Lecturer in History of Art, Virginie Delmas nourishes//fuels as much her capacity to marvel at her travels and encounters as she transcribes them in her painting.
Virginie Delmas has always been drawn to fine art and colours and has discovered museums and artistic movements at a very young age.
After her studies at EM Lyon Business School, she naturally pursued her education at Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art in Dijon in classes for adults, and at the CEHA (Centre d'Étude d'Histoire de l'Art), then at Hélène Legrand’s studio in Saint Germain-en-Laye. She carried on and enriched her training in printmaking techniques at Heatherley School of fine art (London) and in Japanese prints beside Rebecca Salter at London Royal Academy.
Her artworks are frequently exhibited and are part of private collections in France, England and the United States.

Artistic approach

The pictorial work of Virginie Delmas feeds itself from her knowledge of great masters but above all by her constant study of the world she lives in and the people she observes.
Sensitive to the transparency of the air and the purity of light, Virginie Delmas is a colorist painter mixing techniques.
Her works are the combination of a gesture, an intention and an unexpected detail. Each fragment of posture, captured on the spot, reveals the poetry in the ordinary. In short, Virginie Delmas singles out the very essence and substance of the world surrounding her.
The vibration of a colour, the reflection of a light, the shimmering of a fabric, the iridescence of a glow are what guides the artist in capturing and conveying those dazzling sparks.
