Maude Arsenault 's work is very influenced by the feminist question and the relationship women have with their own body. Through her photographs, she explores the themes of eroticism, nudity, beauty and transitional moments associated with puberty and the exploration of sexuality. Maude is thus working to create fictions, distilled from the real, featuring adolescents and young women as subjects, organized in the form of tableaux or portraits. The artist explores the traces of the unconscious during childhood and their possible transpositions in adult life.

Maude's photographs offer a delicate point of view revealing the intimate universe of her subjects, drawing a thin line between voyeurism and candour.  At the center of her photographic works there's young girls exposed to explore subjects related to identity and perception often altered in today's society. 

Using the medium of photography since her beginnings, Maude has recently begun the exploration of other art forms such as video, installation and painting.
