Interpretation of the work by the artist:

This work represents the anonymity of the city. Being born in a small village where everyone knows everyone else, the enigmatic town, where everyone wanders alone, paradoxically inspires me with a feeling of freedom but also of isolation.

Les citadins - Johanne Maheux

  • The world is her laboratory.

    In a figurative style close to social realism, an American artistic movement dating from the 1930s, Johanne Maheux expresses her vision of life through thematic series that are a pretext to paint the universe as she sees it.

    She is particularly interested in social realities and certain themes are recurrent in her works, especially the relationship that human beings have with time; the time that passes, the time that remains, the time that is lost, that we have too much of or that we no longer have... She is also interested in everything that concerns communication between humans, as evidenced by her series "Conversations".
