Born in 1969 - France
Transforming the steel into roses is a great challenge. Cassie Texier cuts, sculpts, distorts and paints the metal in order to make “paintings” out of it. She makes use of the graphic value of the material, always in search of clean and minimal lines.
Born in Tassin-la- Demi-Lune, not far from Lyon, Cassie is a self-taught artist. At the age of 23 she started to teach visual arts at the Boulari School in Mont Dore, New Caledonia. But her passion for traveling and her thirst for discovery drove her to abandon the brushes and pencils, and she started making documentaries.
It is only in 2011 that her desire to express her emotions through visual arts brings her to work with the steel. The plasma cutting equipment and the welding torch become her artistic tools, and the grinder brings the last touch in order to highlight the volumes by playing with the light and the dark. Thanks to the colors of the paint, she brings softness and warmth to this graphic and sleek material. Each panel is like a battleship that she tears up and twists the best she can in order to give strength to colors and to and especially to the light, because many of her paintings illuminate from the inside, revealing a hidden richness.
Her art is both brut and graphic, taking us back to the basics...
