JENNIFER LEFORT

Jennifer Lefort is a Montreal born abstract artist currently living and working in Gatineau, Ontario. Lefort’s works explore contrast, space and the use of colour through abstract painting and sculpture. She uses these elements to explore the coexistence and codependence of formalism and expressionism, color field and pattern, space within space, structure and disorder, and accidents and intuition in abstraction. These contrasting qualities take the viewer to a place of comfort and strangeness; beauty and disorder. The open-ended potential of abstraction towards meaning, narrative, and imagination is what keeps Lefort constantly searching for new outcomes. Lefort was awarded the prestigious Joseph Plaskett Foundation Award in 2005, and has since exhibited her work in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Canada and internationally. She has recently completed an artist recidency in Los Angeles, and has exciting exhibitions planned for 2017.
