Anne Turlais

Painter

Bio

A desire to bring meaning supports a singular work, listening to nature. The eye is called upon, as we can be in front of a landscape: by the softness, the light, and the beauty of the colors.
Anne draws her inspiration from nature, which appears to her to be the mother of beauty and generosity. It is a sensory language that travels to the heart, without first resorting to intellectual or artistic references. In search of light, transparency, depth, and softness, she lays the first layers of white on the canvas like a dawn of the first days.
With more than 40 years as a painter and engraver, she discovered the iPad in 2016 as a new medium for creation. This new approach to art allows her to capture nature's beauty in the pre-sent and perpetuate her commitment of giving the public a sense of openness, space, and light. Three non-palpable, non-quantifiable, non-visible entities to which she wishes to get as close as possible.
Through her compositions, she wants the spectator to set his sight and thoughts in the most intimate direction, in the direction of the heart, and thus confront a more universal gaze.
If you are drawn to the living, light, and colors, her art will resonate with you.
