Born in 1962 in Angers, (France), the artist Anne Brérot creates landscapes that fluctuate between reality and reminiscence.
Passage and feeling: translating the emotions of a landscape
An officer’s daughter, Anne Brérot has kept the feeling of transience from a childhood that was punctuated by numerous house moves. Representing solely the essence of a landscape, she captures its evanescence and emotions. Often a simple image of a landscape does not speak to someone who has not actually experienced it, but Anne Brérot manages to convey it perfectly in all its depth and richness.
The works of Anne Brérot are on wooden panels that are coated with an acrylic binder. The artist constructs her paintings with successive layers of colour. The material is expressed gradually by scraping and erasing certain parts. The perspectives are revealed and the horizons emerge. Glazes are very much in evidence in order to assert the work’s luminosity.
Landscapes from nowhere to everywhere
The universality and the singularity of Anne Brérot landscapes have earned her regular exhibitions in Europe – in France, of course, but also in Spain, Denmark and in the United Kingdom.
