To me the surface to paint is an event space. A scene where lines and forms move, dance, slide, collide and play amongst them.From these lines and forms a structure appears, that I often destroy and transform, hoping that something unexpected appears. The color has a structural function, which reunites, separates, isolates and concentrates the forms. Many sensations are generated from it.
Josée Charbonneau, Micheline Couture
She completed her studies in graphic design at the « Cégep du Vieux-Montréal » in 1976. Since 2007, she has been printmaking at Atelier Circulaire. Her works have been exhibited and acquired by private and public collectors including National Bank of Canada, Library Gabrielle Roy of Quebec, National Archives of Quebec.
She chose digital print as a tool for expression. Her works are surreal and dreamlike. These are visions escaped from her unconscious and which draw their strength from the imagination of childhood.

I am print making artists working with lithography, silkscreen, wood engraving. Since 1985, I integrated computer imaging . My silkscren prints on fabric took me away from traditional print making to the birth of the new textile art. (Biennale de la nouvelle tapisserie de Montréal) Now, back to paper I find myself fascinated with miniature works with limited copies of numerical prints.
Linda Luttinger is a visual artist living in Montreal.
She works digitally as well as traditionally. Linda holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University as well as a technical degree in Illustration and Design, from Dawson College. Her artwork depicts inviting and troubling worlds where the characters who reside often find themselves in a state of contemplation, solitude and vulnerability. There is an emphasis on contrasting symbolism, which creates heightened realities that surpass logic. Since 2008, she exhibits her paintings, collages and numeric art in solo and group shows in different Montreal galleries. She has shown her work at VAV gallery ( Dialogix, 2010), CtrlLab gallery ( Wall Space, 2008), Art Neuf gallery (Souvenirs, 2015) and presently at Gallery Luz in the Belgo.
Her latest series entitled ‘Out of Time’ (2015-2016) is inspired by retro and surrealist art, and romantic concepts of time such as time travel. Throughout the use of various digital collage techniques, old and recent photographs are modified and assembled to create a unique image. Images that remind us of past eras, but integrated in futuristic and imaginary environments.
