The principal medium of Marie-Josée Roy’s paintings is the aluminum plate.
Photo transfer, oil painting, grinding, cutting, are all techniques that she uses in her visual language. His purpose is personal, intimate and yet universal because it shows his passion for metal, for the human. It deals with meetings, departures, difficulties to grasp, to focus. It also testifies to its creative, feminine, solitary and universal strength. His expression is physical, point. Not final though. On the contrary. This opens up a great deal about his personality and the intrinsic nature of his expression.
She collaborates on some of her works with the artist Jerome Prieur who intervenes on his paintings through the engraving using an electric burin .. all his work is done by hand, in a unique way.
Their collaboration started in 2010 and has been going on ever since. The artist duo creates a mix of delicacy and palpable strengths. of masculine and feminine. A magic emerges from it.
