BIOGRAPHY     BIOGRAFIA      BIOGRAPHIE  

Born in Paris April 9, 1964. Lives and works in Langrune, Normandy.

 

Rebellious by nature, Sophie Dumont left the capitale to live a few years in the Caraïbes then Spain and finally in Marocco. She stocks load of images and colours that she will carefully keep deep in her memory. Back to France, she makes the jump and seizes the brush. From her early youth, she is immersed in the world of painting, through her paternal grandmother’s drawings, Henriette Dumont, who sketches all the time, her children and grandchildren with a stroke which  ressembles that of Matisse.

 

Sophie Dumont takes an interest in Art History, works several years, searches, discovers to truly realize herself around 2007. Her style becomes stronger, the layers multiply on the canvas, letting a beach or some cliffs appear to whomever wants to discover them.

 

Her work in oil takes all its value in the successive layers, and the transparencies in various shades of grey and white.

 

 

Critic

 

 

Sophie DUMONT’s abstract is not a concept, it is an approach where each canvas builds itself around a graphic design put into perspective by the colour.

 

The drawing can evoke the contour of a body or the meanders of a landscape. It is only the unpremeditated interpretation of a figurative idea which takes other shapes in space.

 

The canvas gets structured around a play of curves and lines filtering the lights.

 

It is in this refined structure that the palette of often contrasted tonalities enters. But the substance is never rough, drawing from its maturation of lyric effects which are the results of a creative work of the material. The knife shapes the material into successive layers which merge into a combination of sparkling colours.

 

The underlying presence of the different substrata creates this vibration born from the contrast between material and colours to give to the representation its own life, devoid of any reference. The eye of the viewer, far from being guided, is invited to travel freely in the canvas. His perception is only the expression of his own emotions, simply subject to the effect of modulations transcribed by the artist, and which explains this permanent relation between works, with at times changing aspects and mind, but that symbolize a coherent and sincere approach.
