Cécile Desserle

After pursuing a double education devoted to the Fine Arts and to Visual Arts, Cécile began her career as a teacher. As she spent her time imparting her techniques and cultural knowledge to students, the artist from Avignon also began to make her own art on the side. Cécile is deeply attached to the notion of gestures in her artistic practice and quickly turned her attention to works of Action Painting, and especially to artistic creations by the French artists Ernest Pignon-Ernest (born in 1942) and Jacques Villéglé (born in 1926).

The artist then began writing her own artistic language, lending special attention to typographic characters in the composition of her works, combined with the predominance given to gestures in her pieces. Her efforts to capture movement on her canvas, to "capture forever that which is fleeting, and all that is furtive", is a quest that has always been a motor for the artist, who has never stopped proving herself over the years. Cécile is always looking for new modes of visual expression and makes her works using acrylic paint or industrial paint or even spray paint and sometimes using collages, charcoal or stencils.

She places the human being at the heart of her work. The body is omnipresent and exposes all of its facets, almost systematically translating the range of its potential for energy and vitality. When in contact with her models who are mainly dancers, Cécile transcribes the heart's impulses with elegance and poetry, by way of the movements of the bodies. Her paintings are resolutely contemporary and offer snapshots of life led by the rhythm of physical pulsations.
