About C. Lyaudet
Living in the Nantes area of western France, C. Lyaudet was surrounded by art her whole life. She would watch her father, an artist as well,, paint and sculpt from a young age. It came as no surprise that C. Lyaudet’s path naturally led to becoming an artist herself.
In 2002, C. Lyaudet graduated from Ecole supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Cornouaille in Quimper, France. Majoring in Scenography. But it wasn’t until last year in 2020 where she could finally call herself an artist: she has only just embarked on a new creative journey and she intends to embrace every aspect of it, without any limitations in practising techniques or mediums and no obligations to limiting her art to a specific style. C. Lyaudet’s driving force is inspiration, experimentation, discovery and curiosity.
C. Lyaudet’s paintings, a romance between the abstract and organic
lyaudet’s figurative-abstract paintings express a certain depth and emotion that steams from an unconscious imagery. Her creations question the definition of femininity: what does it symbolize? How is it represented on both a personal scale and universally? These themes are conveyed through a vector of energy that are inspired by nature and the natural form.
Studying scenography and having a history in performing arts has influenced the composition of C. Lyaudet’s paintings. There’s movement and gesture in the subject, as if she is performing for the viewer.
C.Lyaudet’s intricate ink wash technique involves washing and drying each layer of colour before moving onto the next. To create each layer, mediums vary from acrylics and watercolour inks to wood ashes, squid ink or indian ink.
WHY A ‘Lyaudet’ MIGHT BE RIGHT FOR YOU
Lyaudet’s work is indicative of a living organism: ever evolving, changing, growing. She’s always creating and painting, evolving her ever-transforming body of work.
The paintings are emotional landscapes and through time and each layer leaves a track, a story, a synaesthesia of emotion. The paintings are complex constructions of a succession of plans and lucidities. Details that are not obvious at first sight are observed at a later viewing. Her work is captivating and meditative. It’s intimate and relatable: they echo a part of each and every one of us.
