In September 2022, Feheley Fine Arts was pleased to present a solo exhibition of work by Montreal-based artist, Lyne Bastien. The exhibition featured softly rendered coloured pencil drawings depicting forms and images of the Arctic which hold special meaning for the artist. Born in Abitibi, a forest-rich region in western Quebec, Bastien’s affinity for nature began during her youth spent camping, hunting, and fishing in the wilderness near her home. When Bastien moved to the Arctic community of Puvirnituq in 2014, it brought her back to her Abitibi roots, reinvigorating her appreciation for nature.
In this video, Bastien discusses works in the show and her connections to home.
