Edith Tremblay is a Montreal-based painter and
photographer who has developed a singular bi-polar
approach to portrait. Her medium of choice for
immortalizing other people's faces is painting,
while she has created an impressive body of
work of self-portraits photography displaying
an exquisite sense of mise-en-scène.
Trained in Interdisciplinary Arts at the
Chicoutimi University, she has made Montreal
her home and playground. When she is not busy
discovering rarities and collectibles, she
enjoys the visit of many foreign artists in her
apartment-workshop she calls The Embassy.
Her first painting exhibit featured portraits
of strangers, friends, lovers and famous actors, but
not necessarily in that order. Her work can be found
in numerous private collections, but despite her
rising popularity, she has refused to increase her
output and maintains a very strict selection
process about which she is very private. While
she will always deny the existence of a cult
following on the Internet, the evidence of fan
behaviour and quasi-stalking interactions can
be found on social networks.
