Colour. Movement. Scale.

JACQUIE COMRIE

Jacquie Comrie is a multidisciplinary artist, whose vibrant body of work continues to leave its mark, transforming cityscapes in Canada and worldwide, into colourful, inclusive spaces in service of social healing, mental health through colour.

For over ten years, whether on buildings, large scale structures or canvases, her colour installations combine contemporary art with a wellness approach, utilizing scale, movement, and properties of colour as essential components to physically revitalize city spaces while making an impact on human emotion of its community. Through colour therapy research her palette is deliberately orchestrated aiming to uplift, repair, heal and inspire.

Colour is the language of emotion and with mental health issues on the rise in communities across the globe, her work is a contribution to mental health, aiming to improving quality of life, and mental wellbeing of all individuals.
