When I create, it is my way to communicate with the outside world. With each painting, there is a special dialogue that is intimate. As a result, I aim to provoke an emotional reaction in the viewer. Sometimes it is in the form of a question; sometimes it is simply a feeling or a mood that comes about. Regardless of its interpretation, I strive to inspire.
I favor abstract painting and use a minimalistic approach in my work. To me simplicity is about bringing order to complexity. When the work is streamlined, it enables the mind to expand. Only then can imagination happen.
I love depth and textures. So working with oil paint, pigments and different mediums allow me to create a work that is rich and interesting. I prefer to work large as it creates a stronger focal point that captures the viewer’s attention.
Painting isn’t what I do it is simply who I am.
Brigitte Balbinot, Artist, was born in Lausanne, Switzerland. Over the years, Brigitte has traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. These experiences have contributed to define her as an Artist. In 1988, a visit in Paris was a turning point. At the Pompidou Museum, the discovery of Salvador Dali’s work “The Persistence of Memory”, in which melting watches rest in an eerily calm landscape inspired her to create art that convey self-reflection and inspiration. Her work is currently being shown in galleries in the US and Canada and has been added to private collections and commercial spaces in North America and Europe. Brigitte divides her time between her two studios located in South Florida and the province of Quebec.
