Michèle F. Bérard est une jeune artiste montréalaise de la relève, oeuvrant dans le domaine de la peinture et du collage.

 MFB utilise la peinture et le collage pour s'adonner au voyeurisme. A l'aide d'une collection de photographies vernaculaires, elle scrupte les domiciles étrangers afin de trouver des narrations qu'elle pourrait s'approprier. 

MFB travaille présentement a Montréal.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

MFB is an emerging Montreal-based artist currently working in the field of painting and collage.

These paintings explore the desire to observe and possess a narrative that isn’t rightfully mine. Through the collection of found objects and images, the core of my work manifests itself as collage. Working from these assemblages, painting allows me to challenge the local narratives and relationships found amidst the fragmented images. What was impersonal now becomes a conflict of gesture and shape. Using thick paint application and washes, the medium speaks of a residual tension between the initial narrative and its redefinition. The merging of forms, textures, colours and shapes reveal the complexities of a discomforting environment and result in a visual collection of domestic scenes evoking a sense of mutable time.  

MFB is now working in Montreal.
