Emma Loiselle

Emma Loiselle is a Canadian visual artist currently based in Kingston, Ontario. She is studying Fine Arts and Art History at Queen’s University (Class of 2021).

Emma creates vivid figurative compositions that observe reoccurring themes of femininity, often with multiple figures in transitioning positions. The representation of women in her work serves as a gateway to illustrate a vast range of human emotions, which are commonly questioning and challenging autobiographical experiences. Her art is a reflection of all her existing fascinations with humanity and the everchanging feelings of isolation, fear and love in different environments. She strives to visually capture the contrasting relationships we share within ourselves as well as with the outside world, drawing on techniques where realism is being manipulated through energetic bursts of abstract expressionism. Finding inspiration from exploring her mind and observing her relationships within impactful experiences, Emma attempts to story-tell how we transition, encounter and remember these fleeting moments. As she matures in her art practice, she hopes to find more honest representations of the mind.

Her preferred mediums include oil, acrylic and watercolor paintings, alongside screen printing and stone lithography. She enjoys indulging in the combination of realism and expressionism to present her ideas, finding that realism alone carries too many limitations.
