French artist born in 1942, France Mitrofanoff has produced numerous exhibitions and monumental works; Her practice can be placed at the border between the lyrical abstraction (in a frenzy of painting texture: stains, drippings, splashes... ) on the one hand and and the visual pleasure of perfectly articulated shapes on the other.

Her works from the beginning of her career are in the lineage of the COBRA painters. The strength of the forms and the explosion of contours set the colors free of the constraints imposed by drawing. The colors are fluid and without restraint, and they get carried away and transform into enigmatic shapes that depict moods and feelings rather than objects.
