Bohemian Devotion

about Stéphanie Chardon

I’m drawing from childhood, on pieces of paper, with everything coming under my hand.
Simply, without thinking or doing it as a work, up to my 19th year of age, when I entered the School of Fines Arts of Beaune, in France.

It’s painting and sculpture that guided my life for 25 years. I was inspired by works of artists like Van Gogh, Matisse, Klimt, Schiele, Picasso, the Classics, the Expressionists, but also, of course, by literature: Bukowski, Nabokov, Mérimée, Lovecraft, Marcel Aimé, the whole fantastic literature of the twentieth century…

So I decided to open my own Gallery where I exposed 15 artists for three years.
Then I became a Drawing teacher.
But this work didn’t let me enough time for my personal work, so I decided to stop it, in order to devote myself to my creations, completely: “The Bohemian Life”.

Two years ago I felt the need to return to drawing. Exhausted by fihgting with clay and paintbrushes. I needed to return to the evidence of a piece of paper, a pencil, and to be in the right place at the right moment. On instant.
Bohemian Devotion

I work with a color ball pen on paper. Because this simple tool takes me of my anguishes of the “White page”, because I like its “regressive” side and because its possibilities are astonishing.

It’s a work about my feelings, sensations, desires and some contradictions. It’s like an oniric way of being. Some times I’m inspired by texts or common expressions but most of all by my
own impressions. From inside or outside.
