Displaying a love for nature alongside a will to protect it, award-winning French painter Françoise Amelot captures scenes with a wonderful impressionistic realism. Her modestly-sized canvases burst forth with beautiful bouquets, lush gardens and landscapes, and quiet still-lifes steeped in rich light. Her brushwork and handling of paint display an unassuming yet poised confidence in composition.
Amelot’s work is unique in this stillness, an inviting aura that allows for audiences to place themselves within the scene. Clear, calm waters reflect surrounding foliage and crisp azure skies that span to the limits of sight. In many paintings one will discover an unpretentious environmental message, where clearings in the vegetation give way to discarded rusting cans or other refuse. Yet she gives the same aesthetic attention to litter as she would any leaf, cloud, or stone, but with the awareness that this is an unwelcome guest in the natural scenery.
Amelot grew up and settled outside of Paris, deriving much of her artistic inspiration from long walks in the French countryside.
