Jacqueline Bachmann, contemporary visual artist
Art in any form has always been a part of my universe. Travelling too. I had to
go through the storms and thunders of life, the burning of Africa or the soothing freshness of Tibet to realize, reaching my forties, that painting was really the way
I wanted to express myself. The mysterious world of micro-organism or the beauty and contrasts of people, cultures and places I visited delighted my heart and eyes and became sources of inspiration. Music also has always been important for me. After a decade of work with various materials and mixed technics in abstracts compositions since 20 years I paint with oil in a realistic style, deeply inspired by the nature. Currently, full of energy, I seek to create new sensitive relationships, both imaginary and poetic, between the public and my paintings. I am always on the constantly moving border between elements and various universes, trying to find new visions, other horizons. I paint by materializing the only important thing for me to share: a vision of love, hope, and dreams.
