Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

A part of my Between heaven and earth series, which is a conscious breakaway from my geometrical abstraction. This series is done by applying acrylic paint with a knife and working the colour in layers and mixing them together for a very soft and subtle effect. I have been inspired by the beauty of nature, the sky, the clouds and the sea in this collection. Into the wide blue yonder I was painted at the same time as Into the wide blue yonder II and can be bought as a matching pair. Any colour differences observed in the photos do not reflect the reality. Both artworks have the same colour tones.

Artist Profile

Born: 1959

Hometown: Geneva

Based in: Geneva

Sylvie Hamou is a self-taught contemporary painter and resides in Geneva, Switzerland. She creates unique abstract works inspired by her quest for harmony and balance and her sensitivity to color.

Cultural influences

Hamou was born and raised in New Zealand to French and Swiss parents and then lived in France as an adult before settling in Switzerland, 10 years ago. This cultural melting pot influences Hamou’s minimalist approach to geometric constructivism and abstraction; she finds inspiration in the repeated motifs and dot work techniques of Antipodean art.

Balance and contrast

Simple aesthetics and equilibrium are the backbone of her creativity. Hamou skilfully confronts and juxtaposes flowing elements with strong structures to present a dynamic dialogue between colors, lines and spheres. Primarily working with acrylic, she opts for a limited palette of hues and freely explores textures derived from natural fibers, gesso and sand as well as incorporating signature dot work. Hamou’s bold artworks spark the viewer’s imagination and encourage free interpretation.

International success

Hamou has exhibited widely in Switzerland, throughout Europe and much further afield (France, USA, Italy, Germany, Luxembourg, Spain etc). Her work was showcased in the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, Japan and the Grand Palais in Paris. After successful international juried selections, Hamou presented works at The Other Art Fair in Brooklyn in 2017 and in London in 2018. Her work is found in private collections worldwide.
