Entre l'enseignement qu'elle assure aux ateliers d'Art de la ville et son atelier parisien, Christiane Vielle a entrepris, depuis trente ans, une œuvre exigeante et singulière dans le domaine de l’estampe et celui du livre d’artiste. Une œuvre exigeante par le métier rigoureux et sans faille qu'elle a acquis jour après jour et qui lui permet une expression inventive et rarement tentée dans le domaine de l'estampe. La Nature est la grande inspiratrice de cette œuvre gravé - une nature sélectionnée, travaillée de l'intérieur jusqu'à en extraire quelques signes essentiels : abstraits, pleins de lumière et de texture. Le geste « devient paysage ».
Dans ses livres d'artistes, son travail répond à des textes d'écrivains tout aussi exigeants et rigoureux tels Charles Juliet, Thierry Laget, ou Philippe Jaccottet...
L'univers artistique et sensible qui est le sien a des résonances d'infini, d'océans, de ciels et de poésie qui trouveront en terre bretonne des échos naturels. Venez les découvrir cet été dans la fraicheur de la galerie de la médiathèque des Ursulines.

exchange due to the fact that we have the plan to build an exlibris base in
Chang Zhou. Consequently, we hope that the exlibris organizations can give us
