Emma Ducharme is a Tkarón:to based multidisciplinary artist. Ducharme graduated with a BFA in Drawing & Painting from OCAD University in 2021, and recently presented works in the Untapped section at the Artist Project, at the Latcham Art Centre, and at the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Her work seeks to expand perspectives on identity beyond merely the representational, specifically as she learns to navigate her own identity as a queer woman. Her practice is a space for questioning and disruption; exploring the tumultuous nature of emotion & grief contradictory to capitalist consumer culture rooted in weaponized emotional ignorance. Through her playful use of colour and stern materiality, Ducharme invites a larger questioning on the illusory nature of life and being; on the ways in which what we see is not always what it seems.
