Jude Griebel is a Montreal-based painter whose work focuses on the negotiation of identity through images that are drawn from both fictional and biographical contexts. This theme is explored through the depiction of characters in allegorical and supernatural situations, navigating between factual and imagined worlds.  The liminal atmosphere of these works pays tribute to the transitory and mythical settings of picture book illustration, archival spirit photography, and theatrical stage design.  Past projects have involved documenting and illustrating folk mythology and oral narratives that emphasize the convergence of everyday life with the paranormal.
