Chantal Khoury engages with history, personal archives and postcolonial theory for paintings to display transformation. In her practice, creation is an act of homemaking by abstracting inherited forms into portrayals of diaspora experiences. Of Lebanese descent and born on the unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi’kmaq First Nations (N.B.), she currently lives in Tkaronto (Toronto) following thirteen years in Tiohtià:ke (Montreal). Collections include the Royal Bank of Canada, the Art Gallery of Guelph and the University of New Brunswick.
