Sophie Chédeville

Sophie Chédeville

Born: 1974

Hometown: Paris, France

Based in: Brittany, France

I studied scenography (and photography, academic drawing, packaging graphic design, concept) in Paris, where I was born, and where I spent 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.
When I can't paint (if I travel or if I'm in an exhibition) I used to write, I already wrote a book of poetry, and I just finished a novel. This is kind of sketchbook to me.
In my works, I follow the emotional way. I want to translate the primordial emotions, the ones that show that humans are alive and they are an integral part of a whole.I think I've got much more an engaged painting, that a decorative painting. I put a lot of conviction in it And I like to follow social actuality and take part of it with my works through the moods it inspires me

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.

I found in it the energy to always purchase my goal: tell about human being.
