Corinne Blouin (also known as CoBlou) is a francophone multi-disciplinary artist based in Ottawa. She questions the intricate relationships between human emotion and the energetic body in order to create a deeper understanding of her personal narratives and inner worlds. She explores the subtle worlds of dream states, physical/emotional transformation and organic states of being to create other-wordly paintings, illustrations, murals and installations. Transforming these abstract states into material form allows them to take on new shapes through the unique perspectives of those interacting with her works. She also loves encouraging others to foster their relationships with creative energy through various community-involved projects.
