Artist Profile: Anne-Sophie Tschiegg

A wonderful French artist, Anne uses blocks of colour and texture to create highly atmospheric, semi-abstract paintings. She mainly focuses on portraits, landscapes and flowers - which seems typical of many female painters. It's interesting how time and again artists come back to these three subjects and still manage to capture something that wasn't in existence before. I love her use of colour and how distinctive her style is.



"Je me suis aussi rendu compte que je me déplaçais sans cesse dans trois catégories conventionnelles : le paysage, le portrait, les fleurs. Chacune poussée à des degrés d’abstraction différents, toutes se mêlant. Un paysage peut finir en portrait, le seul enjeu étant la surprise des renversements. J’aime le déséquilibre, la bascule, le moment où tout va s’écrouler et que je dois tout rattraper, le mouvement de balancier. J’avance à la pagaie." [excerpt from Motoco website]
