Marion Landry

Marion Landry's training in Design and career as a 3D Architecture Visualization Specialist inform the way she observes, organizes, and translates the pictorial plane. She obtained her BFA (2016) and an MFA (2023) from Emily Carr University of Art + Design and has participated in exhibitions across Canada and internationally since 1999. In 2022 and 2023, she was awarded the University Women's Club of Vancouver Scholarship as well as the ECU x Griffin Residency Awards (July-Aug 2023). Originally from Montreal and a Francophone, Landry currently lives and creates her work on the ancestral and unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh nations in Vancouver, BC.

"My practice is grounded in a phenomenological approach, which emphasizes an embodied experience through the process of painting. By incorporating the concept of the expanded field of painting into her practice, I create site-adjusted installations that utilize light, temperature, and traditional painting techniques to create immersive experiences. The geometrical compositions of my paintings draw upon iconic optical strategies, such as chromatic vibrations, hard-edged forms, and geometrical composition, positioning my work in dialogue with, but not defined by, the tenets of Modernist abstract. These echoes aim to open possibilities for exploring and interrogating the potentialities of abstraction"
