In conjunction with Monique's work as this year's featured artist at The Canadian Tulip Festival, this show is displayed in the Cube Gallery's  upper salon.

Monique Martin is a multi-disciplinary artist and art educator. Her artwork includes painting, sculpture, printmaking, installation, bookmaking and drawing.

Monique's artwork often utilizes historically significant symbols and images to express her ideas. Many ideas, symbols and meanings are gathered while traveling and seeing new images, studying the masters and meeting other contemporary artists.  Monique researches many of her concepts in detail prior to creating her work.

Every action in life, every interaction and research project undertaken produces an energy that vibrates within her and connects her to the people she in contact with.  Sometimes a small incident, a promise only half-intended, a touch, or a casual remark, can set off a chain of events that will alter lives and change destinies.

Like a pebble in a pond, the rings of energy keep moving outward from the initial touch, whether it is physical, emotional, spiritual or mental.  It is in responding to these ever changing ripples in the connections between humans that inspire her work. Her work utilizes ever-changing concepts and images because her art is a way of exploring who she is, who she was, who she is becoming and where she fits into the world around her. 

Monique has exhibited, printmaking, paintings, sculptures, installations and book works in more than one hundred ninety solo, invited and juried group exhibitions in ten countries. Her works are held in more than twenty-five public and private collections in nine different countries.
