Bénédicte Blanc-Fontenille is a multi disciplinary french artist living and working in Miami, a 1985 graduate of l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts with a background in theater.

She works in a variety of formats including paintings as well as sculptures, installations and photography. Her appreciation for mixed media and experimentation has gotten her to use pigments, encaustic wax technique, ink, paper, plaster.

 

Loss, fragility and the evanescence of human things are at the heart of her practice. This exploration stems from knowing of a castle her father used to own that her two siblings grew up in but was taken from them in a family feud. Growing up, it made her aware the fragility and temporary nature of things and their ownership.

 

Now for more than 30 years she has been working on this fragility, and more precisely, how fragility begets loss or voids which in turn invite movement and a succession of moments which she strive to capture in her art.

                          «Time has only one reality, that one of the moment»  Gaston Bachelard.
