Anne Gaelle Arnaud has always painted. She studied the ceramic arts in Vallauris in 2000 and 2001.
She has lived in Biot for nearly 15 years and has always been inspired by abstract art, which comes to her naturally, due to her love of colour, composition and her quest for texture and inspiration.
It is also undoubtedly due to her passion for sculpture and ceramic art which have make her palette knife oil paintings so full of texture and yet sensuous, like clay.
Anne Arnaud’s canvases do not give everything away at first glance. Each time they are perceived a new emotion is released, a red wine colour will flower beneath a vermillion, or the colour gold will subtly scratch at the surface of a celadon, whilst a sienna earth tint will be glimpsed through a mousey grey.
But, despite all of their abstract qualities, Anne Arnaud’s canvases carry within them the reflection of scenes of the Cote D’Azur, the sea which is so close and the light which belongs uniquely to the south, tangible even in stormy weather.
In her canvases, Anne Arnaud reveals to us a bit more of herself; of her calm and intensity, leaving us hanging, awaiting her next revelation.
