Louise Marois was born in Montreal where she trained as a graphic designer.
She now lives in Estrie, in Saint-Venant-de-Paquette. Her first collection, La peau des yeux, received the Jacqueline-Déry-Mochon Prize in 2004. La cuisine mortuaire and D’une caresse patentée are finalists for the Governor General’s Literary Awards – Poetry category, in 2019 and 2020. Today, she devotes herself entirely to the art of drawing and writing.
This exhibition offers two separate sections of graphite drawings on paper, one on mushrooms and a second on various plants.
Ecological concern is at the center of this new corpus, the artist inviting the visitor to wonder about what awaits us in the near future.
The artist would like to warmly thank the Massawippi foundation as well as La Cie Vilandré for their welcome and their dynamism.
