Florence-Louise Petetin

Born in 1967

Lives and works in Marseilles

Florence Louise Petetin's work has developed in several phases over the past 10 years, culminating in her most recent researches on landscape. These researches were particularly performed during three visits to India, themselves marked by a lengthy, almost ethnological stay, in village communities of the North, with an altogether specific relation to the natural and domestic environment. In this experience, the usual landmarks of landscape painting have found a source of questioning which has prompted Florence Louise Petetin to incorporate this experience in her pictorial work. Her performance in the refuge at Saint Jean du Puy (Trets) has made it possible to give an initial presentation of this work, which continues in more recent attempts and in a way of thinking that is still in progress.
