Laurie Landry

Themes: Disability

Laurie M. Landry is a Deaf Canadian contemporary artist. Her work focuses on contemporary portraiture of marginalized subjects such as those who are Deaf or living with a disability. In her figurative art, she is currently exploring the corporeality of heterogeneous bodies. She is particularly intrigued by the ways in which the hands and bodies can communicate an idea without speaking. Landry has participated in guided artist residencies across Canada and her work has been shown in art galleries across British Columbia. She has also curated a group show featuring figurative works by contemporary female artists exploring themes of youth and aging bodies. She holds a Certificate in Fine Arts Techniques from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and has been awarded Canada Council for the Arts grants to support her art practice. She is working on her upcoming two-person show in Vancouver in 2023 and a solo show in Toronto in 2024. Landry currently lives and works in Vancouver on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tseil-Waututh) Nations.
