Amélie Ducommun is a French-Swiss artist born in 1983 graduate from « Les Arts Décoratifs » Paris (ENSAD) and the School of Fine Arts in Barcelona.
At 32 she has already achieved more than 60 exhibitions in different countries (France, Spain, USA, China, Italy, Switzerland ...) and participated in various art fairs (Estampa, DEARTE ...) and biennial (Beijing, Dakar).

In 2009 Amelie passes the competition of the Academy of France in Madrid to represent the French painting in Spain for two years at the "Casa de Velázquez »; she realized and exhibited in numerous shows and galleries his work on « Paysages en mouvements » and « Paysages Furtivos ». Following these two years in Spain she was invited by the Miro Foundation in Majorca to produce works that interact with the landscape of the island in the Summer Studio of Joan Miro. She worked on streams for 4 months and two of her works were acquired and are exposed by the Foundation, « El Rio Negro" and "El Rio Rojo ». She will be the same year Prizewinner of « Prix Georges Wildenstein » .

Amélie Ducommun was selected to represent France in the 9th painting games of the Francophonie
in Nice where she won the silver medal. In 2014 she was invited to celebrate 50 years of diplomatic relations between France and China through many exhibitions in China (Beijing, Shanghai ...). In 2015 she exhibited her work in China, UK and Portugal, with different galleries that represents her work. Amélie Ducommun is painting for almost always, nature has always captivated, inspired her works.

The origin of his work lies mainly in a questioning of memory, perception of landscape and the interrelationship of natural elements. Each light of a country, a place offering it a special harmony. She must search for that light at each location, discover, apprehend. It is in this sense that she love to travel, to find his first impression on things. To do this she needs to regularly undock her daily, to always have a fresh look. She finds the first sensation, the feeling that the landscape she met expressed a truth. She has this need in their work to arrive at a neutral place, or virgin where everything needs to be feel for the first time. Therefore, moving from place to place, she always seeks the feeling of renewal. The trip allows her to create, when unlike the daily shut her up in comfort and technical familiarity.

Her works over the last ten years has focused on water and aquatic landscapes and began in France in front of the grand spectacle of marine landscapes of the Atlantic coast, later in the more intimate, rivers and mountain in France and Spain. The memory of water is left by the more or less ephemeral footprints in other elements. Earth, rock, wind, are the memories of these flows.

On the island of Ouessant (Bretagne), where she lived for a year, she began a work entitled « Estran ». She has made a hundred pieces that speak of the part of the beach, constantly covered and uncovered by the marée. this is a constantly changing space, in perpetual motion. The movement has become synonymous with life for her and she decided to concentrate her researches there, for many years. During her stay of two years in residence at the "Casa de Velázquez", she shifted permanently cutting through the landscapes of Spain to produce two series « Paysages en mouvements » and « Paysages Furtivos ».

She has worked in Extramadura, in the Mancha and in the surrounding landscape of Madrid « Pedriza », always around rivers or lakes. Following this residence, she was invited by Miro Foundation in Mallorca to realize several works in interaction with the landscape of Majorca. These works are the fruit of research on rivers and streams, they speak about the footprints of two elements: water and stone.

Since, she carries out series between the Aude and the Gironde in France and works mainly on the
musicality of painting. She explores the colorful sounds with muted tones caused by the rustle of air over water. Amélie decided to penetrate the surface of the water, dive, imagine the bottom of these aquatic
movements and noises.
Number of Amelie works are in collections, museums and institutions (Casa de Velazquez, Miro
Foundation, Namoc ...)
