Julie Bessard’s work shows a powerful gesture, a kind of internally tested organic rhythm that is not figurative, but is a pure product of visual and emotional effect. Julie Bessard gives to oil pastels a materiality that transports the viewer into an abstraction specific to this medium and painting, by tinkering, scraping, repelling, erasing, using the support as a palimpsest where the memory of one colour will enrich another. This work is a dialogue with the lived experience, a way of fixing on paper the fleeting visual, tactile and emotional sensations felt. Each work presented, painted, sculpted or drawn has something to tell, to say, to become unique in the eyes of the one who will allow these colours, these forms to come to her.
