Her constant probing of volume and her natural desire to manipulate raw materials have naturally led Mélanie Giguère to the development of a unique technique , the Foldart, that involves manipulating and folding the canvas of her paintings during the process of creation. This way, she adds a sculptural element that brings a 3D aspect to what is essentially a 2D medium.  This technique animates the subject, adding to it a dynamic element that suggests that it is striving to break-free from the clutches of its habitual frame.
