Melanie Authier was born in Montreal, where she now lives and works. An artist with an established career, her works can be found in notable public collections both national and international. The artist works without source imagery or preliminary sketches.

This work invites the viewer to explore the visual space of the painting, following the movement of the colours and shapes. While the composition hints at a landscape, it remains abstract and ephemeral. Each time you look at the work, the sense of the landscape starts to emerge but never fully forms.
