Fabienne was born on Friday the 8th of February of 1974 in Aarau (Switzerland). The Swiss city was experimenting an unusual warm time of winter… Maybe it was simply because of Fabienne’s warm and passionate nature, heritage of her Italian family that soon came back to its home Country!
She got her University Degree in Conservation of Cultural Assets at Università della Tuscia in Viterbo in 2001.
Now she lives and works in Teramo (Abruzzo – Italy).
Since she was young, Fabienne had a strong interest in visual arts, especially painting and photography: she used to use creative photography to freeze the images of the nature that she wanted to re-elaborate as paintings.
Her first artistic approach followed the usual schemes of impressionism: landscape paintings using colours and brushes directly on the canvas with no need of drawing with pencils as a first stage of work. It’s no surprise she had as artistic references the great masters of French Impressionism and Vincent Van Gogh, surely her favourite painter ever.
Fabienne’s style evolved with elements from French Art Nouveau and Spanish Modernism. She was deeply impressed and inspired by the harmony of the architecture and the design from these artistic movements: the irregular and sinous shapes of Antoni Gaudi’s buildings, the decorations of Alfons Mucha’s posters, the Liberty’s glass windows, the elegant design of Art Déco…
Matching all these influences, Fabienne developed her own style that we can describe as “synthetic expressionism”: the art work doesn’t need empty decorations anymore, but it runs straight to the deepest essence of the depicted subjects using the black line, a tool that provides a break and a connection among the shapes and the colours at the same time.
The final visual effect reminds something like a mosaic: reality is decomposed and simplified in the paintings to get a dynamic approach to the shapes through a continuous line. The observer is led through this line on the whole surface of the painting following its emotional paths.
In 2010 Fabienne worked on a huge art work: she painted 48 glass windows of the Church Madonna della Salute in her hometown Teramo. She painted these windows with different religious subjects from the Bible and the Gospels to the classical hagiography. She officially presented her windows after more than two years of work on the Easter Sunday of 2013: her work was largely admired by the community of the faithful.
In 2014 Fabienne had another evolution in her style: the black line is now the background and the coloured shapes are dowels of a mosaic that reveals the art work.
