Marie-Eve Proteau works with unconventional materials which abolish the distinction between the pictural and the sculptural. She works with some old retro televisions and gives life back to them by becoming the medium of a representation forever motionless. Some paintings on canvas are also made with this concept and most recently some special series of paintings. A feminine theme prevails in her work in the form of surrealist portraits where the emotions are drawn from the complexity of a relationship between two people; expectation, worry, obsession, secret, domination. The translucent textures are in contradiction with some more disturbing and darker allusions. Her works has been exhibited in Canada, United States, Japan and Switzerland.
