Villeneuve-Les-Avignon (30), France
Born in Paris in 1962, Aude Billerot was always interested in graphic design and drawing which led her to start working as a graphologist. After the birth of her three children, she prolonged this taste by shifting towards painting. Like a child in the middle of its scattered toys, she indulges in a lively and joyful jumble that makes colours and shapes vibrate in compositions that are nourished by nature’s inspiration and are sometimes led to abstraction.
Natural forces are at the heart of her work: first zebra patterns and pebbles then small fish that look slippery enough to slide between your fingers, patchwork fields, ripples in the water and finally blooming flowers, floating lightly on the surface and overflowing into generous bouquets. Her artistic tools of expression are either the inks of China, colours applied on a sheet of paper, or the acrylic paint treated in various ways such as brushes, rollers and knives for paint scrapings. Her bias is resolutely decorative. Her painting is marked by meticulousness and finesse and characterised by a jubilation of colours, cheerfulness, and poetry.
What’s more, she loves the lightness and brightness provided by the inks which are both translucent and intense. For some years, she passionately painted varied formats while mainly focusing on the theme of water. The seasons, the cycle of the stars and the element of water as the origin of all life inspire her enormously. In her paintings, you will find a temporal dimension centered around water-polished pebbles. However, there is a more spiritual dimension of rebirth as is seen in the water lilies floating on troubled waters. Her last paintings are of land seen from the sky or reflections of the water where she alternates structure and precision through the use of blurred shapes.
For four years I followed courses at the School of Fine Arts in Vitré (Brittany). The very eclectic training allowed me to touch a little bit of everything. I sculpted clay (sculptures of faces mainly or totems), I worked with wood, wire mesh, cement, aerated concrete, cardboard... and of course different painting techniques... I painted with Chinese inks for about five years. I love the lightness and brightness provided by the translucent and intense inks. Then for a few years now, I have been painting with passion on canvases of very varied formats, mainly on the theme of water. The seasons, the cycle of the stars and the element water as the origin of all life inspire me enormously. In my paintings, you will therefore find a temporal dimension with the theme of pebbles polished by the waters, a more spiritual dimension of rebirth with water lilies from troubled waters and a dimension of vital abundance with fish quivering in all directions on the space of the canvas. My last paintings are lands seen from the sky or reflections on the water where I alternate structure, precision of the line with fuzzy, almost cottony shapes (use of the roller).
