Catherine Villermé


Daughter of an animal painter who transmitted her passion for color and matter to her, Catherine Villermé is on the border of imagination and reality in an unstable balance between figurative and abstraction. The emotional evolution of the 'Figurative abstract: a work of art moved after an abstract exploration period, Catherine Villermé finally opted for a figurative style to transcribe the emotions, dreams and memories that inhabit it. For her, emotion must take up all the place in its artistic creation, which materializes through landscapes transposed by an inner vision, imprint of surreal and sometimes even unconscious worlds. The figurative painting is a real means of expression for the 'Artist, who seeks above all to tell an emotional story. To give life to her pictorial projects, Catherine plunges into a musical environment conducive to the progressive construction of a story based on feelings. & Nbsp; she believes in the importance of impulses, listening to a vibration, A detail that awakens an emotion. The canvas, for her, reveals something that we wear in ourselves but which we did not know everything before starting to paint. A successful technique & nbsp; in order to give life to her pictorial project, the artist Catherine Villermé chooses to use the 'Oil as a material. This substance which dries slowly allows him to work over a long period, without time constraint. Armed with her brushes, spatulas and rags, she invests her workshop to explore the raw material of the canvas. It covers, scratches, lets its inner impulses reveal on the virgin support. & Nbsp; Catherine Villermé draws her inspirations from the landscapes, the souvenirs of loneliness where the rare characters take a strong presence. Light is particularly worked by the artist in each of his creations. & Nbsp; in the constant research of her own identity, Catherine Villermé refuses to confine herself in a theory, preferring to speak freely through her painting.
