After making May newspaper headlines, the artist Catherine Duchêne answered to the Carré d'artistes questions.
If I were an artist? Willem de Kooning (1904-1997), Chaïm Soutine (1893-1943) or Rembrandt (1606-1669) for their incomparable paintings!

If I were an artwork? I wish I were sculpted by the great master, Alberto Giacometti...
If I were a Carré d'artistes gallery? Amsterdam, to be as close as possible to Rembrandt.
Picasso or Van Gogh? Vincent Van Gogh without a doubt. Picasso, I'm tired of him... Van Gogh not yet !
If I weren't a painter? I would be sculptor or scenographer.
If I were a color? Blue... and all its colour shades.
If I were an emotion? The joy.
If I were a song? La Catherine from the Cowboys Fringuants. They seem to describe me when I was 27.
I I were an expression? "Impose your chance, hold tight to your happiness and go toward your risk. Looking your way, they’ll follow” René Char, poet and French resistant.
If I had a super power? The ubiquity gift!
If I were a travel? The inner journey.

You best artist memory? One of my artworks "La bonne étoile" has been bought and offered by Jean-Christophe Cambadélis to François Hollande as a departure gift in May 2017.
Can you describe your studio... Small, overcrowded, bright, colorful, creative and friendly!
