Karine Giboulo — All you can eat (détail), 2008.
Karine Giboulo was born in 1980 in Ste-Émélie de l'Énergie, she lives and works in Montreal. Giboulo creates colourful miniature worlds in which depictions of reality and flights of fantasy mingle. Her intricate sculpted scenes use pathos and humour to comment on the human condition and issues such as globalization, consumerism and the environment. The use of bright colours and the personification of animals give her work a childish and naive imprint which belies the often serious subject matter. The characters in Giboulo’s narratives maintain dignity in difficult circumstances and her critique of society and human nature is couched in playfulness.
Karine Giboulo is represented by the [sas] Gallery in Montreal.
