About

Claude Bauret-Allard , was born in Thonon-les-Bains, Haute-Savoie, and raised in Savoie in a family of artists. She is married to Jean-François Bauret, a photographer, and lives near Paris, in Place de l'Eglise, in Fontenay . Their two children are also artists. Bauret-Allard has been painting for over forty years. She exhibited in 1963 at the Salon des Réalités Nouvelles, and since then she has held numerous shows both in France and in the United States. Bauret-Allard blends soft pastel to create her atmospheric landscapes. Fine detail is created with pastel pencils, especially when working on her finely wrought studies of mouldy fruit or metal cans. "Pastel is a very delicate medium to use," says Bauret-Allard. "Some painters consider it impossible, much too difficult and time consuming.”Bauret-Allard was featured in a special pastel edition of Pratique des Arts, in 2010. Medium: Pastel. Pastels Henri Roché, the brand favored by Claude Bauret-Allard is widely regarded as remarkable for its quality. "I painted with all types of mediums until I discovered these pastels and became ‘addicted' to them," states the artist. "The color range is enormous and the texture corresponds totally to my needs." Subjects: Landscape, still life. She tends to paint in series. Style: Her vision is personal and not aligned to any established school. The light in her work has been compared to that in Turner and Friedrich. The interpretation varies from almost photoreal to impressionistic to even expressionistic, depending on the subject matter. “When I paint a large landscape, I use a smoother, more classical paper which will not interfere with the image and I use the pastel as a pigment, more than as texture." "The mould series developed after I did a vegetable garden and kept the cucumbers, squashes etc for their beautiful shapes. As they aged and moldered, I saw a new world in this extraordinary 'second life.' I started to look at what happens on some fruits and I discovered magnificent changes on lemons, oranges, pears or quinces. To fully express this process I use a thick paper which gives an interesting texture. Pastel is the perfect medium to translate the moulds; powder to represent powder, and for the details, I use pastel pencils which allow me to keep the sharpness of the drawings. It's the same thing for the 'can series,' the rust is also breaking down to powder and the shape, as it is for the moldering fruit and vegetables, is in continuous transformation."
