Des visages Art Show at the Victoria Tool Library

Des visages means “Faces” in French and is Bertie’s first collection of paintings. This style is heavily influenced by a painting in Bertie’s life growing up: a face made up of bold reds, greens, and yellows. This piece followed Bertie’s family as they moved from Quebec to British Columbia. To learn more about this influence, make sure to check out the show!

It is being shown at the Victoria Tool Library from November 2 to December 12 2023. Find the entrance at 750 Fairfield Rd.

Dana Johnson (She/He/They)

Dana Johnson, artist

Bertie (They/Them)

Portrait of Bertie, with hands up to their chin, looking up. There is a bush of daisies behind them
residing on unceded WSÁNEC and
Lakwanan territory

Bertie is a non-binary Québécois.e artist and photographer that thinks too much, feels loudly and strongly, and is addicted to vulnerability. All these things are the fuel for their creative process and they hope that their work will make you feel and think things too.
