Claudine Castanier , France

Self-taught, born in 1952, originating from Vienna, I was always attracted to drawing, gradually the desire for taking up brushes came to me.
To paint is for me a source of motivation, a way of escaping and of exteriorizing myself, a refuge.
It is like suspending time, taking a pause, sought to free colors, the light and a little something, to escape in landscapes and divert them into an imaginary one.
I work on linen. I do not have a precise idea, I know that I will start with a bench, a flower or other, and soon my painting builds progressively.
I enjoy the texture in my hands and work as much with my fingers as my brushes.
The most difficult is to know when to stop.
My creations are born in reflex ion, in feelings and loneliness, which becomes allies.
I wish to share through my painting, my passion, my serenity, my humility.
It is like a birth, a result, finally the glance of others.
