D.W.C. Woman in Red - Painter Annick Bouvattier

Friday, January 17, 2014

Born in 1964 in Nevers, France.  Annick Bouvattier captures seemingly insignificant gestures in the everyday lives of beautiful women, trivial moments, fleeting glances, words unspoken, speechless stories. She is a painter of silences, silences that many a beholder and collector has heard and savoured.

In 1982, she trains as a stylist for two years at Berçot – Marie Rucki Fashion School. Her works were subsequently shown in Paris and the Villa Médicis in Rome, and acclaimed by fashion designers and the trade press.
She was more drawn to stage fashion than prêt-à-porter, however, and chose to work for filmmakers and advertising. She has since designed a number of costumes for Cinecittà Studios in Rome. From her Italian experience derives her use of deep, warm and sensual colours: sun-drenched ochres, velvet reds, intense blues and deep greens.
In 1990 she gave herself wholly up to painting. After two years of self-training, she studied with Pierre Ramel (a former pupil of Mac Avoy’s), who taught her the painting-knife technique: she smooths out her oils to achieve an effect of transparency.
