History

Yechel Gagnon was born in Longueuil (Québec) in 1973. She began her studies at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, then received a Master's degree in visual arts at Concordia University in Montréal in 2000. Since 1996, she has participated in many collection exhibitions as well as doing solo exhibitions in Québec, Ontario and France. The quality of her work was awarded with scholarships and prizes. Her pieces currently lie in private and museum collections. Notably in the Nova Scotia Museum of Fine Arts, the Gotland Museum of Fine Arts (Sweden), the Osler Hoskins & Harcourt collection in Toronto.
In 1996, while studying in Ontario, Gagnon discovered the infinite qualities that plywood's stratifications had to offer. She also discovered Paterson Ewen's artwork that same year at the Ontario Museum of Fine Arts. Though she mostly sculpts in plywood, Gagnon also used other techniques such as drawing, engraving and installation. In her artistic work, she explores the tension between what is natural and artificial. Her pieces are often very spacious and evoke timeless moment of introspection and getting in touch with nature.
