Collet Christine

  • Switzerland
Quote from Confucius: "Happiness is not at the top of the mountain, but in how to climb."
Born in Bern, granddaughter of a painter, she shared part of her childhood with him. Life gave her the opportunity to travel the world, to live for a few years in South Korea and Central America. From her many travels, she has filled her luggage with scents from elsewhere, colors, impressions, and emotions. Her stay in Mexico allowed her to follow a training in a free workshop for 3 years, to discover the oil painting, acrylic, structure which will be the starting point for a long and fascinating research in order to translate her impressions on a canvas. Over time her path has crossed that of formidable artists who each in their own way have left her with precious lessons, in order to gradually build her personal style and expression.
Christine is always on the lookout for new techniques, in order to refine and acquire a broader, more subtle sense of her expression. She constantly keeps an eye and an open mind. Painting is like wanting to write or sing. She searches for the word, the color or the expression in order to translate as closely as possible her relationship to life, to people, to feelings. Each painting is a part of itself, a piece of its history, a reflection or a thought on life. As inspired by working with materials as by working on the subject, Christine takes her time soaking up the chosen theme before she starts a canvas. The artist blends acrylic with pigments, sand and even tar to give texture and colour to her impressions before sharing them with her audience.
