Marie-Claude Pratte’s paintings reflect and denounce society’s ills and fraudulent fronts: “In painting, I aim to transpose actual events into portraits of society and works of modern history.” She creates raw figures inspired by characters from our cities’ streets. At the Darling Foundry, she presents a panorama of Montreal’s own peculiar streets, with its atypical facades and eccentric personalities.
Marie Claude Pratte is gratuated in Fine Arts from Concordia University in 1985. Since 2007, she exhibited in International Art Symposium from Baie-Saint Paul and was part of artistic collectives such as Etats d'Urgence and the Tarot de Montreal. Her work was presented in Vancouver, Strasbourg (France) and New York. Pratte's work is also part of important public and private's collections: the MNBAQ, Art Contemporary in Baie-Saint-Paul and Fasken Martineau.
