Galerie Old Chelsea is pleased to present new encaustic collages by Linda Girard, a mixed-media artist from the Outaouais. This show explores the personal impact that a collection of women has had on the life of the artist. It is an anecdotal collection of women, many of them Canadian, across time and space. These ‘ancestors’ revolve around Linda Girard’s thoughts and impressions, providing humour, encouragement and laying the basis for who she is as a woman. These works are collages on wood panels, both applied and layered, and with careful applications of wax and found materials.
Girard graduated with a minor in art from Queen’s University in Ontario and taught art for several years. She has been solely devoted to the exploration of mixed media and encaustic for the last few years, exhibiting at a number of solo and group shows in the Ottawa and Outaouais area.
