About Angelique Lafreniere

Canadian Artist in Ontario,

What I do: Visual Artist, Digital Installation, Art Theory, Integrated Art, and Literature.

Angelique's paintings are an expressive interpretation of landscapes experienced directly from life. These new images that she has been conceptualizing and deeply exploring are the visual phenomenon of human/environmental interaction. These paintings express the artist's experience of witnessing this interaction that has taken place within a land of abstraction. Inner and outer landscapes are represented in her works. Paintings are like artifacts of this interaction between the artist and her inner and outer environment. There is a witnessing of the environmental experience of human interaction recorded in the layers of her paintings.

Education

OCAD - 2007

Central Tech Arts - 1995
Angelique is an Ontario based artist. She obtained her BFA from OCAD in 2007. That same year Angelique with six other young Canadian artists took part in an artist-run centre called "The collective 7" in Kensington Market.

Angelique has worked on several sears: Transparent Childhood Memories, Carnival, Myths and Legends and currently is working on Canadian Landscape ...

In 2011 Angelique and her husband moved to Woodstock, Ont. where she works from her studio and is raising her family. And in 2015 they moved to Aylmer, Ont. At the moment she is enveloped in a new series of works that involve human/environment interaction. Extreme abstraction is the major motivation in her work. Playing with color and shapes she pushes her work to the limits of abstraction. Her current influence is Emily Carr, Tom Thomson. and Lawren Harris among others. Angelique works speak to anyone that is concerned with the destruction of land and change in weather patterns.
