Émilie Léger’s artistic approach is first and foremost a search for an amalgam of creative techniques following literary studies, a long artistic practice in digital and an exploration of traditional creation.
Image transfer is a base technique which she uses in many of her works. This technique represents what she describes as “controlled coincidence”. Controlled coincidence consists in obtaining a relatively predictable technical result that she can juxtapose with a variety of traditional techniques that will reveal a sought-after work of textures and contrasts.
In addition, her actual research intention is to identify and deepen links between text and pictural as well as visual elements. Émilie works on analyzing and examining specific functions of every textual and plastic element in the reading process of every artwork she creates.
She has recently been admitted in the Faculty of Arts at UQAM. She is currently working on a daily art journal in which she pursues her experiments with text and image in addition to her regular production of artworks on wood panels.
