Titus Le Pese-Nerf
French-born American painter Annette Poitau received her MFA with honors from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. She also studied at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City. Aer showing her work extensively in France, she moved to the United States, where she currently works full time at her studio in Oberlin, Ohio. Her paintings are displayed in numerous private and public collections in the U.S., throughout Europe, and in Japan.
Annette’s richly colorful abstract paintings are grounded in natural forms and dynamics. The artist states: “Every painting is a sort of intimate dance with matter and primordial gestures, a dialogue between my will and the chemical reaction of the colors, their disappearance and reemergence in new incarnations. The painting reveals itself with time. It makes its own sense, discovers its soul.”
