Château de Villandry – “Les fruits dansés”

After working for many years with choreographers, Raphaèle Bernard-Bacot has produced a series of pastel monotypes called “Les fruits dansés”. The lines and subject matter in these new works tell the story of years spent working on this motif, of seizing the rhythm of the body in movement. The freedom of her brushstroke and composition give these so-called “still lifes” a very living feel. Her work as an artist is maturing to encompass the rhythm of the season.
