Originally from the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Karine Guyon has had the opportunity to live and exhibit in many major Canadian cities such as Vancouver, Toronto and Ottawa as well as in Barcelona, Spain. She is currently working as a full time artist in Montreal. Her paintings can be found in both private and public collections across Canada including the Porter Housing Society Collection and the Simon Fraser University Art Collection in Vancouver, BC. From 2015 to 2017, Guyon was awarded several private art grants and an Emerging Artist Grant in Visual Art for her collaborative installation entitled ‘‘Kaleidoscopy’’ and from the Ontario Arts Council for her ‘‘Spatial Landscape’’ series respectively. In 2018 Guyon’s was selected to have the first blacklight exhibition at the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology, in Canada’s capital city of Ottawa.


In 2016, I started working on a body of work, which incorporates ultraviolet and invisible fluorescent raw pigments, with traditional painting mediums such as oil paints and beeswax. Inspired by the underground electronic music scene, the idea was to use luminescent colors and fuse them into a contemporary visual experience in virtue of versatile abstract paintings.

In the electromagnetic spectrum, ultraviolet light emits shorter wavelength than that of the color spectrum which implies higher frequency and energy. When traditional painting mediums are combined with ultraviolet light storing colors and short wavelengths, the result is the creation of paintings emitting light and energy.

Inspired by the work of Kandinsky, and Klint, I am drawn to abstraction by an awareness of the spirituality of energies in the material world. For me combining abstraction to technologically advanced light emitting materials is a necessary way of depicting a transcendent reality that has the possibility of bringing the viewer into an alternate reality and awakening.
