About the Artist:
Edith Lebeau is a Canadian artist based on the north shore of Montreal, Quebec. She spends most of her time painting in her studio with her Evil cat named Jack. For some time, Lebeau lived in the countryside, surrounded by fields, forest and a distant horizon line. Lebeau tells stories through the portraits that she creates. She paints strong female figures intricately paired with fauna and flora elements that are facing their own insecurities.
In her newest body of work she is exploring through the eyes of different woman characters, the various fears and dark emotions that we have in the deepest recesses of our mind. These women are left alone with these feelings and fears that we ourselves try to forget and try to bury.
She draws inspiration from her own experiences as well as from nature, pop culture, movies, music videos, fairy tales and various mythologies. Her works has been exhibited in Montreal, Berlin, Rome, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and New York among other cities.
About the Painting:
(In the Artist’s Own Words)
“I wanted to do a continuation of my most recent body of work, inspired by fears, dark emotions and learning to live with that darkness, accepting our fragilities and ultimately emerging stronger.
This piece, for me, is about the point where you want to step outside of your confort zone, your coccoon, but are not necessarily ready to take that step. You are very close to it, but not exactly there.”
