Ariane Fairlie

is an artist in based Montreal. Originally from Toronto, she received her BFA from Concordia University in 2014.
 

Ariane's artwork is an ongoing exploration of the female figure as it relates to her lived experience identifying as female, as well as the body’s ability to express emotion. In this sense, her work is autobiographical. She is particularly interested in themes of desire, seduction, sexuality, vulnerability, tenderness, exhibitionism, anonymity, and duality, especially in relation to, and redefining aspects of, femininity.

Her paintings incorporate the female gaze, feminized fantasies, and emotionality through an atmospheric and emotive aesthetic, marking feminine empowerment by embracing, redefining, and deriving power from emotion and sexuality.
