Cecile Colombo’s bathers elicit all sorts of reactions from visitors to our gallery; the most frequent ones are smiles and benevolent tenderness. The artist is particularly attentive to the making of patterns that tell us about the joyful and positive fashion of the 70s: bright colours, flowers, fruits and geometric patterns, flowery bathing caps…
It is also her own story that she tells us, when as a child in Marseille, she accompanied her aunts to the beach, who themselves met up with their sunbathing and swimming friends. In short, these paintings are full of happy nostalgia and affectionate memories.
