Through her works, Charline Bourcier manages to merge pairs of opposite things, such as figurative and abstractions, opacity and transparency, appearance and disappearance, or flatness and depth. Focusing on dislocations and differences, the artist creates dynamic space visible in her paintings. She uses both personal images and images from the web as a source of inspiration. Complex and layered, Bourcier’s paintings emerge from a dialogue between figurative images and dripping water paint and brush strokes.
