BGL is a group of Montreal-based artists who've been around for 18 years (Jasmin Bilodeau, Sébastien Giguère and Nicolas Laverdière all students at Laval University). Cliches, food, local signs and other flotsam appear in their work. The art contemplates consumer culture and other aspects of our modern world from a view that is slightly askew...ok more than slightly.
Werner, originally from Manitoba and living in Montreal, paints portraits as a means "to explore notions of subjectivity and desire." Her works are composites of reality and transformation, of notions of innocence and loss. There is more than the surface image in these works.
