Nathalie Thibault

Nathalie’s pictorial exploration is rooted in the search for a correlation between gesture and matter. Through a process which combines intuition, luck, and skill, her abstract compositions reflect both fluidity and restraint. The irregularly-shaped canvas, with its objective properties, guides her interventions on the surface while providing a basis and context for their application. This assemblage work takes shape from one gesture to the next and generates an abstract composition with an asserted presence.


Nathalie Thibault was born in La Pocatière in 1975, and now lives and works in Quebec City. Since receiving her MFA in visual arts from Université Laval in 2005, she has shown her solo work in Quebec and Ontario, notably at Galerie Simon Blais (Montreal, 2011), LE Gallery (Toronto, 2010/2013) and Elgar Community Centre (2018). She was a semi-finalist in the RBC Canadian Painting Competition, a finalist for the Videre award for emerging artists (2006), and a semi-finalist in the 100 Painters of Tomorrow international competition. She has exhibited at Montreal’s Musée d’art contemporain and at Toronto’s Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery (2009), and in September 2017 she was included in Entangled: Two Views on Contemporary Canadian Painting at the Vancouver Art Gallery. Her works are held in private and institutional collections including the Desjardins Collection and the circulating collection (COPA) of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.
