“Josette Marie Lucette – Bathers” is a work by the contemporary painter Cécile Colombo.
In her series of Bathers she presents women in beachwear, generous of 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 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.
