As a child, Cécile Pujol spent her time drawing. After a BAC in Applied Arts, she studied fashion design in Paris, then obtained a diploma in textile design in England, being very attracted by patterns and colour. The work of the Austrian painter Egon Schiele and his expressionist trait left their mark on her forever.
After having been a graphic designer in a design office, she quickly left the world of fashion for the world of entertainment, more creative for her taste, and became intermittent. She discovered the work of costume at the Opéra Bastille, and perceived the scene as a real painting in motion. In 2004 she moved to Marseille to produce a more personal work and started painting.
"The spontaneous gesture is very important and I feel free of any technical constraints. I use acrylic for its fast drying time, which allows me to integrate texts that I take off leaving their traces randomly. It reminds me of the faded, patinated, rubbed fabrics on the dancers’ bodies and develops in me the idea that artistic creation is nourishing when it is linked to the instability of things. I fill my canvases with traces, furrows..... like a path. Or large flat areas, like a suddenly calmed space. It is my vision of nature with all its contrasts, calm and agitation, stillness and movement, bright colours and intense greys."
