The main medium of Marie-Josée Roy sculptures is steel. She forges it, weld it, grindstone it … Always in a raw finish, which lets perceive the work of the artist with this material in an exchange between this hard and cold medium and the artist who gives life in it.
Sculpture and its spatial language,
Marie-Josée Roy’s sculptures have been taking shape over the past few years through constantly renewed challenges and by an approach that is increasingly complex, requiring ever-increasing technical mastery and a great deal of visualization. Because one of the strengths of Marie-Josée Roy resides mainly in its great capacity of observation and in its spirit of synthesis taking care of both the visible and the deductible. If its process goes through action, it is no less conceptual. However, in her, the concept originates in experimentation and experience. His sculpture frees itself from its conventional form, floats in space, taking its meaning both by the voids and the solid ones, one being at the same time the other. In short, one of the great qualities of Marie-Josée’s approach, and she is major, is that she does not define the form …
She collaborates with other different artists, notably Jeff Alarie by creating more vegetal works, Marie-Josée working on the human representation of the sculpture, while Jeff Alarie taking care of the vegetal representation: metallic roses, forged branches, etc.
She also collaborates with Martin Rondeau, in a completely different world, he is a photographer of formation and artist, therefore, their duet wants a mixed between the sculpture / 3d photo ..
and Yann Normand, who has always worked with metal, they have this common passion. They work together, in one sculpture, each their share, their strength, (the feather especially for Yann) once assembled form a unique sculptural universe, fluid.
