Everything is energy, light, information and awareness.
Catherine Maddens, was born in 1965 in Normandy, she lives in Paris.
She experiments with different formats and materials to create colorful abstract spaces, in her creative process, pure consciousness pre-exists and her own individuality disappears.
She explores the passages between the invisible - the void, her inner visions - energy and the visible - materiality.
She is passionate about altered states of consciousness and the healing and creation processes.
It seeks to channel source energy to express the transcendent movements of Life and its potentials, and to provide a visual and spiritual experience.
Color plays a central role in her painting, she also regularly uses the color Gold for her singularity and as an alchemical symbol of transformation. She regularly practices the blessing of her paintings to complete them (blessing, from the Latin benedictio, de bene, bien, et dicere, dire).
She seeks to develop vibrational chromatic resonances.
She is interested in the notions of holographic universe, vacuum and wave in the infinitely small, the quantum approach, nature / ecology, and the place of women in our societies.
