Statement from the Artist:

“When the Light Goes Out” is when  our last hope fades away. It’s about the insecurities that inhabit us. The light goes out, and we are left with nothing but the darkness…

In this new body of work, I’m exploring, through the eyes of different women 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 ourself try to forget and try to bury. This exhibition explores a grim theme but it is also about trying to overcome our issues, learning to live with that darkness, accepting our fragilities, and ultimately emerging stronger. This is my most intimate body of work yet.

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 and intricately pairs them with fauna and flora elements that are facing their own insecurities. She draws inspiration from her own experiences as well as from nature, pop culture, movies, music videos, fairytales and various mythologies. Her works has been exhibited in Montreal, Berlin, Rome, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco and New York among other cities.
