French multidisciplinary artist, Virginie Hucher begins every painting outdoors. “I need to see nature and a corner of the sky.” Trees, forests, meadows, nature is Hucher’s muse. “My whole life has been based on the balance between nature and the city.” Movement is central to Hucher’s artistic process. The former dancer uses her whole body and a stick to carve large symbols into sand, snow and soil which eventually wash away and later find permanence on a canvas. “My mother introduced me to dancing when I was only two-years-old. My father taught me French boxing so I’ve been practicing the two disciplines for years. I literally grew up around notions of softness and strength.” The theme of opposites plays out in every painting, with two forms or colours conversing with another. Hucher’s work is bold and lyrical. Have a look around; these images of her sketching into a sandy beaches and snow in France are quite beautiful.
