Nathalie Gribinski (b. 1963 in Algiers, Algeria) is a French-American
artist living in Chicago, USA. After getting her law degree in Paris,
she moved to Chicago in 1992, where she earned a B.A. in Art from
Columbia College. Her fine-art has evolved in lock-step with her graphic art.
Her artistry was shaped in the heart of Paris - particularly Montparnasse, which was womb to artistic expression in the 1920s, les Années Folles (the Crazy Years). In the 1930s it was the heart of intellectual and artistic life in Paris. Her youth was spent vacationing in Provence and
Avignon, amongst those searching for wonder in the heat of lavender fields and ancient castles, turning sceneries from the past into what she refers to as the “Tourlicoulis world”. Such a tension – between an inspiration from the “old” South of France and an hyper-modern type of abstract art – makes her experience close to Van Gogh’s one.
Her other artistic influences are Miró, Kandinsky, Klee, Bacon, and Picasso.
About my artwork
My work is playful and light. Shapes interact like oxygen bubbles, free from each other but animated by the same curvy spirit. They condense in sensual curves I called Tourlicoulis, which form funny and childish characters, explode into waves of light. They sometimes sink into harmonious deep seas... The dance is everlasting - carefree shapes,
indeed, but by essence genuine joy. The dance is not only depicted,
it is aesthetically happening.
