MARY MULDERRY MACISAAC
I am a Quebec-based artist and I have been developing a practice in illustration, graphic art and collage since graduating from Concordia’s Film Studies Program in 2013. After sustaining injuries and taking time off work, I shifted my focus toward collage as a means of therapeutic expression and found myself producing more regularly than ever.
In my work, I’m drawn to solving problems that I create myself. As a medium collage presents unlimited possibilities and the challenge of having to commit to gluing things down is a lesson in decisiveness. Assembling, reassembling… discerning between what to reveal or edit out is a corner I back myself into regularly. The result is my practice.
In 2018, I was featured in Centerfold Gallery’s Parts of a Whole collection
From February – March 2019, I was featured at Le Depanneur Cafe in a solo expo made up of limited edition prints and original collages.
From July 17, 2019 – July 21 2019, I had the pleasure of showcasing Ways of Dealing, a sample collection of limited edition prints and original collages at Galerie Marc Gosselin.
From November 21, 2019 – December 1, 2019, I was a featured artist in a group show with 16 other artists at Galerie Marc Gosselin under the theme “Decoupe le Paysage”.
In February 2020 I was featured in a 50 person show for NUIT BLANCHE: VERT 2020 at Galerie Marc Gosselin.
Since June 2020, my work has been included with a variety of other local art in an ongoing outdoor alleyway gallery of sorts, located in the St-Michel area of Montreal at Ruelle Verte – Le Racourcci.
From September – December 2020, I exhibited 4 pieces of artwork at Carrefour Culturel Paul-Mederic in the beautiful Charlevoix village of Baie-Saint-Paul. The show was backed by Festival Cuisine, Cinéma et Confidences, and featured multiple contemporary artists coming together to create a symbolic gathering of a bountiful harvest so heavy that it breaks the table beneath it.
