Johanne Brouillette is a French Canadian abstract artist who has been painting just
North of Montréal for over 25 years.
Brouillette studied and painted figurative landscapes in oil for many years but chose to never exhibit or sell her artwork. She decided to attend an abstract workshop in 2016 and immediately found her new passion. She has since taken numerous workshops, specialized courses and residencies and continues to perfect her art to this day.
Influenced by Automatistes painters such as Riopelle, Borduas and Ferron, she has found freedom of expression in abstraction pursued through automatism: an instinctive, unpremeditated form of creating art, and has developed her own distinctive signature. Johanne is a jury elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists,
the Federation of Canadian Artists and Mondial Art Academia in France.
Her abstract paintings have been included in regional, national and international juried exhibits and have been awarded several prizes. Since 2016, she has participated in 4 solo and over 40 group exhibitions. Her work appeared in the Art Edit section of House & Garden Magazine (UK) in June 2019 and was featured in Issue 15 of Spotlight Contemporary Art Magazine, in France in July of the same year. Selected by Contempo Annual as one of the best emerging abstract artists of 2019, her artworks are to be published in their inaugural book in December.
