Marc Walter

Marc Walter is an artist who oriented his practice to environmental art (or land art) in 2004. Particularly prolific in his field, he won in 2007 the Grand prix d'excellence de la Fondation pour les arts, les lettres et la culture en Outaouais as well as its 2014 Jury Prize. He has been featured in many Canadian and international land art events. Marc has taken part in over 100 solo and group exhibitions both in galleries and in the context of outdoor nature art events.
   Marc Walter is intrigued by how the creation of a separate piece or space on a given location will alter the ability of a visitor to perceive an emotional response. Even for a short time, his visitors become dwellers, reflecting upon the site, its history, their own path and above all, their feelings. His artworks are site-specific. Discretion, respect and balance are key values that accompany his creative process at all times. His favourite projects include the participation of the public in the making of monumental collective ephemeral artworks. Marc gets the participants to experience all the creative steps of a process and renews the pleasures of working alongside Nature. His artworks are to be experienced!
