ARTIST STATEMENT

Nathalie Lépine is one of those painters who hesitate to talk about their work. She will only venture to say that her most fervent wish is to paint « invitations to a voyage » and to evoke the viewer's emotions.

She translates the complexity of the human, and particularly the feminine, condition in hyper-simplified lines. Then she works to enrich the paint itself to intensify the subject matter.
 

On her St Martin island, she started to explore the topics of the ocean, fascinated by the spectacular show “Madame Nature” offers every day. She treats her landscapes and seascapes the same way, with pure lines and extremely deep textures.
