Luanne Martineau, MFA, BFA
Associate Professor, Painting and Drawing
Luanne Martineau's drawings and wool sculptures explore the places in between art genres, engaging a long tradition of social satire within contemporary art. Combining various methods of craft and the legacies of 1960s fine art, the Saskatoon-born artist's "drulptures" blur the boundaries between style and ideology as well as high modernist art and the baseness of the body. Martineau was the recipient of the 2007 Shadbolt Foundation's VIVA Award for the Visual Arts, and in 2009 represented British Columbia for the Sobey Art Award of Canada. A guest lecturer at the Tate Modern for the Banff Centre for the Arts and Middlesex University symposium, Informal Architecture, Martineau has most recently exhibited work at the National Gallery of Canada, the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Power Plant, and Musée d'art Contemporain de Montréal. Her work will be exhibited at MASS MoCA in May 2012.
