Jacqueline Bachmann, visual artist-painter

Passionate, curious and open to the world, drawing, painting and all creative activities guided me from an early age. After several university courses and various professional experiences in Switzerland and France, I also discovered another school of life, very complementary, in Brazil, then during my humanitarian commitments in Africa and Asia. Sensitive to music, I also learned a lot from contact with jazz musicians, by organizing concerts and tours. I sailed and let myself be carried away by diverse cultures, varied climates and striking contrasts. For the path of painting to impose itself on me, I had to expose myself to the storms and tempests of existence, to the ardent sun of Africa, to the freshness inspired by the Tibet.

At 39, I completed my training by studying Fine Arts at the University of Bern. Subsequently, in parallel with my personal pictorial work, I set up and led artistic creation workshops in Geneva for adults with psychological difficulties but with great inner richness.

My painting is the culmination of these experiences. Traveling the planet and the inner world taught me the freedom to be myself. After a decade working with materials and mixed techniques in abstract compositions, for the past twenty years I have been painting figurative and realistic works exclusively in oil.

Deeply inspired by landscapes, lights, reflections, I compose my images and create my colors by observing the plant, mineral and aquatic environment. This meticulous approach and this attention to detail reflect for me a sacred dimension of art and a hymn to nature. Each of my works is a search in itself, an exchange with the visible and the invisible, a concern for a fair balance, a search for harmony and contrast.
