Tognon, Lisa

Lisa Tognon graduated from l’Université du Québec à Montréal with a BFA and a Major in Printmaking. In 1998, she won the Loto-Québec Annual Print Competition and the Prix d’excellence of the Biennale L’Art et le Papier III, presented by Galerie Jean-Claude Bergeron. The same year, she was awarded the Prix Jacques-Cartier des Arts by the City of Lyon, France, on the occasion of the International Miniature Print Competition.

During the summer of 2009 she presented “Passages”, a solo exhibition, at La Maison des arts de Laval. A catalogue was published for the occasion with texts by René Viau, curator of the exhibition and Dorota Kozinska, art critic. “Passages” was presented at the Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul and at the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke.

Lisa Tognon is an artist with tremendous potential. Highly original, her works show a solid pictural discipline and an impressive mastery of the printmaking techniques. The quality and uniqueness of her work place her in the elite group of Quebec’s printmakers.
