  • On the paths of the Var, painter Claudia Wypych harvests the earth.
    On canvas, she creates interior landscapes, pots and draperies subtly dressed in the soft hues of the earth.
    Her works dialogue with the visitor's intimacy, and soothe.

  • The earth, gathered from the Pays de Fayence countryside and the paths of the Var, is crushed, sifted and then sprinkled onto the canvas.
    This is the "peinterre" technique:
    the result of his research and explorations in his artistic approach,

    Mr. Gérard Saccoccini, President of the Tourrettes Héritage Association and founder of the Musée à Ciel Ouvert de Tourrettes, which features one of artist Claudia Wypych's works, said:
    "Plato called science the daughter of wonder. With sensitivity and gentleness, Claudia transfers this reflection to painting, taking us into a dreamlike universe filled with poetry.

    By projecting tangible or evanescent forms beyond their visible limits, she demonstrates that perspectival graphics enable the reconstruction of space and reality.

    A reality that is embedded in an artificial concept so suggestive that it generates images that are ghosts of the real world, in a masterful exercise in the restitution of true illusionist realism.

    Like his still-life compositions, to which the inclusions of earth from our hills add matter, relief and color, like his beetles and geckos frozen in the eternity of a silent life, like his faux marbles that you just want to caress...

    Achievements that reflect a beautiful, serene soul and great talent."
