Janet Logan holds a BFA from Concordia University (1978) and an MFA in visual arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal (1993). Since 1981, her work has been exhibited in Quebec and abroad, and in 1993, she began exploring notions of how women are visually portrayed in our culture. She creates assemblages and collages of fabric and papier mâché, using women’s clothing and odds and ends from around the house while often making reference to the childhood of young girls. Among her works, Sucreries et conte de fées (Galerie Verticale, Laval, 1999) demonstrates the artist’s commitment to exposing social and sexual stereotypes in an ironic manner as well as questioning how a woman’s identity is shaped.
