(France, born in 1985)
A young international visual artist from France. Born in 1985, Flore Sigrist began painting spontaneously without a model or teacher. Her artistic talent was brought to the fore by her sensory hypersensitivity, which gave her a particular understanding of colors and their interaction.
Her first exhibition in 1989 revealed a striking vigor of line and color and the unexpected authority in herself, a child, who, unaware of modern art, embraced painting without hesitation or need to reproduce past models.
In many ways, Sigrist’s original, almost indigenous painting style puts her in line with the Abstract Expressionists, who turned to new, experimental, abstract painting in search of the same artistic values. In particular, the Lyrical Abstraction movement, which emerged in the 1960s-1970s and is characterized by an intuitive and loose handling of paint, spontaneous expression, illusionistic space and casual imagery.
Bright, colorful, even abstract, these true works of art illustrate his need for personal expression. It is poignant and dramatic art, where reds and blues, grays and yellows resonate with abstract and expressionistic inspiration.
Such is the unique art of Flore Sigrist.
