Julie Liger-Bélair

“Stories, legends, dreams and the surrealist worlds they evoke have always been a part of the human experience; a way for us to make sense of our surroundings and to explain away some of our fears. As a child these were the things that most captured my imagination and seem to have woven themselves into the fabric of my personality. I am a collector at heart, constantly collecting bits of ideas and fragments of objects, all with their own little stories to tell. By combining these in different ways in assemblage pieces, they form new narratives and meanings of their own.”

Julie Liger-Belair lives in Toronto, where she attended the Ontario College of Art and Design. For the past 20 years, she has participated in group and solo shows in Canada, the United States and Europe. When not doing her art work she spends time with her partner and three creative kids.
