Luce Meunier explores and challenges the limits of painting to create new pictorial experiences, whilst remaining dedicated to simplicity in her materials. Meunier creates her own devices to manipulate matter, constantly experimenting with materials and devising new application processes. The results of this experimentation highlight her thoughtful research into her tools and materials as well as her intricate and patient studio work. Marked by flow and movement, Meunier’s colourful, textured works exhibit the poetic fluctuation of time.
Born in 1973, Luce Meunier lives and works in Montreal. Her notable exhibitions include a retrospective exhibition of her work at the Maison de la culture Claude-Léveillée (Montreal), solo shows at Christie Contemporary (Toronto), Centre CLARK (Montreal), and Bradley Ertaskiran (Montreal), and group exhibitions at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal (Montreal), the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (Toronto), and Galerie Karsh-Masson (Ottawa), among others. Meunier’s work can be found in various private and institutional collections including the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (Quebec City), the National Bank of Canada Collection, and the Bibliothèque et Archives Nationales du Québec Collection (Montreal).
