Carrie Perreault started painting the weekly flowers she keeps in her home during the various stages of lockdown, when materials and studio space were difficult to come by. The vases of flowers she paints are an exercise in accepting the impermanence of our day-to-day. Cut flowers help to remind her of the passing of time and how our days and ephemerality are interwoven.
Recent exhibitions and projects include It's a Thin Line, Gallery Stratford (2021), Pacing the House, University of Waterloo Art Gallery (2021), and period of adjustment, Niagara Artists Centre, St. Catharines (2019). Carrie Perreault was last year's Toronto Outdoor Art Fair's "Best of Art Fair" awardee, and in 2019 she published period of adjustment, a poster/ pamphlet with essays by Sky Goodden and Lucy R. Lippard. Perreault is also the editor of a two-volume collaborative recipe project called The Artist Cookbook. Learn more at: www.theartistcookbook.ca
