"When we ask an artist for a certain coherence, a continuity in his production, we enclose the person in a framework that can only restrict, reduce, paralyze his creativity" Luc Ferry

Sylvie JULKOWSKI-EGARD

Introducing Sylvie JULKOWSKI-EGARD

I studied oil painting in DERIC's studio at the Douai Art School from 2006 to 2009. I've been working as a professional painter since 2010. I work on several themes: in the "MES PETITES NANAS" series, I draw inspiration from situations I observe in society or in my environment, and interpret them in my own way (Circe 2.0 transposed to our times, as her story is universal; Te Video (I see you in Latin) about our ultra-connected society, surveillance cameras, telephones, etc.). I work in collaboration with my daughter, who serves as a model for the scenes I use to support my work. I sometimes use a few symbols to help me read my work. " REFLEXIONS SUR LE TEMPS QUI PASSE" (REFLECTIONS ON THE PAST TIME): I have chosen to paint transport vehicles in the manner of the Vanités of yesteryear, i.e. representing the wear and tear of time, rust, holes and decay. I favor a particular framing, bringing the object out of the confines of the painting to make it more imposing. Like us, these vehicles are just passing through, the race of time being inescapable. " PORTRAITS : in portraits, I've always endeavored to render the model's expression faithfully and to portray him or her with a certain realism. Appreciating contrasts, I make clothes more energetic. So I've worked a lot with liquid paint, making drips and sprays, and now I use stencils or make prints. I also have a passion for military subjects, with a recent commission from the town of Douai for the 41st Regiment de Transmissions (1 meter x 3 meters). " URBAN LANDSCAPES": This series is inspired by my many visits to Paris. I capture fleeting moments, preferably in summer, when colors are saturated and contrasts sustained. I paint the lightness and carefreeness that are so sorely lacking in today's world, provoking little "accidents" to make the scene more vibrant and less static. I use bright colors and all kinds of tools according to my favorite technique.

As for my exhibitions, I'm a member of the Artistes Français in Paris (silver medal) and I exhibit every year at the Grand Palais in Art Capital, I also exhibit at the Salon d'Automne in Paris, at the Biennale de VITTEL, in LUNEVILLE, VERSAILLES , in POMPONNE, at the Invalides with the Peintres de l'Armée, etc...
