Bourdet Sabine

  • France
  • Painter / Plastician
When I paint, I gradually come into contact with my characters, they look at me, I smile at them, we understand each other!
A late blooming painter, Sabine experienced the revelation shortly after the birth of her second daughter. Previously a tour guide, she had to end the career which had become difficult to coordinate with family life. As Sabine already liked to devote herself to creative activities during her spare time, - especially doing “DIY” with odd objects that she found here and there – it is only natural that she decided to sign up for a painting workshop in 2012. Meeting the Toulon painter Nicolas Benedetti, two years older than her, was crucial. Over three years, he taught her the different techniques of how to work the materials, allowing her to discover peculiar art, and thus guiding her towards the creation of her own characters and the birth of her own personal pictorial language.
Playing with materials, which are her main source of inspiration, is at the heart of Sabine’s practice. Mixing substances to better highlight their individual and collective specificities, the painter composes her works from wood, metal, fabric, paper, sand, earth, sawdust, coffee, plaster, concrete etc. in an ever renewed desire to give a second life to recycled materials. Subsequently, she reworked her compositions with oil or acrylic paint that she enhances by using gesso to scratch after drying. Once the background is complete, Sabine tackles the creation of her characters who will inhabit it by giving it a firmly original and poetic narration.
