Born in Quebec, Joelle Circé now lives in Ontario, Canada. My artwork strives to reflect the many facets and nuances of the female condition. My unique social positioning as a woman of transsexual experience, lesbian, femme, feminist, informs the lens with which I view the world. I seek to explore and represent women in our most vulnerable as well as in our most powerful states. I seek to celebrate the power and beauty of all women and finds reward and happiness in representing the diversity and grace of women in often over looked and ignored marginalized spaces, and my work speaks often to the social, political and cultural realities of women living and surviving in a misogynistic world. While my work reproduces familiar concepts of the nude and the female erotic, my art is integrated in a feminist anti-oppressive framework that contributes to the narrative and symbology evident in my work.
