Virginie Schroeder

 It has been more than twelve years now that Virginie Schroeder has continued down her path as an artist, after deciding to leave her temp job. In 2009, she reinvented herself again by moving to Canada and it is in Montreal that she took part in her first exhibitions, naturally finding a place for herself in the bubbling cultural and artistic life of the city. After a period in which her style leaned towards Pop Art, she developed more personal techniques, born out of the synthesis of her experience with the figurative and her fascination with the abstract. 

Her work begins with a realistic sketch of her subject, which she then cuts up and deconstructs, before applying a medium in order to delineate the lines of her work. She then superimposes several layers of acrylic and then oil paint, applying colors using a syringe and then reworking them with a knife. Once she is satisfied with the meticulously created harmony, she then the medium in order to reveal the final work. The mix of bright colors and fluorescent paints enables her to create contrasts that showcase the vibration of lines and to give depth to her work. It is by paying close attention to the details of the face that she builds her paintings, which are fascinating due to their myriad level of interpretation. The viewer first discovers an abstract painting with lines and colours that are skillfully mastered, then he or she back up, lets their gaze focus on a detail and then suddenly they discover a radically different work. The play of the visible and the invisible turns the viewer's gaze into the crucial element in Virginie Schroeder's work. The vieer's gaze brings together the aesthetic perfection and surprisingly playful aspects of her work. Today, her works delight audiences in Canada, but also in France and in the United States.
