Profile

Sophie Chédeville

Placeholder
Sophie Chédeville

Born: 1974

Hometown: Paris, France

Based in: Brittany, France

 

i studied scenography( and photography, academic drawing, packaging , graphic design, concept) in Paris, were I was born, and were I spend almost 38 years. But my first love was painting, so I learned "trompe l'oeil", and the art of fresco.
Mostly I work with oil, for me it is the quintessence of the painting discipline. And gosh it smell so good! and Ireally love the texture.
when I can't paint(if I travel,i I'm in exhibition) I used to write, I already wrote a book of poetries, and I just finish a novel. This is kind of sketchbook to me.
In my works, I follow the emotional human thing. I wanna translate the primordial emotions, the ones who do that humans are alive and so close to each other. I've got much more an engaged painting, that an decorative painting. And I like to follow social actuality, and take part of it with my works.

About Sophie Chédeville


IconInspires

What inspires you?

the plants, the wind, and people, the characters , all of that is the principal sensation I work with, it's like earring the suffering of each, and transforme it in energy and paintings, to show that something else is possible, somewhere better,


IconCreative

Describe your creative process.

I look a lot of books, all my favorites painters, it's like a ritual and dive into their own gestures. I fell more confident, and more impregnated. I also write some of the most important ideas I want to show, including colors, dark areas, place of the masses. I write it because I doesn't want to draw on my canvas, I want to fell free as much as possible, to keep the essence of the intention. After I choose the music I want to go with and develop the repetition and the duration of the emotion.
