Jeanne Richer

With a background in Arts education and subsequently Interior Design, Jeanne Richer put aside certain artistic activities to pursue a teaching career in College and University. After having returned to pencils and brushes intensively for the last fifteen years, she has participated in solo and group exhibitions as well as humanitarian events.

'' In my opinion, drawing is closely linked to painting. Whether it be a living model drawing or one based on observation, it is essential to my artistic approach and to my desire to represent the world…the world. Whether it be through acrylic or oil, painting is a natural continuation of my explorations in drawings and sketches which I pursue on a regular basis…explorations that nourish and inspire me.

I draw as I paint…I paint as I draw…I like the first gesture without any re-touching which thus beckons the emerging energy. For this reason, Alla prima paint suits my intention to seize the moment, to work in a rapid motion, to see the object as a whole in order to capture in a few strokes the light of that instant which will never come back. The titles of my paintings, often playful and evocative, participate in a narrative by offering a context and a set up; each spectator can then, if so desired, invent a story and thus contribute to complete the artwork.''
