Ysabel LeMay (Canada) - Illuminated / The transmitter
Quebec born Ysabel LeMay’s artitic journey is itself a “Journey of Simplicity”. In 1987 she began a thriving career as a graphic artist. Seeking greater fulfillment, she made a transition into the fine arts studying painting at the Emily Carr University of Art and left In 2002 the world of corporate advertising behind, devoting full-time to her painting. In 2010 she turned her full attention to photogrpahy. Combining her technical expertise with her deep-seated roots as a painter, LeMay continues her exploration into the power and divinity of nathure through a unique process she calls “Photo-Fusion”.
At first glance, you might think you are looking at a hyper-realistic painting. However, LeMay’s innovative technique is a lengthy process during which hundreds of photographs are taken and light and visual properties are attuned. She then assembles one details at a time in a painterly fashion to form a single composition. Ysable LeMay is presently living and working in Naples Florida.
