For Stéphanie Pétri, painting is first of all a pleasure…
the pleasure of giving an emotion…
to make the mountains vibrating…
catch the traces in the powder like calligraphies on the snow…
the snow softens outlines and intensifies contrasts…
Fascinated by curves, the softness of snowy slopes: “the desire we have to throw ourselves in it, to trace our own line… energy and lust…”
Ski is ubiquitous, and snow too !
This is also an homage to all those mountains surrounding us over here : “they all have their own personality, according to the orientation and the light… “Stéphanie likes to discover them by skiing … and then to paint them !!”
I am trying to give the idea of the place, I am hunting beautiful traces after snowfall…I use them in my compositions… sometimes it’s my own traces… and the paintbrush is going to slide in curves like a ski… unctuous on the canvas
