Intuitive methods discovered by experience: trained in the Asian arts, & nbsp; Muriel Besnard focuses on the use of breath, on the intensity of presence and on the commitment of the body necessary for the release of the gesture. The implementation of the breath-breath and the act of painting become inseparable. The hand takes power: to attach to the posture, to the anchoring on the ground, to the links between the movements of the breath and the full Disposted from the gestures. This thus occurs an alchemical relationship to matter. The spirit of the Tao prints its trace and each painting is experienced as an initiatory journey. Vive according to the spirit of the valley: this consists in marrying the moving flow of reality to better evoke the telluric energy of Shan Shui (Litt. Mountains & amp; waters). A successful work gives a concrete appearance to this contemplative state which can only be reached and shared by art and poetry. With an intention but aimlessly: to launch on the sheet as one throws ourselves into the water. The project is developed as the process progresses. From the creative dialogue will be born the work, line after line, touches after touch, to compose a harmonic whole which will be more than the sum of its parts. The creations of Muriel Besnard say the evanescence of things: veil and reveal, to emerge and blur. Farmastic distant opens on the vastness, thus releasing breathing spaces. The perspective is atmospheric, the points of view are multiple to evoke this nature of which we are only an expression. It is a question of exploring its innumerable potentials and its fluent and fluid forms.
