Montreal artist Martine Frossard answered our interview questions — with drawings
Montreal's Martine Frossard draws a lot of things, but never a blank
Who is Martine Frossard? That's a big question — and one of the central themes of her art. Raised in France and now based in Montreal, Frossard is a multi-disciplinary artist, and whether she's working with pencil, collage or animation, her creations often explore the search for identity. Splicing architectural shapes with the architecture of the human body, her portraits suggest dreamlike transformations, something you'll see Sunday when her short films — including this one, Thirty Masks — appear on Exhibitionists.
So, back to that original question. You'll find a few answers through Frossard's art — and that's why this is a different sort of Q&A.
