Beatrice Archinard

Beatrice Archinard - painter, draftsman
"The first thing that attracted me was the smell of painting, of the turpentine. Then, the colours, the luminous vivacity of pure pigments."

Béatrice Archinard is a plastics artist who was born in Geneva.  Her artwork unfolds in a range of formats including painting, sculpture and engraving.

Art, a family history

Béatrice Archinard discovered art in the château of her great-grandfather when a cousin asked her to pose for some portraits.  During these sittings, she encountered the smells associated with painting and the purity of pigments.  So, she asked her cousin to teach her to paint.  She then followed several courses in order to learn more about the different techniques that interested her the most.  This was how she learned about modelling at the School of Decorative Arts but also about engraving and sculpture in private workshops.

Art as an inner necessity

For Béatrice Archinard, art imposes itself on beings who could not live without it.  It is a pressing need to create, an abundance that bubbles up in the head of an artist.  The artistic work of Béatrice Archinard manifests itself in a figurative style that could be called “naïve.” More often than not, it represents landscapes or scenes from daily life, whether on a large format canvas or in a small engraving, in order to convey her emotions, her dreams or even ephemeral visions that have appeared to her.

National recognition

The artistic works of Béatrice Archinard have been shown at numerous public and private exhibitions in Switzerland, her native country, but also in France and Bulgaria.  In 2005, one of her works was given the « Jury’s Choice Award » at the Art Air Festival.  Her work was also selected in 2013 for the Festival of Graphic Art which was organised by the city of Geneva.
