Edith Lebeau is a Canadian artist based on the north shore of Montreal, Quebec. She lives in the countryside, surrounded by fields, forest and a distant horizon line.
Edith’s work is focused on mental health awareness. She tells stories through the portraits that she creates.
Certain Scars Can’t Be Seen is her debut solo exhibition with Thinkspace Projects, following numerous group show appearances over the last few years.
Lebeau is exploring through the eyes of different woman characters, the various fears and dark emotions that we have in the deepest recesses of our mind. She paints female figures who are facing their own insecurities. These women are left alone with these feelings and fears that we ourself try to forget and try to bury.
Her work is about struggle, fear, insecurities but also about strength and hope.
Edith wants to help break down the stigma surrounding mental illness and through her work she wants to help people who are dealing with mental illness know they are not alone.
