ERIKA SELLIER PAINTS LIFE...

THAT OF FOREIGN AND FORGOTTEN CULTURES, OF PEOPLE ENCOUNTERED ON A PATH’S TURNING, SEIZED IN THEIR DAILY LIVES.

FROM HER TRAVELS BY SEA OR BY LAND, SHE HAS MANAGED TO APPROACH THEM AND DISCOVER THEIR HIDDEN SOULS. HER PAINTINGS CAPTURE THE EPHEMERAL MAGIC, ANONYMOUS  TAKEN ON THE SPUR OF THE MOMENT. SHE ATTEMPTS TO STOP  TIME. TO PRESERVE ANCESTRAL GESTURES FROM SINKING INTO OBLIVION, RITUALS WHICH ARE TRANSMITTED FROM MEN TO MEN. IT IS WHAT SHE CALLS «THE ART OF THE PRESENT» AND PRECISELY, THESE MEN’S LIFE STORIES COME ALIVE UNDER HER PAINTBRUSHES WITH A FORM OF COLOURFUL CROSSBREDING!

THE PAYS BASQUE HAS BEEN HER HOME FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS, AND HER WORK EQUALLY TAKES US TO THE HEART AND ROOTS OF THE BASQUE CULTURE, POETICALLY RECOUNTING IT TO US. IT IS HER WAY OF SHARING HER AFFECTION AND ATTACHMENT TO THAT LAND.

OUTSIDE HER STUDIO IN ASCAIN, ERIKA SELLIER IS REGULARY SHOWN AT PROFESSIONAL ART -FAIRS MUSEUMS AND GALLERIES.

HER OTHER PASSION IS UNDER-GLASS PAINTING.

TRAINED TO THIS DELICATE CRAFT AT THE «ATELIERS D’ART DE FRANCE » SHE DESIGNS JEWELLERY, PRECIOUS AND UNIQUE OBJECTS, AS WELL AS AN ART-OF-THE-TABLE COLLECTION.

SHE HAS BEEN GIVEN RECOGNITION AND LISTED AMONGST THE «TALENTS DE FRANCE ».

ERIKA HOPES TO RELY ON HER ENTHUSIASM IN THAT PARTICULARY ARTFUL CRAFT SO TO PROTECT IT FROM SINKING INTO OBLIVION, IN FRANCE AS WELL AS ABROAD.

SPECIAL COMMISSIONS ARE ACCEPTED.YOU MAY VISIT HER STUDIO ON REQUEST.


Some of the paintings are still available, ask by email.
