Origin: France

A painting flirting between figuration and abstraction. A very colorful work, marked by an abstract and colorful imaginary linear background, in which the subject becomes semi-figurative harmony.

His work is part of a singular artistic style recognizable by his compositions of flat contours of blacks and whites, his often dynamic colors, and a very personal dominant paw, which, whatever the subject, gives his paintings all their relief, their volume, and their dimension.

Corinne Vilcaz

France  • 1969

Born on July 1, 1969, Corinne Vilcaz is from Lot et Garonne, where she still lives, in the small city of Villeneuve sur Lot (47). From her childhood, she attended the workshops of the School of Fine Arts in Villeneuve sur Lot, where after trying various techniques, it was towards watercolor and oil painting that she eventually turned. .

While pursuing linguistic studies and international trade, she also attended several artists' workshops, notably watercolorists, where she learned to reveal the white of the paper ... and the contrasts of light and shadow. This will be decisive for his future oil paintings: let in white… and work on contrasts. And it is by participating in several oil painting workshops at the Beaux Arts of Villeneuve sur Lot, that she is brought to work on abstraction, an approach that reveals it to herself.

It is from there that his style, well recognizable today, gradually emerges, slowly revealing a contemporary figuration delicately divided between figuration of the subject and abstraction of backgrounds ...

It was then that after a few years sharing her professional life in import-export with her artistic passion, Corinne Vilcaz decided 18 years ago to quit her job, which nevertheless gave her all satisfaction, to open her workshop. and devote himself solely to his painting.

Listed by the international quotation guides Akoun and Artprice, Vilcaz is now exhibited in galleries all over France, Europe and as far as Japan, the United States and Korea.

Member of the Société Nationale des Beaux Arts de Paris (Snba), member and medalist of the Académie Arts Sciences et Lettres de France, Vilcaz has been exhibited for several years in the Grands Salons d'Art Parisiens at the Carrousel du Louvre (Salon National des Beaux Arts), and at the Grand Palais (Art en Capital).

His painting, although contemporary, is part of a tradition of so-called easel painting, marked by a suggested figuration, revealed by the dynamic colors that the artist uses, and the highlights of black and white contrasts that illuminate the whole. some cobweb.

A figurative painting, of course, but which flirts with an abstract background composition, marked by vertical lines and flat colors harmoniously linked to each other.

His well-recognizable style is part of this style also called "contemporary figuration", where everyone will find a bright red bouquet, a luminous navy, or even the distant Venetian memory of a gondola on the lagoon.

“Bordering on abstraction, the creations of Corinne Vilcaz, with their rugged white and deep black reliefs, combine red with ardor and flamboyance, offering us strong and sincere works. "
