Quick access :
Colette Marchant lives and paints in St Jeannet , a small village in southern France .
An inspired colourist , Colette Marchant abstract painter only works with her fingertips and paint straight from the tubes .
Always haunted by light and Mother Nature , her works have nothing to do with a specific trend . They are the outcome of an everyday search on light , matter and shape to show us the different layers of our world , its depth , its unknown , its diversity .
Emotions arise when facing her paintings and their vibrations in colors and shades.
Let's have a dream.... a dream of discovering a world as suggested by Colette Marchant .
She paints ( or tells ) part of our history , of a time where it was surrounded by myths .
At times , amidst her large shots of straight colours , in the heart of abstraction , little people may seem to come up .
Each work has its message spelled in the flow of colours , the deep black or the firing red .
The message is always simple and vital , it is an invitation to rest the eyes and the soul .
Freedom , light , imagination , voyage are the reasons painting has become a way of life to Colette Marchant .
