Marie- Claude looks.
She listens. The vibe.
She admires. Bodies.
She discovered. Time, space.
She imagines. Her dreams.
Then she painted tirelessly, with unprecedented accuracy this time, this drive, this "right - to – heart" that drives each of his paintings.
Drawing his inspiration from everyday scenes, but always with raw emotion, the artist represents the modern woman in its environment as it is sleek, urban or dynamic. The woman who wears all the hopes and disappointments. Strong woman, sexy, sweet, sensual, passionate and independent.
Painted in acrylic, each table is treated differently, with an undeniable attention and attention to detail to express realism. Using mediums such as ash or modeling paste brings the whole depth of field, a suitable texture to the subjects of his work. The colors, which are often and willingly tarnished with ashes, complete the composition and contribute to disorders atmosphere environments.
The subject, a woman of a thousand faces , is an obvious paradox between on the one hand the sweetness of her femininity and her role as seductive, and secondly , melancholy and coldness of its environment, juxtaposed in the background . Charged with shadows and contrasting lights, the works offer an amazing feeling that captivates us, enchants.
In short, the artist is given as to never have to sleep a portrait of the woman of today complex and simple at the same time. A woman that future generation will contemplate with envy as we contemplate today than in the past.
