AnnickBouvattier paints women, often alone, in almost empty flats only furnished by shadows and light. They are young and pretty, embracing freely their femininity, unconcerned by the look of others.
From her italian experience in Roma, she has kept the deep, warm and sensual colours, sun-filled ochres, velvety reds, intense blues and deep greens.
Large canvases, close-up compositions, the work of AnnickBouvattier invents spaces where the picturial rhymes with the emotional.
She masters the technique of knife painting with oil, which she uses with a smooth and thin touch to create transparency.
“The woman has always been the first subject of painting of humanity. Over generations, the painters were able to highlight the different transformations of the woman’s body. My paintings fit totally in the world in which we live, in our present.”
