Boulloche, Agnès

ARTWORKS

Born in Paris, France, Agnes spent her childhood in Morocco. Agnes’ life is a game; her playground a thee-ring circus: Paris, the salt-marshes of the Ile de Ré, and the faraway countries of Africa.

As far as she can remember, Agnes has always been the close friend of a population of fabulous beasts, countless chimeras, gorgons and genies. This painting lady lives in a fantastic realm haunted by humanimal creatures dancing, riding on each other and spinning their horned feet through the antique chessboards of extraordinary stone-paved gardens. She is back from the beyond, and dreams with her eyes wide open. You won’t believe it till you see it.

Agnes Boulloche paints in oil on wood panels. She uses the ancient technique of “glaze”, a superposition of thin transparent layers of colors. Agnes also uses many chemical recipes to create its pigments and varnishes.

Agnes uses French format panels. Generally, portraits are realized on a vertical format named “Figure” or F, landscapes on a horizontal format called “Paysage” or P, and marines on a horizontal format, panoramic, called “Marine” or M. Each dimension corresponds to a number 0 to 120, named “point”. We talk about a painting 6F, 10P or 25M.
