Ariane BAFFIE is an authentic painter. Originally from Capbreton, in the South-West of France, she escaped in drawing since her early childhood. It was only in 1998, at the age of 21, following the death of her father, that she discovered painting and especially expression. His work with oil is first guided by the quest for the right curve, leading him to simplify his subjects to the extreme. Saying more with less, with joy in mind. His first exhibition in 2001 was a real success. Many more will follow.
In 2016, she undertook a profound work on herself and felt a visceral need to assume the artist within her. She does not hesitate to confront herself with what she has never done: the portrait. Let herself be immersed in Amylee's very feminine universe or even more impactful Jimmy Law, she embarked on the realization of her first portrait that exceeded all her expectations. She has just invented her new playground: "bullism", a cousin of pointillism. Made with acrylic, each circle is painted by hand, with the tip of its brush. The superposition of these thousands of meditative bubbles requires a very large release to give way to intuition because the whole thing is only revealed at the end, with the last flashes.
