Biography

Genevieve Elliot-Moretto was born in 1948. She lives and works near Paris. She studied at the Applied Arts School and at the École du Louvre and frequented the living model studio of the Grande Chaumière in Paris, before becoming a teacher of Plastic Arts in Seine-Saint-Denis, in 1992. She exhibited regularly in France and abroad, in cultural institutions or galleries. In 2014, she participated in a project of the Musée du Quai Branly.

Geneviève Elliot-Moretto explores a human condition or comedy, that we both suffer from and sublimate. The artist steers the light of another possible world over the darkness of the depths.

Through effects of colors and materials, the subject irradiates and surprises the viewers. It plays with them and even manipulates them. No certainties, just questions and an invitation to exchange ideas. Suffering is not said, it is a common, visceral link.

Forever close to us, it passes through the hearts and bodies, wrapped in in a shell. Geneviève Elliot touches the skins to dissect the souls. The expression is born from the flesh, from silhouettes. An audacious chromatic choice is part of the dramaturgy of the compositions.

Committed to figuration, the artist's work with its timeless style is marked by her interest in the body and all their moods. Through them, she reveals, without concessions, his contemporaries. It is not surprising, that she says that she is influenced by artists such as Francis Bacon, Berlinde De Bruyckere as well as by Rembrandt or Bruegel.
