Odile Escolier

After scientific studies, Odile Escolier worked in the medical field. At the same time she was continuing developing her artistic skills with inks, pastels and mixed techniques. She exhibited her work in France and abroad. She decided to dedicate her time to become a professional painter. Meeting, sharing, the link to the other one, are the main themes for Odile Escolier's inspiration. The human being in its relationship to others challenges the artist. Trees, silent nature, colorful rhythms which lead to abstract are also part of her work. She uses acrylic paint, inks and pigments.

She uses acrylic paint, inks and pigments, first working in the background and then creating hollow spaces, as receptacles for the subject to come. The use of the knife primarily allows her spontaneity and movement. Odile likes scraping, painting sculpting, feeling the overlapping layers and light effects that result.
She works the purification of line, the suggestion of forms, keeping only the essentials. The structured settings of her paintings are populated by "living, ephemeral and solitary nature." From the opposition between subject and environment comes a feeling of loneliness, fragility and melancholy. The traces of time are part of the media and suggest the transience of the moment. The individual is suspended and hangs by a thread. Despite the fragility and a certain absence, a world is born, a presence. Sounds and noises seem to emanate from each canvas, yet the scene is silent and no one distinct voice rises above the rest.
In intense and mysterious works, the artist remains fascinated by the human question, its joys and sorrows.
