Annick Bouvattier

Bordeaux From 31 May to 21 June 2019

Presentation
Annick Bouvattier was born in Nevers in the mid sixties.
Her father, a paediatrician and art lover, gave her the passion for painting since her early childhood.

In 1982, after graduating with a science major, she broke away from the family patern of medical education to enrol at the "Berçot - Marie Rucki" school of fashion where, for two years, she trained as a stylist. Her work was then exhibited in Paris and at the Villa Médicis in Rome, and was praised by professionals and published in specialised press.

However, she was more attracted by the performing aspect of fashion than haute-couture, and chose film and advertising. As a stylist and costume-maker, she used to work at Cinecitta in Rome. From her italian experience, she has kept the deep, warm and sensual colours - sun-filled ochres, velvety reds, intense blues and deep greens.

At the beginning of 1990, she decided to turn to painting exclusively.
After two years of self-taught research, she became, from 1992 to 1996, Pierre Ramel's student and a disciple of Mac Avoy's who taught her the technique of knife painting with oil, which she uses with a smooth and thin touch to create transparency.

Annick Bouvattier paints women, often alone, in almost empty flats only furnished by shadows and light. They are young and pretty, embracing freely their femininity, unconcerned by the look of others.

Large canvases, close-up compositions, the work of Annick Bouvattier invents spaces where the picturial rhymes with the emotional.
