Dominik Senaq is a French painter whose work is inspired by Aboriginal art and Expressionism. She is currently living in Bordeaux.
Art: a vocation
In the ‘80s, Senaq was a part of a collective of artists. She did a series of exhibitions and happenings in Paris whilst studying art and engraving. In the ‘90s, she decided to go back to art school in Bordeaux, a city she has not left since, and to participate in multiple exhibitions as well as other artistic events in the region. For Senaq, art is for those who use it as a way to express their relationship to society and others. It is an invitation for dialogue, imbued with a certain spirituality.
Senaq’s paintings are, first and foremost, inspired by Monet’s Impressionist paintings, and his very colourful approach, which progressively steered towards abstraction, as well as Cézanne’s landscapes and Manet’s still life paintings. Nevertheless, his inspiration is also sourced from Aboriginal Australian art. Senaq is fascinated by its profound links with history and by its status as a means of expression that is fundamental for the survival of a culture.
