Frédérique Albou - France

Frédérique Albou paints with acrylic or gouache, on small and medium sizes, and draws especially by using Indian ink, using the point to point technique. She follows the principle that a line is a succession of points. Point in the line.

It can take her a lot of time to fill a page, but she makes it in a state of serene "meditation" and finds her internal resource there.

Her privileged themes of inspiration are Africa, waves, trees, and peacocks... but she leaves generally her imagination run free: the architecture of a city, for example, can give her ideas of varied handwrittings. She has no preliminary motionless direction and she likes saying that the blank page is " her space of freedom ".
