Various techniques

Drawing, ceramics and embroidery

Anne de Villèle draws, embroiders and works with ceramics, thus diversifying techniques while having the same interrogations around the body.

Drawing has always been her medium of choice: she interweaves organic, biological subjects and plant forms. Anne draws a multitude of lines finely laid next to each other, forming a veil, a fabric, a fiber thrown over the color to give life and flesh to the drawing.

With ceramics, Anne leaves the sheet to play with volume, space, sculpture. Porcelain and stoneware become under her fingers belly shapes or viscera stacked like rings.

Embroidery also offers her a way to transpose her designs onto well-known objects of our daily lives, such as handkerchiefs or tea towel cloth.

Creation an art of living !

The Plastic Artist decorates each parcel and dimension of the human body: biological, cellular, chemical, the circulation of fluids. Binding it together and then transposing it to the plant.

On a daily basis, she has made her art an indispensable element of her balance, making it a point of honor that every day, an action is of the order of creation. Her status gives her all the freedom of her field of action to allow it.

In 2019, she makes Rochefort-en-Terre, her new living environment. She finds there the studio and the different highlighting of her art that she is looking for. The presence of other artists also reinforced her choice.

Anne's approach

“From the beginning I used elements of nature to help me build the body image I wanted to give. I’ve always been fascinated by the patterns of veins, the patterns of rivers seen from the air, the lungs that form like an upside down tree, for me it’s definitely an upside down tree that breathes…
