Nathalie Dumontier works the material, the pigment, and created colored canvases in an abstract and lyrical style. Navigating a deeply vibrating turquoise in black, it releases the gesture and lets the sensations explode in intense canvases. Between shade and light games Born in 1964 in Eure-et-Loir, Nathalie Dumontier developed two passions in her youth: sport and painting. Sports educator for 20 years, she decided in 2006 to leave everything and devote herself entirely to painting. In 2008, she followed a stained glass formation that enabled her to enrich her creativity and technique. She finds in the work of the glass, the games of shadow and light, transparency and opacity that she works in her painting. The technique is different as well as the angle of attack, but the approach is resolutely the same, the two expressions complement each other. Release the gesture and feelings Nathalie Dumontier regularly exhibits her paintings and glass pieces in individual and collective exhibitions. The non-figuration allows him to free himself from conveniences and rules, to deepen his pictorial research to say something, to speak freely: it is a way to say. She sleeps on the canvas the strata of her memories, her state changes, her impressions, all the sensations they have left in her by bringing matter or on the contrary of fluidity to her painting. Opacity and transparency clash, feelings are jostling, oppose. This work nourishes her, gives her pleasure, also torments her, forces her to go further, to explore her deepest disorders.
