ARRIETTI Fabienne (French, b. 1956)
It is the working of the pictorial material which interests Arietti, as shown in both her technique and her works. In 1973, the artist enrolled at ENSAAMA in Paris, after graduating with a BTS degree in applied arts (architecture section). At ENSAAMA, Arietti developped her creativity, and had the time to hone her unusual technique, abandoned by the painters of today.
In a sort of reconciliation with historical painting techniques, Arietti creates her artistic material herself : she crushes the pigments which serve as the base for her chromatic melanges, and then patiently superposes multiple layers of glaze. Her works, composed of these materials, are those of a confirmed painter.
