Second Book on the way!

I am so happy to announce that this second book ” Circé’s Art: a post transition evolution “, different from the first one which is a memoir and yet so intimately attached to it since it is also about my transition and identity as a woman. This time, it will be through my paintings that I document and visually narrate my views and awareness of certain aspects of coming into my own as a woman. The paintings from 2001 onwards speak to my evolution since transitioning, as a woman of… Read more Second Book on the way!

The Space Between ( in progress )

I wanted to explore the ” othering ” of women of trans origins, of trans misogyny, even within queer women’s spaces who promote inclusivity of trans folk. I asked some friends and acquaintances to meet me at a women’s bath house in Toronto, got permission from the owner and proceeded to set up a scene and got someone to take the photo from which I worked on to produce this painting.It goes as follows, I am sitting aside from the other women, my sisters, physically apart, not by desire but… Read more The Space Between ( in progress )

Coming to grips with me.

As many humans, I have this tendency of not really seeing or fully acknowledging my worth, I am self-deprecating and don’t always understand that who and what I am has value, is valuable. Being an artist, I’ve created so many paintings over the years and though I know I’m pretty good at what I do, more often than not I find I’m not good enough, not creatively or technically, I seem to judge what I’ve created as somehow of lesser value than it is. I am catching myself, trying to… Read more Coming to grips with me.

Vampires

Nights Sweet Reward / La Nuit et sa Récompense@Circé Oil on canvas / huile sur toile16” x 20”The vampiress holds her lover in her embrace, her vampire nature, a symbol of a strength known by women about their sisters but feared and discouraged in a patriarchal society. I depict her lover, eyes closed and abandoning herself to whatever may come. In this scene, I am exploring the Madonna / Whore persona as well as the huntress and prey dynamic. La vampire tient son amoureuse dans ses bras. Sa nature, un symbole… Read more Vampires

Erotic Art

Rope Play / Jeux de Cordes©Circéoil on canvas / huile sur toile 24” x 36” Female sexuality, power exchange, consent. Circé sees such activities as a possible subversive act of lampooning patriarchy. She does not perceive any woman who participate in Kink or BDSM play as non-feminist, but rather sees it all as just another expression of sexuality.  For Circé, there is no shame in consensual sexuality. That the patriarchy may have had a hand in how a woman can be a submissive can hold truth, it should never take away… Read more Erotic Art
