Using my imagination to paint nature.
Artist StatementMy oil paintings are abstract. The image evolve in layers. I move a fluid mix of oil paint, varnish, and turpentine over the canvas and brushwork in layers. In creating them, I continue to explore a technique I discovered many years ago that is analogous to the geological processes of sedimentation and erosion that shape the earth. I prepare my oils in a liquid form, each color in a separate container.

One by one, I pour them on the horizontal canvas, moving it gently and carefully to direct the flow of the paint and control the blending of the colors. Due to the need for the paint to dry before I add the next layer, I work on several paintings at the same time. Layers are added and sometimes partially effaced, over and over, as often as is necessary for the piece to emerge in an incarnation that compels me to stop. In this way, the painting reveals itself over time, making its own sense, discovering its own soul.
Artist BiographyFrench-born American artist Annette received her MFA from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. She also studied at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City. After showing her work extensively in France, she set up her studio in Oberlin, OH.
“Every painting is a sort of intimate dance with matter and primordial gestures, a dialogue between my will and the chemical reaction of the colors, their disappearance and their reemergence in new incarnations. The painting reveals itself with time. It makes its own sense, discovers its soul.”
