Artist Statement+Biography
Francoise Nielly lives in a world of images. She has explored the different facets of 'image' all her life , through painting, photography, roughs, illustrations and virtual, computer generated animated graphics. It is clear now that painting is her direction and her passion. She gets her sense of space and construction from her father, who was an architect. Growing up in the South of France where she lived between Cannes and Saint-Tropez, is never far from the light, the color sense and the atmosphere that permeates the South of France. This is coupled with her studies at the Beaux arts and Decorative Arts, and her sense of humor and of celebration.

Francoise Nielly's painting is expressive, exhibiting a brute force ; a fascinating vital energy. Oil and knife combine to sculpt her images from a material that is , at the same time, biting and incisive ; charnel and sensual.
Whether she paints the human body or portraits, the artist takes a risk : her painting is sexual, her colors free, exuberant, surprising, even explosive, the cut of her knife incisive, her color pallet dazzling.
Francoise Nielly is a passionate woman who loves life, wide open spaces, sushi, blue lagoons, the Internet, humor, butter, men, gherkins (with a preference for men), books, New-York and Vancouver.
Resolutely inscribed in her epoch, she is an accomplished artist ; 20 years of artistic expression explain the maturity of her work and the perfect mastery of her art.
She lives and paints in Paris near Montmartre, shows and sells her work in Europe, in Canada and in the United States.
Her next grand exhibition will be in London, in 2004.
