Odile Druhen

Born in: 1957


Odile Druhen was born in Besançon in 1957. She lives and works in Poitiers since 1982.

Her work is defined by subjective and narrative figuration. She prevents the subject (men, women - especially women) to succumb to stress and to the surrounding madness by painting anachronistic objects which are going to allow them to escape their fate.These miniature objects are, for the greater part, small toys that the children appropriate to imitate adults. They are here to disturb a tragedy, a tiredness, they are triggers of dreams, detachments, gaps.

Odile Druhen stages regularly her work through performances, becoming then an actress giving life to her paintings or her installations souped-up by music, sounds and texts.

"I dreamed to follow the courses of the School of Fine Arts but my parents were set against it. I am thus a pure self-taught artist. I was able to attend later on classes at the School of Fine Arts of Poitiers, but I did not find myself there. I explored painting at first. Now, I ally painting and volume. They call out to one another. I also feel great pleasure in performing with what I create."
