She graduated from Concordia University with honours after completing a bachelor's degree in fine arts with a major in photography. Since 2017, she teaches photography at Cégep du Vieux Montréal. She has participated in several exhibitions and events throughout Canada and abroad, including at Guatephoto, the contemporary photography festival of Guatemala, Parcours Photo Sherbrooke, in collaboration with the Musée des beaux-arts de Sherbrooke and ÊTRE… en 2018, at La Maison de la culture Maisonneuve. She received an honourable mention for the Montreal Emerging Photography Award 2017. Her work is part of private collections including the HBC Foundation, Art-in-Buildings Collection of New York and the Collection Auer in Switzerland.
The work of Catherine Aboumrad is a statement of opulence, absence, organization and restriction. In a respectful approach, the landscape lends itself freely, and relates essentially to this manifestation of space. Influenced by time and chance, the artist before her environment remains in a constant state of wonderment throughout the creative process. There is an important performative aspect to it; the act of photographing is as part of the creation as the image it produces.
