About Agnes Jorgensen

Agnes Jorgensen is an award-winning artist living in Sainte-Anne-Des-Lac, Quebec, Canada. She attended the Academy of Realist Art where she acquired her skills to create figurative oil paintings that fuse Old-Master techniques with a contemporary narrative style.

Agnes was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. At the age of 24 she picked up her first set of paints and discovered how exciting and rewarding it was to delve into her emotions and express herself on canvas. Her process of layering rich, vibrant colors with soft gestures creates an expression of feminine softness, harmony and depth in her oil paintings.

Agnes explains «The heart of my work is to take those subtle ideas from deep within, bring them to life on canvas and touch one’s soul with emotion».

Her success began early when she won Best in Oils and Honourable Mention for her first International Juried Art Show. She won the hearts of Manitobans with her Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Print and her bejeweled bear, Bling Bling, a CancerCare Manitoba project.

Agnes Jorgensen’s artwork is part of private collections throughout the world. She has received special commissions and top awards for her artwork. Agnes was awarded a commission from the Manitoba Metis Federation to paint a figurative portrait of Prime Minister Paul Martin. Her painting was presented in the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario.

She has received several national and international awards and many publications have featured her and her art including the Important World Artists 2014 Vol.1.

The artist has participated in four exhibitions at Manitoba Art Expo and has had solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in Canada including those held at the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, Ontario; the Regional Museum of Vaudreuil-Soulanges, Quebec; the Leonardo da Vinci Centre, Montreal; and the Toronto Art Expo, Ontario. In New York she has exhibited her artwork at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel and the Rockefeller Center.

Agnes and her spouse Andre Chatelain founded a non-profit organization Painting a New World. Through the sales of their artwork, they support artists in Africa and Haiti, helping to create positive changes in their communities. In 2009, they were presented the Humanity Art Award from the Academie Internationale des Beaux-Arts du Quebec.

À propos d'Agnes Jorgensen

Agnes Jorgensen est une artiste primée vivant à Sainte-Anne-Des-Lac, Québec, Canada. Elle a fréquenté The Academy of Realist Art où elle a acquis ses compétences pour créer des oeuvres à l’huile qui fusionnent les techniques des grands maîtres avec un style narratif contemporain.

Agnes est née à Winnipeg, au Manitoba. À l’âge de 24 ans, elle a réalisé sa première série de peintures et a découvert à quel point il était excitant et gratifiant de se plonger dans ses émotions et de s’exprimer sur une toile. Son processus de superposition de couleurs riches et vibrantes avec des gestes légers crée une expression de douceur féminine, d’harmonie et de profondeur dans ses oeuvres.

Agnes explique «Le cœur de mon travail est de prendre ces idées au plus profond de moi, de les faire vivre sur toile et de toucher l’âme de chacun avec émotion».

Son succès a commencé tôt lorsqu’elle a remporté le prix Best in Oils et une mention d’honneur lors de son premier International Juried Art Show. Elle a conquis le cœur des Manitobains avec son Ducks Unlimited Sponsor Print et son ours orné de bijoux, Bling Bling, un projet de Cancercare Manitoba.

Agnes a reçu une commande de la Fédération Métis du Manitoba pour peindre le portrait du Premier ministre Paul Martin. Sa peinture a été présentée au Musée des beaux-arts du Canada, Ottawa, Ontario.

Elle a reçu plusieurs prix nationaux et internationaux et de nombreuses publications l’ont présentée ainsi que son art, notamment la revue Important World Artists 2014 Vol.1

L’artiste a participé à quatre expositions de Manitoba Art Expo et a eu plusieurs expositions individuelles et collectives dans des galeries et des musées au Canada, y compris celles du Musée des beaux-arts du Canada, Ottawa, Ontario; le Musée régional de Vaudreuil-Solanges, Québec; le Centre Leonardo da Vinci, Montréal; et le Toronto Art Expo, Ontario. À New York elle a exposé ses œuvres au Waldorf-Astoria Hotel et au Rockefeller Center.
