FEUILLOLEY



Born in 1960 in France.
Lives and works in Yport, Normandie, France

In the artworks of Feuilloley the subject is the human being, yet is the way in which the artist rejects the conventional canons of representation that amaze us.

An often lengthen or more compact anatomy and bodies completely bare with a look beautifully expressive, are the features of Feuilloley's work. A work which is far from the naturalism of classic portrait, despite the representation of the human figure. The artist's eye is unable to remain on the surface, cannot avoid of going deeper and fathom the interiority of her subjects and eventually she bares them, not just exteriorly. Here they appear, caricatures of the movements of the soul, perfectly reported on canvas.

The watchword is fantasy, and it is thanks to it that Feuilloley manages to reach the magical dimension of being in order to let the mechanisms of the subconscious and the symbolic dominating her expressive language.

Through her works the world appears sublimate by its deceptive appearances and hers denuded characters finally look for what they are inside, thanks to the metamorphosis that we admire on her canvases.

In his works you can always notice a series of levels and this is the challenge that throws the artist to the viewer: for a better understanding, the spectator has to be ready to challenge himself, in the one hand as observer and in the second as subject.

Thus the act of painting becomes for Feuilloley above all an interior need to communicate her vision of the world, a need which leads to a continuous revision and deepening of her own style.
