quill The Artist

Portrait Franc AmadieuFrançoise Amadieu is a painter who works with paper and corrugated board first. His artworks are exhibited in France and abroad and in many private collections and even a museum in Japan. She live on the Southwest of France (Gers) since five years
In creation, when we talked of material, color, composition, subject, everything has been said since there is not to say more, but to feel.
Still the support this great forgotten. Why canvas, paper, wood, glass, metal ...?

And why not the corrugated board?
Cardboard, first it sounds good, then there is its material, its color, its surface virgate, and then its light weight, strength and sensuality. Yes, the cardboard is first of sensuality. The softness of her touch, the vibration of the cutting, shaping its flexibility ... this does not prevent the strength and resistance of the artwork or the object constructed.

I've always loved paper-cloth layer and kraft. I discovered the cardboard in a design contest and painting. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the material commonly used for packing for use ephemeral then discarded.
When the card is ready for the artist and shaped to his hand, his flute looks great and it feels grow wings. Randomly my artistic path I discovered this material that I was in full correspondence. He became my preferred medium, and my creations have therefore taken off.

I worked a long time on paper, since the Fine Arts. I loved the kraft paper (which covers precisely the corrugated cardboard). Then, about eight years ago, I participated in an art competition organized by a manufacturer of cardboard furniture. I painted a screen and a chair. My chair was purchased by a museum in Japan. His work area, digging his ribs, cut, bend ... I immediately knew that this would be my medium of creation. I later learned that many famous artists have worked on paper (De Staël, Matisse, Picasso, Bonnard, etc.).
This material proved to be poor a rich, subtle, malleable. I found the material support of my creation. I used to paint the surface and then I went into the deep sculpting his ribs, bending, cutting it to play with light. For conservation work in the time I glued the cardboard to plywood to ensure rigidity and have varnished to protect it from air and moisture. I looked for a ultra matt lacquer which can maintain the quality appearance of cardboard. With a specialist varnish I could find the ideal product that provides optimum protection and sustainable development.

Info +: The Mirande Museum (Gers) has acquired one of its paintings for its collection.

Françoise Amadieu is therefore permanently present in 3 museums: Japan, Switzerland and France.
