and other galleries in the Laurentians.
