Marie-Claude Bouthillier’s interdisciplinary art practice takes the form of paintings, drawings, pictorial environments and collaborative works. Since the late 80s, her work can be seen regularly in solo and group exhibitions in Quebec and abroad, and in particular, as part of major group projects at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. Throughout her career, an exploration in painting of the conceptual space between text and textile – a complex interplay between words and forms – has been a constant thread in her pictorial research. She also exlores the representation of artist in litterature. Marie-Claude Bouthillier won the Louis-Comtois Award in 2011 and the Ozias Leduc Award in 2013. She holds an MFA from Université du Québec à Montréal (1997). She lives and works in Montreal.
