Gisele Poisson is a conceptual artist from Windsor, ON. Her interest in abstraction and semiotics is currently channeled into mixed media works on paper / canvas, however, her highly experimental approach to art making is evidenced by her previous work as a performance artist. Her work incorporates deconstructed fragments that are re-appropriated into new narratives. Each mark contains its own history, citing the line or smudge as its proper subject. The process is the painting - making reference to undisclosed histories that speak of: curiosity, need, identity and compulsion.
She completed a BFA in 2006 at the University of Windsor, ON.
