Sylvie Mermoud plays with colours and textures. She is working canvas as a skin with a thick pigment paste stacked in multiple layers. She cuts and scratches the paint layers to subtly suggest the heart of the deeper layers. In her acrylic work, with successive layers of colours, she creates, in a pictorial research frames, stains and streaks. It is an exploration around the cells, the nature of life, a set of lights and movements, an effervescence of brilliant colors.
