Fabienne Verdier's paintings are most often large format. They are to the measure of his body and even his moving body. The method is similar to Jackson Pollock's, but on a different scale. Far from the American's spider dripping, a telluric force is at work here. Of course, this gesture does not come from nowhere, but it does not mime a pre-existing form. It is inspired by the natural forces that surround us, the lightning in the sky, the currents in the river, the vein of a rock, the twisting of a branch, the emergence of a bud, a whole living world, or frozen, that charges the painter's mind and body, moves her and crosses her until she returns, like a volcano its lava flow, the energies that bubbled in her. Trained by Chinese calligraphy masters, the artist Fabienne Verdier works with gigantic brushes that generate a real physical performance in the creative process. Fabienne Verdier, born in 1962 in Paris, regularly exhibits in Europe and Asia. His works appear in numerous collections, including the MNAM Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen (Munich), the Hubert Looser Foundation and the Kunsthaus in Zurich. The Granet Museum in Aix-en-Provence is extending its Fabienne Verdier retrospective. On the lands of Cézanne until 5 January 2020, which was a great success. Rich in references and exhilarating with freedom, her work honours both meditation and sensuality.
