Les œuvres de l'artiste
Teacher of Applied Arts in the DMA Ceramics Section of École du Gué á Tresmes. To her teaching career, Vinça has also developed her own personal work as an artist.
She started her apprenticeship by studying graphic arts at L’Atelier d’Amore at l’École des Beaux Arts de Paris. She carried on with her studies by completing a degree in Art History.
At a young age she discovered etching and turned towards drawing in a systematic manner.
“Conscious that figuration must be addressed differently and that approaching the real through the line can renew its perception, I put drawing at the centre of my questioning. I talk very little about the real, I limit myself to drawing a flower, a leaf, a tree. Those subjects appear purely under the form of a sketch, a line, a trace, a “simple presence”. A line that I work like a sculpture or even like a calligraphy.”
“The line- abstract or figurative- is always present. And from then on, combinations open: the black line integrate itself to the surface or the colours and even disappears. Through the search for simplification, the abstract line reappears again. But my work defines itself as a dialogue between abstraction and figuration, a constant back and forth journey between those two worlds, mutually enriching each other.”
“Quite recently a new necessity attracted me towards colour without the presence of a sketch or a line. Colour is the expression of a memory, of landscapes. “Colour of the fields” is a work on fragments. This work comes as a renewed introspection, a reminiscence of landscapes, remembered and still present, anchored in my memory or part of my daily environment : an outlook also more open where colour and surface enrich one another and unite in a display of multiple combinations: a surface turning into another. This work reflects my taste for colour; its plenitude, its rowdy and brutal strength which reminds me of the medieval illuminations- so luminous.”
“By its lightness, its whiteness, its timelessness, paper is the best medium on which I draw, etch, stick or use in serigraphy : I often mix those techniques. “
