It is in a colorful and dreamlike universe that the visitor is invited to set sail, to discover the work of the artist-painter Émilie Chêne, from March 25 to May 24. An observer of daily life, self-taught, Émilie Chêne transcribes her travel photographs, in search of the feeling of plenitude that the most beautiful panoramas can arouse. His favorite mediums are large format canvases. Floating in the frame of the Suzanne Savary gallery, her works will thrill the showroom, inviting us on a unique journey to the heart of Thionville.
In artistic residency in Paris
After a plastic arts baccalaureate and sketching lessons at the Beaux-Arts, Émilie followed a course in a business school with an international orientation. From her experiences abroad, she feeds on the diversity of landscapes and the colorful arts of the countries in which she has stayed. She exhibits regularly in galleries in Paris and in Ile de France, as well as in contemporary art fairs. His art is appreciated by a large audience in Asia, as in Europe. The year 2022-2023 is notably marked by his artistic residency at 59, Rivoli in Paris.
La Parisienne mainly draws her inspiration from personal photos taken in nature. Through her paintings, she tries to relive the moment of fullness she felt facing the landscape. To capture this moment of calm, she frees herself from the academic rules of landscape representation and takes the freedom to reinvent reality in her own way, as she has experienced it. She reappropriates the landscape by simplifying and purifying it to keep only the essentials in her eyes.
