Jacqueline Primeau (she/her) is a painter, a mixed media artist, a poet, and a traveller. She paints landscapes in an expressionistic, semi-abstract style. She is more interested in capturing the mood or essence of the landscapes which inspire her than in realistic depictions. For her, painting is poetic expression. She wants her paintings to give the viewer a sense of calm, like a good poem does. In her mixed media paintings she wants to tell a story, but she wants the final artwork to be somewhat ambiguous so that the viewer can create their own story from it.
She works intuitively, using acrylic paint and a wide range of collage materials. She enjoys exploring and experimenting. Jacqueline identifies as Métis. Her studies in First Nations history and life experiences influence her artwork. She has a BFA from Concordia University. She has shown her work at many of the Art Councils in BC; at Martin Batchelor Gallery in Victoria, BC; at the Lost and Found Café; at the West End Community Centre; at Melriches Coffeehouse and at the FCA Gallery. She currently lives and creates in Vancouver, BC.
