Ink, oil, glaze, pigment, gold powder, engraving, monotype, embossing on linen canvas.

Borrowing iconographic documents - here a detail of Rubens Jeune femme’s work holding a rosary - from Art History is a common practice in my work. I like to enter into conversation with the major works of painting and write about them or about the painter by mixing my own painter’s story. I am deeply attached to these references. For this painting I make 4 ink drawings of faces to reinforce the deep look of Rubens’ Young Woman. The techniques of marouflage, monotype and engraving are already presented in the description of my graphic paper works. On the other hand, I use here at the margins of the canvas purple lacquer and dioxazine pigments as well as gold powder fixed and worked with a glazing medium. Reinforcing the technical kinship with the works of the past is also a decisive element in my plastic choices.

LAURIS EN LUBERON (84), FRANCE

40 works

For more than 35 years, including the years of training (Fine Arts in Lyon, Decorative Arts Villa Arson Nice, Doctorate Arts Plastiques Sorbonne Paris) it is to painting that Lucile Travert has dedicated her life and work.

She acquired the skills of the profession of painting, drawing, engraving at the same time as she enriched her artistic knowledge by exploring the history of art through the prisms of literature, music, philosophy, poetry, architecture, photography, sculpture...

The question of the body, of the figure, is for her the fundamental question. She conducts research inspired by the major works of the great masters of painting such as Rembrandt, Caravaggio, Leonardo da Vinci, Rubens, Titian but also contemporaries such as Cy Twombly, Bacon, Giacometti, Alechinsky, Garouste, Anselm Kieffer... His daily work continues within the stone walls of his studio, a historic setting in the heart of the courtyard of Château de Lauris, a Luberon village nestled on a rocky spur overlooking the Durance plain in Provence.

For 20 years, Lucile Travert has regularly presented her work to an informed public at exhibitions in both emblematic and prestigious places (Abbey, Chapel, Art Centre, Galleries). She also likes to meet new eyes and make her painting accessible to everyone.
