Hélène Cenedese | Traces, Between Memory and Oblivion
Galerie C.O.A is pleased to present the most recent addition to its stable of artists, Montreal artist Hélène Cenedese.
Born in 1973, Hélène Cenedese is a Montreal-based visual artist principally versed in drawing, painting, and printmaking. Her works are characterised by a visual language that is both poetic and visceral. Hélène Cenedese is an Honours graduate from Concordia University's Visual arts program and has established a career as a social worker over the past 20 years. Working mainly in Montreal's South West, she is brought to develop connections with individuals experiencing loss of independence. Their intimate spaces - their homes, daily lives, memories and life stories - make up her work environment. Cenedese has also worked in Nunavik, in the northernmost part of Quebec's Hudson Bay, between 2000 and 2003. Following this pivotal residence among the Inuits (Nunavimmiut), she chose to further explore, and develop her artistic practice.
