The universe of Claude Sauquet paintings is at the same time feministic and evenly intimate. The colour and the perspective voluntary distorted are at the centre of her art.
The half-toned colours are meticulously chosen and remind the Asian range of colours. She creates, in her way, a unique kind of paintings blending the European technique with the Asian style.
She purposely doesn’t go into things in any depths focusing on the intimate aesthetic feminine side.
After studying paintings and photography in an art school in Paris, she moved to Hong Kong in 1997 and she discovered the fascinating traditional Chinese art. She immediately integrated this style in her work. After few exhibitions in Hong Kong and Tokyo where she was seduced by the Japanese etching stamps.
She then went on to live in Tokyo and Singapore, where continued her work mixing european and Asian style.
She now lives in California, in the San Francisco area, and she opened a new page in her creativity.
