“Bathers in swimming costumes” is a work by the contemporary painter Cécile Colombo.
In her series of Bathers she presents women in beachwear, generous in form and well in their skin. At the gallery, the reactions of passers-by are unanimous. A painting that feels good! The artist mixes several mediums in her paintings. Collage, ink, watercolor paint and acrylic animate the painting. Cécile Colombo has fun creating motifs that take us back to the positive style of the 70s. Flashy colors, drawings of fruits, geometric patterns, flowery bathing caps …
The small format makes you want to assemble the paintings by two or three. The bodies of these bathers assume all in curves and overflow the frame, we love them, we want them all!
It is also her own story that the artist tells in her paintings, when as a child in Provence, she accompanied her aunts to the beach.
“Bathers in swimming costumes” is a painting that overflows with nostalgia and happy memories.Discover the artist
