After a first career as an illustrator and photographer in advertising, Françoise took the turn of painting fifteen years ago to reinvent the work of portrait painter. His artistic signature, faces in tight framing, made with oil and knife, all in color. Painting is her spine, which makes her live, keeps her standing. In her own way, she remakes the human face in each of her paintings, with knocks, with knives, scars on her face. The bursts of life that emerge from his paintings pass suddenly with the canvas. The color is launched like a projectile. Fluorescent paint, fundamental element of these creations since the origin, brings a double reading of the original work according to its natural lighting or ultraviolet.
