Artist’s Story

As a teenager, Patil Balian eagerly immersed herself in the many books dedicated to the Renaissance arts, which were kept in her grandfather's library / The discovery of this universe which is rich in shapes and colours led her to devote herself to the practice of both drawing and painting / Until the age of twenty-three, the young aspiring artist focused most of her attention on portraiture /

She became passionate about behavioural sciences and more specifically about psychoanalytical interpretations of dreams / From then on, it became evident to her that collage was the ideal means of artistic expression / This process is based essentially on a set of symbolic and visual associations and she constantly pushes its boundaries / This technique offers her more freedom and surprises than traditional graphic techniques /

Thus, driven both by aesthetic research and her interest in social themes - such as childhood, resilience, the relationship between civilization and nature - Patil composes each of her creations as if "she was writing a poem, a haiku or a metaphor". Between intentions and automatic writing, the artist's approach reveals incredible exquisite corpses, whose hidden meaning deserves our attention / Her collages are skilfully researched from a graphic and symbolic point of view and they conceal a thousand and one details that stretch our imagination to its limits /
