Since antiquity, drapery has been used as a stylistic practice in the representation of the body to enhance or conceal forms. The draped nudes, my new series of paintings, reconsiders this classic subject of painting through "photographic" framing. Of a modest sensuality, they break with classicism while exploring the codes of this classicism through the tones and the poses. To show the body or to hide it? Today we could think that the subject is not guilty any more, it would be undoubtedly to make abstraction of the censorship of always current classic works.

These draped and fragmented nudes remind us that the body is the refuge of identity, this identity subject to so many interrogations. No doubt this is why the nude questions so much the painters.

21 works

After a career as a textile designer for various silk companies during a whole professional life, the subject imposed itself to Odile Faure: the floral theme which historically inspired the work of the textile industry in general and the silk industry in Lyon in particular.

Life in a rural environment and a naturalist spouse developed this attraction for work on the beauties of nature, between the botanical illustration of Pierre-Joseph Redouté, the "Raphael of flowers", and the modernism of Georgia O'Keeffe.

Simple and fragile flowers that we come across every day without giving them the attention they deserve.
