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.
