Contemporary art for the modern world

Rosine Defontenay

Rosine Defontenay, a material painter born in 1963 in Strasbourg, exhibits at the Defontenay Gallery in Mougins.

"Touching everything, I like to explore new techniques ; to create without following a single path and use the brush as much as the spatula. I use oil for my figurative paintings - portraits of animals and flowers. With the material I evoke textures and reliefs that respond to my passion for archeology and tell a story or deliver a message. I am amazed by life, nature and I learned a lot from observation and experience." - Rosine Defontenay
