Mireille Lopez

Painter

Mireille Lopez loved writing from her childhood; letters spoke to her. She also drew, escaping into her imagination, cultivating it as she practised. After studying science at university, she qualified as an industrial pharmacist. Her discovery of works by Cy Twombly, Jack Whitten, Frantisek Kupka, Georges Mathieu, Hans Hartung, and Zao Wou-Ki was an artistic revelation that led her to give free rein to her initial creative inclination. 

Colors of the Feeling
A feeling can be associated with a series of colours in a sequence of emotions. It can be bright, joyful, deep, vivid, brilliant, dull, explosive, multiple, harmonious, mixed, superimposed, opaque, transparent, graduated, nuanced, faded or erased, of which this series is the abstract expression.
