États féminins en mouvance, essai n ° 1 reflects on a certain historical socio-cultural heritage in relation to the construction of female identity. By an approach structured around materiality and volume and by the use of various mediums, photography, installation and collage, Arsenault explores, using objects traditionally used in the feminine and domestic world, symbols which offer a reflection on how women’s identity is influenced and built on, in our Western societies.

The Print Atelier is enthused to present Eglantine Lavogez and her diptych series titled “Getting Closer”.
“Minimalist and graphic, this is my gaze on the city and its details. This is how I can sum up this series.” – Eglantine Lavogez
“Les yeux du ciel” by Daniel Desmarais consists of a series of aerial photographs of the Haitian territory taken during his helicopter trips in the country. The photos are structured around compositions and textures of the landscapes he has encountered.
Artists Robin Cerutti and François Ollivier create fascinating instant stories by capturing people in their environment.
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.
Artists : Rachel Wolfe & Guillaume Hébert
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.
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 colour schemes or emotional evocation. Observation seems to be the key to his approach. Guillaume believes 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 photograph that is unique, one that can not happen once again. Guillaume calls this… The Concordance of time.

THE PRINT ATELIER & JOYCE YAHOUDA PARTNER WITH GENESIS MOTORS CANADA FOR AN EXCLUSIVE CONTEMPORARY ART EVENT
“Mobilità is movement, the capacity to move; it is mobility. We live in a mobile era, undoubtedly more than ever before in the history of non-nomadic cultures.
If instability and the absence of seemingly immutable material or emotional bonds constitute the fragile face of mobility, the notion is also paired with a number of desirable conditions, such as fluidity, flexibility, adaptability, accessibility, diversity, exchange, freedom and discovery – all of which hold strength. As Lafontaine’s reed that merely bends when the winds blow wild.
Mobilità is about having seized the opportunity as it passed, one that allowed for the meeting of two curators who produced an open-minded, fluid selection of some thirty works of contemporary art by Canadian and international artists.
Movement in these works is temporal; it traverses history or intervenes in the space-time continuum of a landscape; it is physical, visible or intensely contained; it is lyrical and suggested; it is expressed through song and dance; it is documented; it is conveyed by ideas or empathy; it is shaped in clay and stilled behind a lens.
Mobilità is being alive.”
– Jennifer Couëlle
Let’s enjoy the Summer vibes! Here’s a beautiful selection of works that carry summer spirit into our homes.
Breaking through the boys’ club of photography, these daring female visionaries illuminated identity, the body and sexuality. They capture the female form in ways that transcend easy classification as subject or object.
Martina + Reem’s work challenges the relationship between art and space. Through the distortion of various hues and ethereal layers, the duo redefines the Wild through a haze of dappled light, and brazenly confronts our vulnerability to Nature’s immeasurability.
Paying attention to details we came to ignore, the self-taught artist has the courage to avoid conventional boundaries, living – as William Blake, also an autodidact, wrote – as if “nature has no outline but imagination has”.
The Print Atelier is thrilled to welcome new emerging artist François Ollivier to our roster of photographers.
Ollivier is a self-taught photographer, born in the south of France. We are introducing François’s works with 4 first series, National Geometric, Perfect Strangers, Frozen and C’est la nuit. This talented young artist uses photography to make simple factual observations and to gather people, places, lines or lights in a setup that will exist only once. He creates artworks, based on the concept of perception and the idea of magnifying the simplest things.
The Print Atelier is thrilled to introduce new emerging artist Guillaume Hébert to our roster of photographers. Guillaume Hébert is a young artist in his twenties who has recently completed his studies in photography. Observation is the key to his approach. What he is looking for at first and foremost, are unusual and transitory scenes that nobody notices despite their incredible interest, color scheme and emotional strength.
Hébert is presenting three series to start, Noir et Blanc, Couleur and Mount Washington/New Hampshire, 35 mm. These collections are a successful mix of great photographic techniques and a study of spontaneous encounters.
The Print Atelier is thrilled to present its autumn show featuring new works by duo artists Martina + Reem! “From the Sky” is composed of gorgeous and breathtaking inflight scenery creating gloomy point of views of different cities visited by the artists along their travelling .

The Print Atelier is excited to introduce new works of the series Slipped my Mind from creative duo artists Martina + Reem.
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.
Transporting us in a completely different dimension. In this new series you can discover colourful and powerful landscapes that offers a dialogue between life reality and life as a fantasy. Here’s a hint on how artists Martina + Reem brought to life this poetic series, It Slipped my Mind:
I fall between the waves of two worlds. A reality and a fantasy brought together as one. The freedom of seeing it as I want to be is all I need to carry on. And for a moment in time. I feel free. Series inspiration: “Default” by Atoms for Peace.
