Greatly influenced by her training in classical and contemporary dance as much as by her university studies in mathematics, Odile embarked some day in abstract painting. The freedom to be that brings this artistic discipline is infinite. Colors, shapes and movements gather in abstraction on her paintings to form sets some times very simple, often complex, still alive. While exploring the countless abstract painting, she tastes occasionally figurative painting by doing and redoing faces to black, rough, coarse strokes. She likes to try to pierce the pathetic and defiant expression of these turbaned faces.
The medium allows her to extend beyond the two-dimensional framework imposed by the media: not only it can infringe upon an imaginary mat or insert digitally collages, it may also work by superimposed layers. The subject of the work is linked to its environment, either in its periphery, either by affixing or depth. She loves relationship of scattered elements and to create a scene of life. But also, the figurative reference can only become a pretext for discovering a reflexive reality that often opens on abstraction. One way or another, between thinking and imagination, what she is trying to express, is the ephemeral moment of a passage where anything can switch. The computer image processing made her discover something aesthetically new and she is now approaching her art differently, her mixed techniques are an impact.
The painting is a scene where she comes alive: a departure space, a space created by the power of colors, a few simple shapes simplefied to their minimum or totally complexed indefinitely. Like a move, the key is in the present moment: every time an algorithm to decipher, a solution to express where paint rust and other mediums are most often swept by old credit cards. The colors are variables, transformations on the canvas and the mixing of textures, their resultant. Then, by dint of combination, permutation, decomposition, repetition, the depth of arrangements take shape. And if abstraction and movement could unite, where would they choir?
Here is her playground.
