Brigitte Balbinot tells us, ” When I create, it is my way to communicate with the world. With each painting, there is a special dialogue that is intimate. I aim to provoke an emotional reaction in the viewer. Sometimes it is in the form of a question; sometimes it is simply a feeling or a mood that comes about. Regardless of its interpretation, I strive to inspire”.

“I favor abstract painting and use a minimalistic approach in my work. To me simplicity is about bringing order to complexity. When the work is streamlined, it enables the mind to expand. Only then can imagination happen. I love depth and textures, they remind me of what once was”.

 

"Wasabi" by Brigitte Balbinot

“The philosophy Wabi-Sabi from the Zen Buddhist culture that is centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection plays a definite role in my creative process. My paintings sometimes appear to be “scarred” and “worn”, survivors of a long journey having a story to tell… Working with oil paint, pigments and various mediums allow me to create a work that is rich in substance and interesting to look at. I prefer to work large as it creates a stronger focal point that captures the viewer’s attention”.

Brigitte Balbinot, Artist, was born in Lausanne, Switzerland.  Over the years, she  traveled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and Africa. These experiences have contributed to define her as an Artist.  In 1988, a visit in Paris was a turning point. At the Pompidou Museum, the discovery of Salvador Dali’s work “The Persistence of Memory”, in which melting watches rest in an eerily calm landscape inspired her to create art that  convey self-reflection, emotional response and inspiration.

“My work  is about feelings and emotions”  she says. The use of textures, juxtaposition of numerous layers of paint and special pigments  contribute to add depth and light to her paintings which are meant to be interesting, complex and simple all at the same time.

In a review by Carrie Turner, editor of Fine Art Views (March, 2013), art critic Brian Sherwin is cited, “The compositional structure and use of raw texture in Balbinot’s paintings allow the imagination of the viewer to decipher meaning based on what he or she brings, psychologically speaking, to the viewing experience”.
