Alliance Française d’Ahmedabad is pleased to welcome the french painter and writer Anny Blaise Resnik in the artist residency. Figurative, symbolism, and abstraction were the steps of ABR artistic progression. She favors the creative act, dropping a certain academism without rejecting it, but her need to refine, to go to the essence, led her to abstraction, leaving full freedom to gesture and movement. The importance of the black and the white and collages (mixed). The challenge to let play different tones and decline all shades from black to grey, from red to rose, from white to beige is a real quest for her. She composes her works by inserting collages of fabrics, Chinese paper, gold and silver leaf and working on the balance of “empty and full”, materials and plain surfaces, brilliance and mat. Most of her research works are concentrated on effects resulting from associating materials both from Fine Arts and building sector. Interaction of all these elements leaves place to chance and guide the framing of her paintings. “sérendipitie” (happy chance and unexpected discovery) of Soulages summarizes her artistic approach. Random effects from these combinations are integrated in her creations. Her training in psychoanalysis plays a part in her creative approach. Facing the blank canvas, as she progresses in her work in total concentrating, almost apnea, completely cutting herself from her environment, she attempts to reach the deepest possible release.
