Biography of Pearl LEVY

 

BIOGRAPHY

Born and educated in Montreal, Pearl Levy graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from Université du Québec à Montréal. She had actively pursued an earlier career in drawing and painting, and then gravitated to the “three dimensional experience” of sculpture.

She has had numerous succesfull exhibitions and her works are now well represented in private collections both in Canada, the U. S. and Spain.

Her works also reside in the executive offices of Canadian and American corporations.

Pearl has, for many years, enjoyed an intellectually rewarding career in the realm of teaching to both anglophones and francophones in the greater Montreal area.

The artist works with different coloured marble that she acquires from both Europe and North America. Her warm feminine sculptures with soft flowing lines, or her geometric figures, all manage to reflect the diversity of women around the world, and yet, their common experience. Pearl also includes in her collection several different coloured figures in bronze, big and small size works highly polished and rough, creating a sense of harmony and balance.
