    Synesthète & Chorégraphe de la Couleur
    Sophie Chir vit et travaille à Paris.

    Inspirée par l‘univers des mangas et du street art ainsi que par son expérience au sein de la Maison Lemarié - célèbre dans l'univers de la haute couture notamment pour la réalisation de l'iconique Camélia de Chanel, Sophie Chir réalise des toiles à la fois abstraites et florales, qui ne sont pas sans évoquer la calligraphie.

    Le geste pictural de l'artiste consiste à frapper, projeter au couteau la peinture, afin d’organiser des "Collisions" colorées. Telle une balle lancée, la peinture voltige, rebondit, se juxtapose, ou se superpose, créant une infinité de détails, mais aussi de reliefs et de contrastes aménageant plans et profondeurs qui explorent la 3e dimension.

    L'expérimentation va plus loin, car les oeuvres de l'artiste nous font partager une expérience sensorielle autant rythmique que sensuelle, qui tient de la capacité de Sophie d'associer, de manière involontaire et automatique, un son à une couleur ; car l'artiste est synesthète, comme le fut Wassily Kandinsky.

    Ce phénomène neurologique rare connecte en effet deux sens. Ici la musique – nécessaire au processus de création de l’artiste – est transformée en couleur. Grâce à cette particularité, Sophie Chir nous livre des chorégraphies visuelles riches en couleurs et en émotions.

Sophie Chir

France Born in: 1964 Emergent Artist
Sophie Chir lives and works in Paris.

Her abstract paintings are meaning and dynamic, her colours are cheerful and blazing. Every painting sounds a musical score, the one that the artist listened to for hours, before and during its realization, because Sophie is a synaesthete, like Wassily Kandinsky or Arthur Rimbaud, for instance. This rare neurological phenomenon connects two senses. Here music - necessary for the artist’s creative process - is transformed into colour.

Sophie Chir collides her colours, hence the name "Colliding" that she has given to her paintings, but not only, because every painting is also the reflection because every painting is also the reflection of what lives the artist : a time, a mood, whom she lets speak through the sensorial experience of the music and the color.

Choreographer of colors, Sophie Chir immerses us literally in her compositions.
