“La bande des cinq – bathers” (The Gang of Five), is a work by the contemporary painter Cécile Colombo.
In her series of Bathers she presents women in beachwear, generously shaped and comfortable 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, watercolour and acrylic paint enliven the painting. Cécile Colombo has fun creating motifs that take us back to the positive style of the 70s. Flashy colours, drawings of fruits, geometrical patterns, flowery bathing caps…
The small format makes you want to put the paintings together in pairs or threes. The bodies of these bathers, all curvaceous and overflowing from 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.
“La bande des cinq – bathers” is a painting that overflows with nostalgia and happy memories.Discover the artist
