A professional artist since 2008, she completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in visual arts at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 2014. The work of award-winning artist Josiane Lanthier appears in various private collections in Canada, Germany, Denmark, Italy and the United States as well as in the corporate collection of Scotiabank.
Through a play on color, texture, luminosity, and overlapping layers, which allows her to manipulate one’s perception and to give her work another dimension, the artist examines color complementarity. Via a juxtaposition of bright, saturated shades mixed with pastels, allowing the colors to radiate, Josiane Lanthier infuses warmth to cool tones, an approach which is at the center of her artistic practice. She appreciates experimenting with different tools, textures, and finishes, forever on the lookout for startling results.
