Joelle Circe - Waving Pride - 2012

Joelle Circé is a guest artist at the Lilith Gallery. Her work is a blend of feminism/queer life and erotica. She trained in a private art school in Montreal in the early eighties. She is inspired by women artists and all sisters but does acknowledge her traditional fine art training in regards to technical expertise. She draws on women’s lived experiences, from taboo topics like abuse and erotica to her own personal life as a woman of transexual origin and how this aspect of her has influenced her gaze.

"The focus of my art is on such themes as abuse and oppression, women’s vulvas as inspired by the Vagina Monologues / The Dinner Party and yes, Georgia O’Keefe’s flowers, sexism, gender identity, erotica, body image, women’s rights, queer life, and on occasion, some vampiristic painting imbued with the erotic." - Joelle Circé, 2012.

Joelle has shown her works in various International Erotic Art Festivals and Shows in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, New York and Detroit. Her art has also been showcased at the EstroGenius Art Festival in the Manhattan Source Theatre in New York in 2011 as well as a three month duo showing at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art ( Soho, New York, November 2011 to February 15th, 2012 ).

She delves into topics that are near and dear to her as a woman first and foremost and this includes her being a woman loving woman and one of transexual origin. She paints in oils on canvas and does not shy away from creating provocative pieces. Joelle presently lives in Ontario, Canada.
