Louise Dandurand (1955 - ) a master printmaker was born in Montreal. She attended the Graphic Program of Dawson College and after graduation in 1976, she involved herself in various art forms, developing an abiding interest in serigraphy.
With access to the Workshop of Concordia University, Louise became a self-taught silk-screen artist. Patterns created by urban site and the quietness of rural scenes are the basic components of her work.
Since beginning in 1976, she has developed a unique, recognizable style of serigraphy, or silkscreen printmaking which can realistically be compared to painting. Using up to 40 colours, Louise builds a picture, laying colour upon colour, translating it to paper until the image is complete.
With her whimsical serigraphs and the use of bright colours, she creates images of rural escapes, city neighbourhoods, and village life.
A listed Canadian artist, Louise has been published on the cover of Reader's Digest numerous times.
She has had a variety of solo and group exhibitions including the Art Expo in New York, Salon National des Galleries d'Art, Montreal and Concordia University. Some Collectors include Bell Canada, Reader's Digest Selection, Canadian Pacific and Banque Indosuez, to name a few.
She is represented by: University of Calgary Library University of British Columbia - Fine Arts Library Winnipeg Art Gallery - Clara Lander Library National Gallery of Canada - Library and Archives / Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography
