Painter

Born in Paris on April 9, 1964. Lives and works in Langrune sur Mer (Normandy) Sophie Dumont moved away from France to live for a few years in the West Indies, in Spain and finally in Morocco. She stored up a host of images and colours which she carefully kept in the back of her mind. On her return to France in 1991 she took the plunge and picked up her brushes. From her earliest childhood, she was immersed in the world of painting, through the drawings of Henriette Dumont, her paternal grandmother, who sketched her children and grandchildren with a style reminiscent of Matisse. Sophie is also proud to belong, through her great-great-grandmother, Charles Baltet's first wife, Hortense Mignard, to an illustrious family of Trojan origin, that of the painters Nicolas and Pierre Mignard. Sophie Dumont is interested in art history, works for several years, searches, discovers and fully realizes herself around 2007. Her work becomes stronger, the layers multiply on the canvas, revealing a beach or cliffs to whoever wants to discover them. His work in oil takes all its value in the successive layers and transparencies in shades of grey and white.

Sophie Dumont, an inveterate reader, plunges us into the world of books and libraries, which she paints in materials that border on abstraction. An object of infatuation, fascination or desire, the book has been the subject of countless representations in Western painting since the Middle Ages. The series began in 2016 and is still relevant today.

PAYSAGES

Gallery of abstract landscapes. Work on fields in Normandy. The landscape evolves in modulations with blurred outlines, to suggest volumes rather than to draw a precise motif. The palette, in often more muted tones, suggests more than it imposes a resembling construction. The freedom of the artist joins that of the spectator, invited to enter the canvas to bring his interpretation and to let himself be invaded by his own emotions. The first canvas of this series was born in 2017. The canvases evolve constantly while keeping this material which symbolizes his work. This series is still in progress.

BORD DE MER

The omnipresent landscape is hidden from view, leaving furtive apparitions that drown in the pearly and translucent light of the Côte de Nacre in Normandy. The subliminal vision of a horizon cut by distant cliffs evokes a daily life punctuated by a space in perpetual mutation. The series of seaside landscapes began in 2011 and is still ongoing. The artist lives by the sea and does not tire of this landscape every day different.
