Françoise Nielly was born in Marseille brought up near Cannes and Saint-Tropez and is now living in Paris.
In her own way, Françoise Nielly paints the human face in each of her paintings. And she paints it over and over again, with slashes of paint across their face.
Moments of life that arise from her paintings are born from a clinch with the canvas. Color is launched like a projectile. Her energy gives each colour tone the intensity of a sound vibration.
Paint spots are like music keys, dissonant and noisy just like life itself. While meeting on the canvas these spots of paint harmonize and give to each of the portraits its own soul.
Françoise Nielly’s portraits have the ironic beauty of fantasies or that of ghosts, with fascinating and fascinated eyes.
Françoise Nielly opposes, imposes to our vision these portraits, each of them taken from a different angle, each time repeated, exposing the violent face of life.
