Painter and video artist, Sophie Barthélémy was born in Paris (France) in 1969. She has been exhibiting personally and collectively since 1994.
"Creation is the refuge from which I develop my poetic feeling. I paint figures, landscapes, fish... The subjects are deliberately simple, colourful and soft; they are above all a pretext for working with colours, without any further claims. Because in my creative process, it is about play and letting go, about wonder and self-forgetfulness. I search with passion and anxiety for a vision that, depending on the work of the canvas, always ends up appearing, to my delight. It is this kind of magic, beyond the appearances of the painted thing, that I seek to perpetrate. "Sophie Barthélémy
