Éloïse Brodeur was raised in an environment suitable for the development of her own creativity. Her mother was a painter and her father an architect. She graduated from Concordia University in Montreal and received various awards and scholarships for her artwork. Brodeur also had the opportunity of attending advanced drawing workshops in Umbria, Italy. Since 1999, Brodeur has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions across Canada.
While exploring the theme of the cow, Éloïse Brodeurs’ work arouses debate. She certainly calls into question the way our society functions, our methods of consumption, abundance, excess, overproduction and as well as the historical domestication of the animal. She also respects her subject’s peacefulness and equanimity by using a palette based in contrast. The emptiness or the pure space that surrounds the subject, brings balance and calls for serenity and introspection in the viewer.
