Art Plural Gallery in Singapour has recently announced an inauguration of the event devoted to French artist Fabienne Verdier, on 25 January 2013. The exhibition will run until 9 March 2013 and will present her latest drawings and large-size paintings.
Fabienne Verdier gets inspiration from life and the fleeting nature of things and beings. She quickly proved to be a major figure in traditional ink painting, inspired by her training in China. She does a lot of research on the depth of colour.
Born in Paris in 1962, she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Toulouse in 1983. The following year, she received a grant and went to the Szechuan Fine Arts Institute, in Chongqing, China. For over ten years she studied philosophy, painting and aesthetics. She published Passagère du silence : dix ans d’initiation en Chine (A Passenger of Silence: Ten Years of Inititation in China), regarding this period of her life. Her works show evidence of the deep influence the training in calligraphy and other traditional Chinese arts had on her. Some of her works entered the permanent collections of the Cernuschi museum and Centre Pompidou in Paris. She exhibited at numerous galleries throughout the world and is currently working on a project in cooperation with Jean Nouvel, for the National Museum of Modern Art in China.
