About the artists
Marie-Claire Blais (b. 1974, Lévis) is a leading light of contemporary art in Montreal, yet until now her work has not been presented in a major Canadian museum. Blais extends the language of abstraction into the contemporary movement, painting on canvas and then cutting, shredding and unraveling the painting surface to produce subtle works that hover between sculpture and painting.
Jeremy Laing (b. 1980, Peterborough) is a Toronto-based artist and designer. A graduate of the Ryerson School of Fashion he launched his first collection in 2005 and has shown at New York Fashion Week. Since 2014, he has worked as a design consultant focusing on textiles, apparel, and interiors.
