Katherine Dubourdieu (peinture)
Exhibition in Clermont-Ferrand from June 8th to July 8th, 2018.
Katherine Dubourdieu is an artist with an atypical background. A dancer and a choreographer, she got her hand on the painting brush from Sonia Kouyoumdjian, and followed formations in well-being and art-therapy, which aspects are significant in her paintings.
Katherine Dubourdieu paintings are characterized by a very smooth palette, with pastel nuances due to the absorption of the oil by the Lotka paper, and by the diversity of the supports : Lotka paper, either by itself or glued on hessian or on boarded canvas, linen, etc. But most of all, they are suffused with great poetry, with characters full of serenity, evoking by their attire and posture people from faraway lands — but who come actually from her spiritual universe.
