Drawing, then very quickly ink, were the vectors of Fanou Montel's sensitivity as a child and then as a teenager. When painting imposed itself on her a little later, it was through figuration that the artist tried to translate her emotions.
Nudes, portraits, lots of landscapes... Then the touches appeared more and more abstract. Abstraction has become, for some years now, the tool of his creative liberation. And then, as nothing is immutable, a few figurative transcriptions gradually make their appearance... and she lets it happen.
At the start of a canvas, a jubilant phase, the gesture is ample, rapid, distributing coloured masses, establishing a rhythm through solids, voids, lines, traces... It is rare for the artist to fix a precise image to create, she prefers to explore all the possibilities by allowing herself to repent and let herself be guided by the emotions that arise as the architecture is put in place.
Fanou Montel paints for that! To live those intense moments that creation brings him. Even though doubt and questioning often taunt her, they never stop her from doing it again and again...
