Amélie Grooscors



Amélie Grooscors obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University where she graduated with Distinction. She received a certificate from the Arts Students League of New York City and has apprenticed with contemporary artists Gavin Sewell, Leopold Poltek, Lenny Lyons Bruno, and Susan Romaine. Additionally, she was the recipient of the Carolyn and Richard Renaud Bursary. Grooscors’s style is heavily influenced by her Latin and French Canadian roots as well as her travels abroad. Her earlier works are a reflection of the glitter and gloom of urban landscapes; the rundown splendor found in and around industrial spaces. After traveling extensively throughout Europe and South America, she was left with a heightened awareness and appreciation of the forms and colors observed in the natural landscape. Her current series explores the never ending beauty of the organic universe as seen through the prism of abstraction. Her work is often described as a clash between two visual realities; the organic world and the contrived. Grooscors’s work has been exhibited in numerous exhibitions across the US and Canada.
