Virginie Hucher x Ignant
“Land and sky, land as the body, sky as the soul,” is the aphorism Hucher abides by. While she views these things from a state of balance, it is in their natural contrariness that the artist sees beauty and draws her creativity from. Her works have a deep connection to their surroundings, with their origins in the ‘great outdoors’: whether paint on canvas, ceramics, or sculptures, each is a vibrant visual landscape of color interplay, with bold shapes and wild yet harmonious finishes. “If she finds herself on sandy beaches in Canada, riverbanks in France, or untouched snowy landscapes in Sweden, in each place the nature of the environment and its individual rhythm play a significant role,” explains a statement from her studio.
