Cette peinture incarne l’essence de l’approche de Beth Stuart. Pour elle, les enjeux de la peinture sont le pli et le repli de la forme et du fond, la relation incertaine aux espaces réels et imaginés et l’exploration du cadre, ou du bord, de la surface peinte. Comme ses autres œuvres, cette peinture défie l’observateur de trouver l’équilibre entre l’élégance et la gaucherie : un compromis entre les réalités physiques du corps et la quête de l’abstraction authentique.

Beth Stuart makes paintings, sculptures, and texts. Her works probe into a very physical abstraction, something body-like that feels simultaneously intimate and alien, particular and uncertain. Her visual vocabulary has developed over time through research into early feminist art, textiles, early modernist painting, and surrealist philosophy.

Stuart lives and works in Toronto, and exhibits both nationally and internationally. She holds a BFA from Concordia University in Montreal, and an MFA from the University of Guelph. Recent solo exhibitions include what bonds are these? at La Centrale, two sticks in a shed at Battat Contemporary, both in Montreal, and The Cliques at Erin Stump Projects in Toronto. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards including a recent Honourable Mention in the RBC Canadian Painting Competition. Her work has been collected by the Royal Bank of Canada, and is held in numerous private collections across the country. Stuart is currently an instructor at OCAD University.
