Melanie Authier

It appears to me this style of painting seems somewhat on trend right now maybe? I do really like Melanie Authier's paintings alot.

'Authier's paintings, bring together visual contradictions into one imaginary space. By drawing upon the histories of abstraction and the strategies of representation, she presents improbable environments. A sense of disorientation comes about through the way in which colour, texture, line and shape compete for room within the canvas. Each work presents a brimming jostle of oppositions that the viewer is invited to bring into a certain order.'
