Sophie Jodoin

Born in Montreal, Sophie Jodoin received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Concordia University, followed by after two years at the New York Academy of Art studying anatomy. Sophie was one of the few artists selected to represent Montreal for "Made in Canada: Contemporary Art in Montreal", an exhibition at the Plattsburgh State University Museum in New York.

Jodoin's work is centers on representations of the body and its absence as an alternative narrative space. Her intimate works serve as a starting point for exploration of the body by way of interrogating our perception of it, both from an external perspective that considers it as an object to study, dissect, and analyze, as well as from an internal point of view as a lived space, inhabited and experienced. In her practice, drawing coexists with collage, photography, text, found objects and video. In the creation of an indivisible series, her artworks are presented as installations or groupings intuitively arranged in order to reveal new narratives. A minimalistic approach of working exclusively in black and white is an integral element of her practice.

Sophie's work has been highlighted in the Calgary Herald, the Globe and Mail, Preview Magazine, Border Crossings and Galleries West to name a few. Jodoin's drawings have been widely exhibited across Canada, the USA and Europe in both solo and group exhibitions. She has worked collaboratively on published novels, dramatic works and poetry and was a recipient in 2014 of the Quebec Council of Arts and Letters six-month residency in London, UK. Her work can be found in private and corporate collections throughout North America and Europe.
