This painting from the series "Akribeia" was made during the period of the very beginning of the confinement in June July 2020. This canvas is painted, line after line, with oil paint, with brush n.4.

The work was made in the questioning, the slowness of a spirit and a body which put back to the task in a slowness imposed by the context: a return to the color, to harmonic research adjoining a complex technical process.

Like the writing of paragraphs, each progressive color harmony has been meticulously painted: the lines follow one another and progressively change hue, each passage occurs after several days of waiting and fallowing; unlike the monochrome work of the previous period entitled Now is gone. These painted lines touch each other in certain places leaving intervals of white lines. Simple reserves of the white background, these alternations of fine open-worked lines create motifs in a rhythmic fluidity. The artist follows the slow rhythm that his breathing inspires him, trusting his instinct and the need to do.

The name Akribeia comes from the ancient Greek and means "accuracy, meticulous care". The sound of the word resonates, or rather reasons, as something settled, precise and determined. The common word acribia means "who works with the most meticulous care". Sometimes it is necessary to put oneself in danger in order to change that which settles us in stagnation.

After a long work on form, surface and time, his approach as a colorist painter spontaneously resurfaces. This painting follows the monochrome series in progress "Indigo".

Dedicated to painting for 35 years, Christine Pillot studied in the 80's at the Beaux Arts of Toulouse and at the faculty of Plastic Arts of Bordeaux. As a young painter, she seeks and defends her work against preconceived ideas. At the age of 23 she left for Senegal with her backpack, and stayed there from 1988 to 2008. During these 20 years in Africa, together with Mauro Petroni, she co-directs the workshop "Céramiques Almadies" art centre, exhibition gallery and workshop, a place of reference for artists and cultural operators. This space is still very active today and participates in the biennial of contemporary art in Dakar.

She multiplies artistic projects, commissions, scenography, space and object design.Her exhibition career has taken her work to several African and European countries.

She explores color, transparency, she superimposes, at that time the white background is a taboo. Her series will be on research on geometric abstraction, circles, childhood, expressionism. The last years in Dakar, she works the artistic expression with the patients of the Psychiatric hospital of Fann, and with the street children of the Samu Social. Her next appointment is with South Africa in Knysna where she will have an artistic residency for 2 months together with Maja Marx, for the Saffca.

Since 2009 she lives in her native country and resides in Bordeaux where her studio is located.
