France Jodoin

France Jodoin is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Cowansville, Quebec. Inspired by old masters such as Mallord William Turner, Rembrandt and Gustave Mureau, Jodoin uses her own semi-abstract style to create the bold landscapes she is known for. Her work is intuitive, instinctive and transcendent. Jodoin is intrigued with time and the brevity of life, both of which are themes found throughout her body of work.

France Jodoin has gained wide recognition in Canada and Europe. Her work is in public collections including the Sherbrooke Museum of Fine Arts, Loto-Quebec and Cirque du Soleil.

Jodoin exhibits her work widely, and completed solo exhibitions of her work in Ottawa, Boston, and Montreal in 2018, with solo exhibitions in Ontario and Atlanta set up for 2019. Jodoin participated in the Artist in Residency program at Shankill Castle at Paulstown, County Kilkenny, Ireland in 2018.

“My works are chiefly concerned with time, with the very brevity of life itself. The fundamental impulse animating my creative process is to esteem time passing.”
