October 31st – November 14th, 2021
FINE ARTIST & ILLUSTRATOR
Emily Bezaire was born in Essex County, Ontario, and returned to her native roots in 2015 after a twenty-three year interval in the Southern United States. She has been working professionally as a freelance
artist since 2006, following in the footsteps of her father, Bruce Bezaire, who has enjoyed a successful career as a fine artist and art professor. Emily has benefited from her father’s guidance, both informally and at institutions of
higher learning; the two have also collaborated on a graphic novel adaptation of the biblical book of Jonah. Emily has produced many commissions for clients in her chosen media of graphite and India ink, including album covers and portraits. She also enjoys exploiting her own personal experiences and surroundings to create striking black-and-white ink drawings. Her artwork has been exhibited publicly in the United States and Canada, and can be
viewed on her website: www.emilybezaire.com
Ink is an ancient medium, and one that demands conviction. Making a black mark on a white sheet of paper is a fundamental, determined act. Ink can be pushed past its perceived limits, used to evoke an entire spectrum and range of experience. It can be used to convey personal expression, but implicit in the very vehicle employed to create this subjective narrative is the underlying fact that, ultimately, life is black and white. Truth is objective.
