The start of the series a work on Dante's Divine Comedy. In "Comedie Humaine" we are confronted with our most beautiful and most dangerous enemy: ourselves.
Cécile Guicheteau, 1974 Cholet (FR), is a contemporary artist. After graduating in art from the Pivaut institute in Nantes, for years she has worked in Paris as a decorator for television and collaborated with numerous galleries. In 2008 she published "Tortueuse Fantasy", with Michel Archimbaud, author of the last interviews with Francis Bacon. She has carried out several exhibitions abroad: Italy, USA, Canada, Japan and the Grand Palais in Paris. In 2016 she completed a permanent exhibition at the Di Tucheng Museum in China after spending 45 days there for an artistic residence. In 2017/2018 she exhibited at the Torre dos Cielos gallery in Japan and later won the UNESCO Open-Air Museum project (2019) in Praiano, on the Amalfi Coast. Her works are present in museums and private collections.
She says about herself: I don't try to be a witness of my time, I don't try to comment on anything, the universe that I express is part of my inner world, stuff of writing or legends. All this comes through me and ends up on the canvas together with my experiences. For some time now I have been trying to forget what I have learned in such a way as to let my childish hand guide my work.
