Françoise Nielly: New Works 2011

More blasts of colour by French painter Françoise Nielly.  “Nielly grew up in the South of France where she lived between Cannes and Saint-Tropez – never far from the light, the color sense and the atmosphere that permeates the South of France.  This is coupled with her studies with her studies at the Beaux arts and Decorative Arts, and her sense of humor and of celebration.

Nielly’s painting is expressive, exhibiting a brute force, a fascinating vital energy. Oil and knife combine to sculpt her images from a material that is , at the same time, biting and incisive, and sensual. Whether she paints the human body or portraits, the artist takes a risk : her painting is sexual, her colors free, exuberant, surprising, even explosive, the cut of her knife incisive, her color pallet dazzling.” (from artist’s website)

Nielly currently lives and paints in Paris near Montmartre.  She shows and sells her work in Europe, in Canada and in the United States.
