An initiative resulting from a joint commitment of the Philanthropic Activities Office and the Yvonne L. Bombardier Cultural Centre, the objective of the Yvonne L. Bombardier Graduate Scholarship Program in Visual Arts is to contribute to Québec’s next generation of artists.

The J. Armand Bombardier Foundation is proud to present the 5th recipient of the Yvonne L. Bombardier Graduate Scholarship in Visual Arts: Maude Corriveau.

A recent graduate of the Master program in Visual and Media Arts at Université du Québec à Montréal, Maude seduced the jury members with the originality of her discourse.Through hyperrealist works in which she represents and magnifies trinkets and disposable items, she questions the value we attribute to consumer objects. An admirable technician, the ease with which she practices trompe l’oeil and plays with light and shadows is remarkable.
