A graduate of the École d’architecture du paysage de l’Université de Montréal, Renée Gélinas is a member of Atelier Circulaire, RAAV and Xylon Québec. She is the curator, alongside with Nicole Milette, of the exhibition " 70 artists - 70 prints - In the footsteps of Dumouchel". She lives and works in Montreal.
Renée Gélinas’ artworks are created using the techniques of lithography and linocut. The use of collage, cutting and recombination of forms employing digital tools are also part of her creative process. Her abstract constructions stem from a process of non-linear composition close to that of poetic creation and are deliberately devoid of perspective, meaning and symbols.
Her works are part of various private and public collections, including those of Loto-Québec and the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec, and have been presented in numerous solo and group exhibitions across Quebec, Canada and the United States.
