From a tiny village near by Toulouse located in the South of France, Émilie Charrasse has always been attracted by Art including the idea of reproducing; through her childish eyes; her view of the world. Later, during a school visit in a Modern Art Museum, she has been intrigued by the ab-stract canvases of Pierre Soulage. His concept of "Outre noir" ("Beyond Black") was for her so innovative by the time. As Pierre Soulage said, his "instrumental is not black but the light reflect-ed from the black". But even if she gets caught by his artwork, she would never imagine, even a tiny second, becoming an abstract artist. That's why, it's only this present year, at 35 years old, following a painfull experience of life, that she felt this visceral need to release all the emotions held captive inside her body. At this moment, her Art changed radicaly. Transcribe the world around her wasn't enough. She needed to reveal her inner world; her pain, her doubts, her anger and her joy of life regained. At this significant point, she has met Acrilic Pouring Techniques. She literaly felt in love with it. With this Art Process she has been able to reconnect with her deepest self. Acrilic Pouring or Abstract Art in general, is for her the best way to express feelings that words won't be able to elude.
“Art is another language where there is no frustration. Therefore, when I'm experiencing an over-flew of emotions, I'm taking a blank canvas. I put it on the flour and I lose myself into the enjoy-ment of creating. Playing with Acrilic paint, with tools and fingers, reminds me the child full of dreams and happiness I was. And as said my mentor Pierre Soulage a window looks outside, but a painting should do the opposite. It should looks inside us. Hope you will enjoy the travel inside me then. Everything's intuitive for me. The only focal point is that I need to touch the paint, ixing it by hand. It's like being part of the canvas in a way for me. Art to me it's therapy, intuition, life, hapiness, healing... emotions in general. When I'm painting, I'm not thinking about a concept or an idea. It's like the paint was controlling me. I need it as I need to eat”
