Canadian artist and composer Jamie Drouin (b. 1970) creates contemplative and minimalist artworks influenced by landscapes and ecological processes.

Developed through the application of countless thin layers of pigment, Drouin leads the viewer into a state of stillness and introspection on the often overlooked subtle patterns and muted textures found in the natural world. His resulting small-scale paintings create a quietly charged and private experience between the viewer, the visual depth of the material surfaces, and the wall it rests on.

Drouin’s visual art has been featured in solo exhibitions in Japan, Hong Kong, Canada, Germany, and Kazakhstan, while his parallel work as a composer and sound artist has appeared at international venues such as the Henry Art Gallery, Biennial of the Americas, Mutek, and TodaysArt. He has also collaborated with artists including David Sylvian, Lance Austin Olsen, Lucio Capece, and John Tilbury.

In 2001, Drouin co-founded Infrequency Arts with artist Lance Austin Olsen as a platform for publishing their collaborative works in both sound and visual art.

Jamie Drouin lives with his wife in Oak Bay, BC, traditional territory of the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples.
