Annie Tremsal
"Of Passage & Oblivion", Landscape Abstract Expressionist Oil Painting




Named "Of Passage & Oblivion", this abstract impressionist landscape by Annie Tremsal was created with oiled ocher on canvas. Fruit offering, past things, and places that seem to have been forgotten occasionally come to mind… This artwork is not framed. Annie Tremsal is an expressionist painter. Her art is marked by great creative freedom, as proved not only by the visual images of her works but also by the variety of media she uses (steel, Chinese paper, canvas, fabric, wood…). Faithful heir of the ancestral techniques of the great masters, Annie Tremsal creates her own mediums from oil, binders, pigments, oxide powders, fine marble powder as well as a large chromatic variety of fine ocher powders extracted from minerals naturally coming from the earth. Philosophy also occupies a very important place in the life of Annie Tremsal, and nourishes her paintings. Close to several French philosophers, notably François Julien, Annie Tremsal is also very deeply influenced by Taoist philosophy, which advocates nature, calm, and letting go. Perfectly consistent with her philosophical claims to focus on the essence and on the origins of humanity, well beyond appearances, Annie Tremsal practices a style of painting without pretension, with an ultimate search for simplicity and harmony, sobriety and contemporary. Guided by her artistic intuitions, Annie Tremsal expresses herself in her works with a musicality punctuated by lines and by the empty-and-full complementarity, in particular through the adoption of the white color complemented by other colors of her choice. This musicality in her works generally echoes the few essential elements that constitute the space where we the humans exist and live: mineral, wood, water, fire, rock, wind, etc. In her works, this space can also be original places that the artist invents herself: virgin, little shaped by man, which should be able to accommodate everything. Therefore, through her works, the artist reminds us of the meaning of life, which is the pure joy, the innate joy of existence, brought only by essential elements, as opposed to the material surplus to which "modern societies" make us aspire.
