"This paintings is part of a series that combines the figurative with surreal elements into aesthetically pleasing paintings and explore the moments of transformation, which occur as we evolve into the people we are meant to be. Important to my vision is that the deliberate action of the individual is required to make lasting changes and this is a raw and emotional experience. The curatorial statement of "Journey of the Soul" could have been written for this artwork series, the themes are so closely matched.

'Make Room' represents the transformative power of new knowledge and how letting go of past beliefs makes room for new ways of knowing and being. The burning books represent how changing what you think you know can be a destructive force that is painful but it makes way, just as does a forest fire, for new growth and life after that transformative moment passes. Something might be lost but something is also gained. The lighter shows the role of the individual in the transformation."

Canadian artist Andrea Filiatrault believes in the transformative power of making and viewing art and really enjoys trying to find ways to work out and express her ideas and history. She paints images of her body in scenes designed to evoke feelings of vulnerability and resilience at the moment of transformation. Also, the subjects in Filiatrault's paintings practice escapism, avoidance, obsessive behaviour, self examination and critique, but ultimately evolve.

Andrea Filiatrault has been training as an artist for over 10 years with private instructors and is currently enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts in Fine Art program at the University of Waterloo. Andrea Filiatrault is also the program manager for the Grand River Artist Collective, a group of over 100 Waterloo Region artists with professional and developing practices. The goal of our organization is to provide opportunities for working artists and build community.
