Chartres (28), France
Born in 1964 in Eure et Loir, Nathalie Dumontier developed two passions in her youth: sport and painting. A sports educator for 20 years, she decided in 2006 to leave everything and devote herself entirely to painting. In 2008, she trained as a stained glass artist, which allowed her to enrich her creativity and technique. In her work with glass, she finds the interplay of shadow and light, transparency and opacity that she works with in her painting. The technique is different as well as the angle of attack, but the approach is resolutely the same, the two expressions complement each other.
She regularly exhibits her paintings and glass pieces in solo and group exhibitions. The non-figuration allows him to free the gesture, the conventions, the rules, to deepen his pictorial research to say something, to speak freely in a way. It’s a way of saying.
She layers on the canvas the layers of her memories, her changes of state, her impressions, all the sensations they left in her by bringing either matter or fluidity to her painting. Opacity and transparency clash, feelings jostle, oppose each other. This work nourishes her, gives her pleasure, also torments her, forces her to go further, to explore her deepest troubles.
