Artist

Cheryl Rondeau

Cheryl Rondeau is a visual artist who works with both still and moving imagery to transform moments of transition and quotidian into the monumental, with the intent of exposing influences and mechanics that mediate representation, embodiment and subjectivity. Her practice can mimic investigative scientific methods, embrace the thievery of appropriation or inhabit the role of storyteller – in all cases, she collects, isolates and extracts specific gestures and moments constructing an intermix of the real and the fabricated. Her visual arrangements are rhythmic compilations of repetition and mimicry creating images of ambivalence and agency.

Born in St. Catharines (Canada), Cheryl Rondeau studied photography and video at the Ontario College of Art (Toronto), has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Social/Cultural Anthropology from the University of Toronto and recently completed an MFA at York University (Toronto). Her work has been included in exhibitions and festivals internationally including Festival international du film sur l’art (Montreal, Québec) Mediawave International Festival of Visual Arts (Gyor, Hungary), Scope Art Fair (New York) and Museum of Modern Art (Bogota, Colombia).
