Michèle Loussouarn

This artist from the Great East has always expressedherself through the arts, whether through drawing, paintingor sculpture. In this way, with a baccalaureate in her pocket, Michèle spontaneouslygravitated towards advanced studies in the plastic arts andcentred her career on personal practice and teaching.

Member of the "Rainbow" association in Mulhouse since 2008, Michèlestarted an intense work focusing on nudes, essentially feminine ones, which she enricheswith multiple vivid colours. In parallel, she pursues her activities in sculpture andpainting, regularly providing coursesfor children and adults. Profoundlynourishedby heradditional occupations, the artist loves her workshop efforts to chime with those she provides during hertraining periods.

For a number of years,Michèle’s artistic approach has been directed to two themes,on which she works assiduously, namely portraitsandnudes. Executedwith both precise andrefinedgestures, hersubjectsemergefrom the surface of thepaperby means ofdelicate lines suggestingmore than they actually show. Citingthe Germanpainter Paul Klee (1879-1940), "art does not reproduce the visible, it makes visible", Michèleis at pains to attach a body to hercharacters,by giving themcurvesand textures through a subtle play offull and empty. Then she uses aquarelle or acrylicto intensify thedrawingat the whim of an astonishing palette ofstrongly contrasting colours. Herconstant research is a balance between harmonyofformsandvisual depth, so the artist "worksin successive layers ordeletionsuntil she is satisfied".
