BIOGRAPHY

complete biography in french here

Swiss artist. Self-taught. Lives and works in Cully, Bourg-en-Lavaux (CH).

“Painting this world allows me to fully feel my belonging to it. The spectacle offered by nature is sublime and constantly renewed. It’s my common thread and my fuel. Without him, I would be mute. Painting, photography, mixed techniques are only tools to let emerge this energy that she gave me. I combine techniques, materials, colors together, looking for this primitive vibratory energy. When I feel it, then I know I’m right »

Swiss artist born in 1963, Christine Lavanchy explores painting and photography in a unique journey that is akin to experimentation: the fusion between the two genres is sometimes so surprising that the gaze is confused, not really knowing what is offered to him. Passionate about mountains, freedom, wide open spaces, it was during two trips to Patagonia that she discovered what would give meaning to her work: nature in all its splendor and virginity. These stays in southern lands will mark her deeply and allow her to express in a very personal way this symbiosis between art and the world.  Renato Hofer, Accrochages.

The work of Christine Lavanchy is the eye that listens, it is ice that meets the sun, dreams that become matter, and effort becomes pleasure. This world approaches the secret of the mountain. To be in front of a work by Christine is to BE. Joe Boehler, ABPI Foundation
