Françoise Ley (LUX), 2017-18

Born on 04/04/1977 in Luxembourg.

After studying literature and history in Freiburg, Germany, Françoise began intensive studies at the European Academy of Art in Trier (D) (2005-2006). Since the end of 2014, Françoise has been working as a professional artist in the 1535°, a creative centre in Differdange, Luxembourg

Françoise's work is a narrative work that invites the observer to look closely and dive into the different layers, the different stories, and the many details of the paintings.

Gestural moments run alongside graphic elements, and components of great strength and energy coexist with very sensitive elements. Imaginary elements that take us back to our childhood dreams are found side by side with geometric shapes. She likes to "switch the expected associations" (Michèle Destarac).

Literature, especially poetry, and in general any oral or written expression, has a great influence on his work.
