Meer over Brigitte Cauquil

Self-taught Brigitte Cauquil finds her inspiration in Provence, more specifically in the villages where the houses have been weathered by time and the walls bear the marks.

Her paintings exude this atmosphere. She uses marble powder, sand and similar materials as the underlying structure of the canvas. Afterwards she adds natural pigments from Provence and acrylic paint. The contrasts of rough and smooth, dark and light, coarse and fine result in a crackled surface. The colors lie on top or penetrate into the grooves and traces of the structure. The chosen color palette is authentic, the earth tones create a feeling of connection and tranquility.
