I work with different techniques to translate a world that is both real and dreamlike. The representation of the human being is the central subject of my work, without reference to time and place.

This canvas is part of a series of works (on canvas or paper) resulting from a reflection on our fragility in the face of the world and the need to hide behind a protective envelope.

Signature on the side.

Cécile Duchêne-Malissin is a resolutely figurative painter. His paintings feature isolated characters, imbued with a certain melancholy, and seemingly immersed in deep introspection.

A diversity of mediums at the service of composition

Cécile Duchêne-Malissin's painting cannot be labeled as it is unique: in terms of theme, composition, but also technique, mixing acrylic paint, ink, paper and canvas. Wishing to move away from “simple painting”, she uses it as a starting point on a partly mounted canvas, where she adds various techniques such as oil pastel, graphite lead, collage and sometimes even painting. sewing.

Cécile Duchêne-Malissin remains for a long time on the same theme, declining it on several paintings or drawings. Usually, she begins with a search for composition that she does most of the time with sketches in which she incorporates photos.

A dreamlike universe imbued with nostalgia

Cécile Duchêne-Malissin's paintings do not evoke any reference to time or place because that is not what is important. Rather, it is about translating our fragility in the face of the world and the need to hide behind a protective envelope.

If childhood occupied a large part in her work before, Cécile Duchêne-Malissin's approach is now evolving. However, the relationship with the body and its fragility remains. Fleeting existence, a tiny trace that it represents on the scale of the Universe: the history of Humanity is as brief as the flapping of wings.

Cécile Duchêne-Malissin transcribes this brevity thanks to transparencies obtained by a superposition of paint, ink and paper mounted on the canvas. This ephemerality is discussed in the series "Disparition", "Les Métamorphoses" or "Poussière".

The characters in the paintings reveal themselves as much as they hide: behind masks, vegetation. They present themselves to the viewer, abandoned to the gaze, and yet all in restraint. But is it the spectator who observes the character, or the opposite?
