A propos de Laurence AMELIE:
Laurence Amélie, daughter of
renowned Swiss abstract painter Gérard Schneider, continues the family
tradition of painting.
Laurence paints from her
idyllic country setting near Fontainebleau. It is the house where her father, a
contemporary of Picasso, painted during the highly active mid-century abstract
Laurence paints using acrylic
and spends days preparing the background colour washes of her work, gradually
building subtle multiple tones which give great depth to every
piece. Laurence is inspired by nature, the seasons, the changing light and
the disarray of wild rambling country flowers. In each of her subjects
Laurence’s rarest quality is the movement that she establishes in her
paintings, she is always able to portray the soft illusion of forms being blown
in a gentle breeze. This dream like quality is perhaps the romantic element her
followers fall in love with.
Laurence Amélie is well known
in France. Her client base stretches overseas to the
United States, where she spends 2 months of the year in California painting for
her continually growing devotees.
