Virginie Negre

Born in 1959 - France


Virginie Negre was born in Bayonne on the 21st November, 1959. A budding artist, the little girl drew on all mediums within reach, like walls, floors, school books...A former student of Monique Baroni, she inherited an ingenuity which makes her colors vibrate, in layer-material. At the age of 38, Virginie Negre decided to turn a chapter in her professional life and dedicate herself to painting entirely. Her studio/gallery at Rue de l'église in Antony is a warm place to gather, a place filled with true exchanges between artists. She organizes her "boeufs", musical evenings around themes, where each one makes their contribution for the pleasure of taste buds or senses.

Her passion orients her artistic work: jazz (she plays her favorite on the saxophone), great wine, her family and her friend circle...But painting is her favorite means to increase her elation by a tenfold. A radiance of colors envelop precise strokes. Unlike her paintings of horses or bulls, which emanate passion and the inner energy of the artist. The artist attests "....I paint woman's sensuality seen by a woman, but when my subject is a bull or a horse, I try to render it through a movement, the masculine musculature and feminine curves....I like to combine a figurative part on the canvas with a more abstract aspect, this way there is room for imagination". Virginie Negre creates her paintings through the association of materials. Her reliefs are sculptural and urge us to touch them. She mixes pigment, acrylic with padding.

Virginie Negre has been exhibiting her work since 1990, in at least fifteen galleries around France and abroad. In 2010, the artist was honored like the other 150 European contemporary artists of the moment in « Art Nude Today ».
