ABOUT ME

A few years ago, painting and selling my works as you go, I was stifling in the opacity and format of the canvases. I then imagined other path where to mix tradition and innovation. The sudden idea of adding today's tools to paint and draw to my traditional painting, offering both of them new perspectives, seemed to me luminous. The search to mastering these new techniques took me years. Working on transparency, layers, inks, harmonizing the fades, shaping the matter to obtain depth, energy, fluidity, movement, transparency, imagining how to project the shadow of my painting on the wall, learning the properties of different media ... and transforming my painted work, lightening it, restructuring it, creating it on new materials. A fascinating and demanding journey as, in the end, the realization of the work - Single direct draw on Plexiglas - often requires more than a hundred hours. If you look at my works on your screen, please remember that the white parts are actually transparent. In the general opinion, it is an irresistible attraction. Critic speaks of a strong work, initiating an inner journey. In the opinion of collectors, elegant settings are suitable, places and works benefiting from mutual enhancement. www.Catherine-de-Saugy.com
