About Laurence Rapaillerie
My painting are usually based on personal experience. I am more interested to make you feel something than by using a perfect technique. I particularly like to play with light and shadows. The source of my inspiration are images I gather when walking in the forests, during trips abroad, walking in cities... It is not important if the final painting does not show as I thought it would. The painting is created on the moment and I do not 'think' about it. It comes out of my fingers. When painting, I enter another world, another dimension. I like vivid colors, especially the yellows, oranges, reds and blues. The subjects I paint are multiple, it can be persons, cities, faces of people from here or from other origins, children... always inducing a specific feeling and in a specific light.
I am following art classes in Belgium (Académie des arts visuels de Molenbeek in Brussels)
