Contemporary art for the modern world


The colorist Christine Barrès from Bozouls (department of Aveyron) enthusiastically shares with us a series of portraits in oil. All mischievous or dreamers, the colorful characters offer us their sparkling view of the world. At the hinge of the abstract and figurative, her work is born of spontaneity, of fantasy, but especially of energy.

Her paintings are a sweet treat and she is within every image, full of generosity and optimism. Grinning and full of charm and gaiety, the art is the very personal style that the portraitist Christine Barrès creates happily in both small and large formats.

"Free from all influence, I paint as I am. I am deeply linked to the color, I tame it everyday, I consume it without moderation. It is strong and sensitive at the same time, it is generous, it is my life and I love life." - Christine Barres
