Originally from Gatineau, Geneviève Pratte earned her BFA from l’Université du Québec en Outaouais. Following upon her MFA from the University of Ottawa in 2010, where she was influenced by Mélanie Authier and Martin Golland, she developed a practice inspired by the landscape and the environment. Since then Pratte has participated in numerous group and solo exhibitions in the province. At the heart of Pratte’s enquiry is the land and human impact on the eco-system. Pratte’s work is at once intuitive and spontaneous, bursting with intense, vibrant colour.
