Born in Montreal, Josée Forest has found a place in renowned galleries since 2009.
Self-taught painter, passionate about bright colors and textures, she interweaves bold, unexpected and surprising hues in her subjects. The structure of the painting is the result of the artist’s intuition to defy the transparencies, depths and richness of colors. A whirlwind between the contemporary figurative and the abstract, Josée Forest captivates us by incorporating in each of her works a touch of hyper realism, a force that has characterized her since her very beginning and for which she is recognized.
Always on large canvases, she embraces us and takes us into a world of freedom by the nonchalance of her brushstrokes whose gestures are sometimes sensual, sometimes fiery. The imperfect becomes harmonious in the depth of the movement that is created, bringing strength and emotions to his creations.
Unruly emotion enriches consciousness.
His works are part of several private and corporate collections around the world, including Canada, the United States, Mexico, France, England, Japan, China and Australia.
