Every once in a while I come across art that screams- Passion…Explosion…Intensity and Francoise Nielly’s knife paintings do that with a bang.
Françoise Nielly’s paintings are expressive, exhibiting a brute force, a fascinating vital energy. She combines oil and knife to sculpt her images. According to her Behance bio, ‘her painting is sexual, her colours free, exuberant, surprising, even explosive, the cut of her knife incisive, her colour pallet dazzling‘.
As MyModernMet.com puts it, “Nielly’s subjects often have a burning gaze and facial expressions that suggest strong and salacious desires. The powerful, fixed stare of her subjects is captivating and viewers can’t help but wonder if there are hidden intentions behind the eyes of these compelling figures“. I couldn’t have described this in better words.
