Anne Marie Dumouchel is a Gatineau–Ottawa based multi-disciplinary artist that works in primarily in photography. Favouring alternative methods to creating photographs, Dumouchel pushes the boundaries of what is photography by working with in cyanotypes, digital manipulations, image appropriations primarily through scanning. By abandoning traditional camera techniques she is able to directly manipulate, intervene, and subvert the images from their imbued cultural meaning into nuanced visual abstractions.
Anne Marie Dumouchel has developed her practice between Ottawa, Gatineau, and Montreal. She holds a Masters of Fine Arts from the University of Ottawa, where she is now a part time professor in Photography at the department of Visual Arts. She has received Ontario and Quebec Art Council Grants, is the recipient of the Michel Goulet Prize, and has held residencies at the Banff Centre for the Arts. Her work has exhibited across Canada, and internationally in Finland. Dumouchel’s artworks are part of various private collections and she is represented by PDA Projects.
