About Mercedes SORET

Mercédès SORET is a French artist born in 1971 in the municipality of Elbeuf. She grew up in Rouen and currently lives and works near Alençon.

In her works several exercises are mixed: that of oil painting on canvas and that of the reinterpretation of the main subject, which are mainly sculptures. Thanks to a digital metamorphosis and the addition of colours, she offers these wonders of the past a new existence in the world of contemporary art. She chose the quality of the oil to be able to work in transparency, make colour gradients or accentuate the contours, according to the subject that inspires her.

Education

As a piano teacher in various schools and musical associations in her native region, it was in 2006 that she decided, when she arrived near Alençon, to devote herself fully to drawing and painting, which she had practised since she was a child.

Events

Member of Independent Artists of Lower Normandy since 2011, she also received awards: Public Prize at the 2011 exhibition in Falaise, Mention of Excellence at the inauguration of the Center of Art and Creation 2014 in Aulnay-sous-Bois, Honorable Mention at the 2015 exhibition at the Saphira & Ventura Gallery in New York, Departmental Council Award at the 2015 Salon of the City of Caen.
