Eglantine Lavogez
joins us

The Print Atelier is enthused to present Eglantine Lavogez and her diptych series titled "Getting Closer".

Eglantine Lavogez is a young photographer based in Paris. Her vision is characterized by a search of daily aesthetic and harmony to be found through her immediate environment.  As so many before her, she wonders around town, searching for an element or a structure that will catch her eye and push her to stop.

Photography allows her to get away from a confined universe and to create her own rules. The strength of her photographs resides in their spontaneity : nothing is forced, nothing is reflexive, everything is about instinct and the present moment.

"I  take  photos  for  the  aesthetic  pleasure,  it  feeds  my  graphic  view  of  the  world,  I  don’t  do  it  to  document. [...] Playing  with  colors  and  materials,  I  try  to  put  my  focus  on  detail,  cut  to  the  essential  and  give  relief  to  heaviness.  After  all,  who  says  we  can’t  find  excitement  in  the  boredom  of  routine?"

Two great series by
Alana Riley

The Print Atelier is honoured to present in collaboration with Joyce Yahouda Gallery, 2 spectacular series by Alana Riley.

In her self-portraits titled, "Support System" and "The Pressure between you and me is enough to take a picture", Alana uses unpredictable human encounters as part of her photographic process.

Alana Riley is a photo/video-based artist, currently living in Montreal, Canada. She holds a B.F.A. from Concordia University in Montreal and an M.F.A. from the Roski School of Fine Arts at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. Riley’s work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Canada, the United States, Europe and China.

In 2010, Riley was awarded the Pierre-Ayot Prize by the City of Montreal and the Association of Contemporary Art Galleries (AGAC), as well as being nominated as a finalist of the Emerging Photographers of Canada by the Magenta Foundation. Riley has participated in artist residencies in Quebec, Ireland and Germany. Alana Riley’s work is represented by Joyce Yahouda Gallery and her works are also available through The Print Atelier.

"The Pressure between you and me is enough to take a picture"

For this series, the artist entered stangers’ work environments and asked to take a photo with them, with the shutter-release cord placed between their bodies. The photo was therefore taken at the moment of closest physical contact.

"Support System"

For this series, Riley invited strangers passing by her studio in downtown Montreal to come up and lie on top of her, for the duration of a shooting sequence of a medium-format roll of film of 10 frames. One image was chosen as the final portrait.


New works by
Guillaume Hébert

We are excited to launch a new series by Guillaume Hébert developed during his recent trip to Europe.

Guillaume’s work is related to a form of expressionism. He captures the passage of time and changes by noticing the small elements of an ever evolving life journey.

What he is looking for at first and foremost, are unusual and transitory scenes that nobody notices despite their interest, incredible colour schemes or emotional evocation. Observation is the key to his approach.


Rachel Wolfe
New Artist

We are proud to introduce new artist Rachel Wolfe at the The Print Atelier !

Rachel Wolfe is an interdisciplinary artist whose images and installations create a sensual and emotive view the relationship between Vision and Body.

Her monolithic image and text, Omniscient, recently won 1st place by the jury in the Imagining New Eurasia exhibition at Asia Culture Center in Gwanju, South Korea. She holds an MFA from Otis College of Art and Design. Rachel lives and works in Los Angeles and Oslo.

"The essential questions I work with are meditations on the Nature of Desire, or what moves a Body? I create art to consider aesthetic experience as a forum for conversations about the relationship between Vision and the Body."

"I seek to balance this spectrum of cognition, perception and emotion through the artwork I make centered on the felt senses. These art are not about my own emotion or feeling persay, but rather meditations on the senses themselves."

New Series By
Martina + Reem

How excited we are at The Print Atelier to be introducing 2 new series by Martina + Reem, colourful and powerful artworks that are just groundbreaking!

Martina + Reem are a duo of photographers who currently reside in Toronto, Canada. They met while studying at the Vancouver Institute of Media Arts. Combining photography with their prior backgrounds in art, their work explores elements of the fantastical in reality. Their signature has been described as conceptual and ethereal. They are highly influenced by art, nature and music.

" This time, the beloved duo artist offer us two series: Dizzy Ghosts and Exsangue ! "

Dizzy Ghosts is a series of 4 photographs taken in the Highlands of Scotland. The slightly spooky atmosphere, with a touch of mystery, puts emphasis on the greatness of the trees. These giants stand tall and proud despite hardships. As Martina + Reem point out: ”Storms make trees take deeper roots”.

Exsangue is part of a never-ending series. The search for a true home when your heart does not know what it desires. The colourful artworks bring an abnormal feeling but yet refreshing. This ethereal series truly shows the signature look of Martina + Reem.


François Ollivier
New Artist

We are so excited to introduce this new artist at The Print Atelier, his colorful and graphic works are just stunning! Welcome french photographer François Ollivier!

François Ollivier is a self-taught photographer. Born in the south of France, he lives and works in Montreal since 2011. François first studied languages, then worked as a lighting designer for shows, and spent several years being a creative advertising kind of guy. He now focuses on photography, based on observation and magnifying the simplest things.

" My approach is based on wandering and accepting the impromptu. I use photography to make simple factual observations and also to gather people, places, lines or lights in a setup that will exist only once. Why only once? "

The Print Atelier has the opportunity to present 4 new collections by this talented recruit. First off, National Geometric studies our faculty to forget our guides and to lose ourselves in nature, to read between straight lines drawn by man in his environment.

These photographs inspire a geometric side that brings up a powerful atmosphere.

Secondly, Perfect Strangers is a series that features people that are utterly strange and who agreed to be staged. Made by patience and by fortunate coincidence, this approach places the subject at the same hierarchical level as the “set” in which it joins. The image is the product of this encounter and becomes a reinterpretation of an often harmless space.

Thirdly, Frozen is a wonderful series about winter and its frosty atmosphere. François Olliver talks about this series in these words:

“Wintry poetry. Three-colored and lunar images, indefinite Siberian space.

Twice three images of the same place under various angles.

In one case, I am in the warmth of a plane which changes my vision by making the frozen geography scroll under my feet.

In other one I am literally freezing outside, it is me who evolve in the space to blow the warmth.”

Finally, the series C’est la Nuit represents the special moment when the artificial lighting becomes natural, the night glorifies the spaces which we ignore the day. In this new dimension, the slightest detail becomes dreamlike.


New Artist
Guillaume Hébert

We are honoured to welcome a new artist with The Print Atelier's collective, talented artist Guillaume Hébert.

Guillaume Hébert is a young photographer in his twenties who has recently completed his studies in photography at CEGEP du Vieux-Montreal.  What he is looking for at first and foremost, are unusual and transitory scenes that nobody notices despite their interest, incredible color schemes or emotional evocation. Observation seems to be the key to his approach. Guillaume believe his work is more related to a form of expressionism than to a conceptual approach, since it captures time, change and the state of things.

It is when he manages to capture the illusion of reality that he considers he has managed to achieve a photo that is unique, one that can not happened once again.

Guillaume calls this… The Concordance of time

The Print Atelier has the chance to present 3 new collections by the young talented recruit. First, Couleur is a digital series that was produced between 2012 and 2016 in order to depict scenes, people and objects that are not usually meant to be observed. Color photography allows Hebert to create important visual changes working on the chromatic of his images while in post-production. The goal is to control the tones, blend the colors so that they become element of picturality as a painting would, done by brush. The importance of the combination of colors and the captation of a scenery while shooting remains essential.

Secondly, his body of work Noir et Blanc offers some sort of finish that makes subjects unreal or reminiscent of the past, it brings a dramatic atmosphere to concepts that are not usually, and provides a misleading effect. In this series of digital images also taken from 2012 to 2016, the isolation of particular scenes showcases the beauty of black and white and the possibility given by modifications made from a computer.

The subject is the ultimate point of interest in a black and white photograph.

Finally, in Mt Washington/New Hampshire, 35 mm the artist express that even if he has known the medium of photography through film and analog camera first, he quickly got used to the digital world. In this series made in Mount Washington in September 2016, he used an old school film camera, because it is often linked to the idea of memories. He wanted to bring an authentic feel to this particular series and also illustrate what this new place he was exploring made him feel. Visiting this region, that is isolated and kept away from the rest of the world highlighted the sentiment of being lost and is represented here by images that have no post-production work.

TPA - In Summer Mode

The Print Atelier is in full summer mode!
So much has been going on in the last few weeks that we thought we should give you an update!

First off, Maude Arsenault, founder of The Print Atelier, gave a private tour of her own art collection in the comfort of her bohemian chic home. Our guest were able to discover the gorgeous and inspiring photography that Maude collected over the years all that in a relax and trendy atmosphere. The renowned wine waiter Jean-Benoît Hinse, from the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers, paid us a visit along with his talented co-worker Christine Couture from “Importation de vin Rousset“. We had the chance to savour delectable wines and champagnes while discovering amazing artworks.

Secondly, we also have some new works at the gallery! LM Chabot is latching some new pieces to their collection West! LM Chabot is the type of co-dependence you dream of. The perfect fusion of technique and instinct, sensitivity and objectivity, naivety and maturity, facial hair and red lipstick. This serie expose some clichés of a reportage shot on Pentax 67 during a road trip from Vancouver to San Diego.

Thirdly, Gunter Heinrich, President of Winchester Galleries, is pleased to introduce the work of photographer and environmental artist David Ellingsen who is also represented by The Print Atelier. David Ellingsen is a photographer and environmental artist creating images of site- specific installations, landscapes and object studies that speak to the natural world and Man’s impact upon it. At its core David’s work is motivated by the challenges of sustainability within contemporary Western culture.

This introductory exhibition includes work from three different series by the David. Future Imperfect explores the elements of man and the environment and the instinct of self-preservation in a Western culture that upholds its standards of living at all costs. The Last Stand addresses the state of our forests and the cognitive dissonance arising from the dilemma of participation in, and yet responsibility for, the fouling of one’s own nest. The site-specific installations in Obsolete Delete were informed by the increasing speed of technological obsolescence, the environment and the collision of the two.”

Finally, Musée Magazine, a cool art photography magazine and platform from New York, wrote a great article about the ingenious Robin Cerutti, also represented at The Print Atelier. Musée Magazine is a dynamic, digital quarterly and interactive website dedicated to featuring works by emerging and established artists. The article was mainly about Robin’s series, Parallel, where part of the image is above water’s surface and the other part is underwater. This creates an idea of two parallel worlds in which the subject either feels comfortable, taking time to discover the outside world or interact with the so-called membrane.

Nàdia transports us into a delicate world,

Dara Scully: A New Artist Joins Us

It was in early fall of this year that we became aware of young Spanish photographer, Dara Scully’s body of work. Channelling the spirits of photographers, both past and present, she could have been the love child of past Lewis Carroll and present Sally Mann. Dara Scully is a writer and photographer whose compelling images of children capture sombre, poetic scenes equal parts fantasy and myth. We are enthused to be welcoming her to The Print Atelier gallery and are so very eager for you to discover her wonderful works!

Scully’s photographs are, for us, some of the most endearing works we’ve shown at The Print Atelier, and there are several reasons for this. The photographs are an exploration of childhood,  at times depicting its innocence, desires never shying away from its cruelty and tenderness. In past interviews about her work, Scully has said:

“I usually understand my work like a book of poems,
like a visual notebook about all my past lives. [...]
I think that, in the end, my photographs are memories.
I never lived them, but they exist.”

In faded forests, enchanting bodies dwell. Death and life are present in the form of creates, insects, prone bodies and bleeding wounds. As a powerful conceptual photographer, Scully has developed the ability to tell single frame stories. Encapsulated sensorial experiences, the visual world of Dara Scully aboard’s the innocence of youth, the pain of growing, the sorrow of death.

In Scully’s world esoteric rituals transpire on quiet leaf beds. The calming effect is often overwhelming; blending reality and fiction, ambiguous scenes invite the viewer to instill their own significance.

Last Chance for The Last Stand: Only One Edition Left

Now is the last chance to get your hands on a large format edition of The Last Stand, the most recent transformative series by established artist David Ellingsen!

David is best known for his site-specific installations, landscapes and object studies that speak to the natural world and Man’s impact on it. His latest series, The Last Stand is a look at the forest industry in British Columbia. Davis says of the work that:

"it’s a series about many things but mostly about the environmental crisis. It took me about 5 years to photograph it all together over the time [...] It’s really a look at my family history in logging which is multigenerational. Five generations of my family have been involved in the logging industry in BC"

The Last Stand has been garnering international attention since its first showing back in 2014. Receiving honorable mentions at the 2014 International Photography Awards held in Los Angeles, selected as a finalist in the inaugural LensCulture Earth Awards and appearing in the Atkins CIWEM Environmental Photographer of the Year Exhibition 2015 exhibition in London, England, The Last Stand has been quickly gaining global recognition by esteemed panels of international photography experts and his peers alike.

Rising Art Stars: Buy The Works of LM Chabot

Gaze at any given print by the Montreal based duo that is LM Chabot and you will not be left indifferent. Their featured prints have been on The Print Atelier collectors radars since their addition to the gallery catalogue. Treading the fine line between movie stills and mementos, LM Chabot’s stunning images take us on a trip down a communal memory lane, capturing places and spaces that feel as much as a fixture in Americana as hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet.

"LM Chabot is the type of co-dependence you dream of. The perfect fusion of technique and instinct, sensitivity and objectivity, naivety and maturity, facial hair and red lipstick"

We are not the only ones that caught eye of their youthful and discerning vision. LM Chabot have been a force to be reckoned with garnering awards and distinctions for both their commercial and personal works. The year 2014 saw their works featured at The Magenta Foundation’s prestigious Flash Forward program. The annual competition showcases the work being created by the very best emerging photographers from Canada, the USA and the UK. Every year, judges from each of the participating countries review submitted work and identify those young people that they believe show great promise as professional fine art or documentary photographers.

This year, notably, they’ve been acclaimed for their whimsical fashion series “Les Grandes Personnes” and our featured travel series “Hawaii’ at the 2015 Applied Arts Photography & Illustration Awards. They had an opportunity to showcase “Les Grandes Personnes” at Chromatic Paris earlier this spring. Chromatic offers a festive gathering where art shines in all its forms : visual, sound , physical, interactive and contemplative .Alongside its 6th edition in Montreal in 2015 Chromatic deployed its first international edition in Paris. Over 110 designer Montreal & Paris from all disciplines and all levels of the city were in view for 3 days. Installation, painting, photography, music, performance, workshops , party : the festive exposure to 360 ° creativity settles for the first time in Paris.

For this latest featured series “Hawaii’’ the dynamic duo that is LM Chabot (Alexandre Chabot and Jolianne L’allier Matteau), have once more pointed their inquisitive lense towards our neighbours to the south. “Hawaii’’ is a study of colors and shapes inspired by nature in its raw state. From surfing scenery to volcanic landscapes, the duo captured the exoticism of this state, lost in the Pacific Ocean. Staying true to themselves, the duo draws us into a series of contemplative moments, where the lack of human presence leaves ample room for a dreamlike environment to remain well preserved.

Maude Arsenault's home!

Style at Home Magazine

– one of Canada’s top Deco and Design magazine – presents for its September issue a 6 pages story on The Print Atelier’s curator, Maude Arsenault’s home and art collection. Feel welcome and inspired, as the artworks guide you from room to room, piquing your interest at each glance. Though this impeccably appointed house is not a gallery, it was decorated with the expert eye of a fashion photographer and online gallery owner, and its effect is the same: It beckons you to explore each corner and ask about every piece.

“I’ve always felt that my home is more about showcasing art then it is about design” says Maude

The Print Atelier wants to share this idea of a home used as a blank canvas for displaying art that reflects you and your personality which is the secret to successful design. Not surprisingly, in Maude’s house every single wall is white (what gallery’s walls aren’t?). Warm and cool shades, high-gloss and eggshell finishes and wall treatments ranging from beadboard in the dining room to brick in the living room ensure the effect isn’t too sterile. Meanwhile, strong doses of black and grey – the entryway stair runner, living room drapery and dining room table and pendant light, to name a few –punctuate the rooms and ground their airy brightness. This simple palette provides the perfect backdrop for what really brings the space to life: THE ARTWORK. The collection is consistent throughout the whole house – it’s all compelling photography, mostly contemporary, some portraits, in muted colours and with personal meaning for Maude, whether they’re her own works, some of her artists or great finds. Maude’s advice when buying art:

“Dont’ buy something because its good value or the next cool artist… Trust your instincts and invest in something you really love you’ll have to live with it for a long time.”


Contemporary Portraiture - A Photographic Study on Plastic Bags - A New Series by Daniel Shipp

A new series by australian photographer Daniel Shipp is now available at The Print Atelier.

The common plastic shopping bag is an object that is generally not considered beautiful or worthy of much contemplation. “Bags” is a series of photographic studies featuring plastic bags containing objects which are obscured by the heightened texture of the plastic surface. What the bags hold is floating in a void, reduced to clues about color palette, shape and scale. In absence of specific details, the artist is interested in how these clues might tap into our deep memories that allow our imagination to “see” the object instantly, or whether we may never totally grasp what is inside. By studying the surface of the bag to try and see beyond it, we are appreciating its form in a new way and it asks us to reconsider its value as an object of beauty.
