A cat in a tree, couples entwined in a village square, a woman helping her husband with his tie. This is the magic of the small everyday moments that Perrine Vilmot wants to capture with kindness and graciousness. Her oil paintings are an invitation to travel, full of very colorful yet soothing journeys. Without coquetry, without any sentimentality, she places a maternal perspective on the world around her. This results in a pure and naive vision that touches us with its sincerity. All is quiet in this contained world, full of freshness and poetry. Every being, every couple, every character has its place, and sense of weightlessness. The individual is not lost in the crowd, but appears with all his strangeness, his exceptional and unique facets.
Perrine’s work seems very structured, which is probably the result of her scientific, even mathematical side, and her long history as a graphic designer. After obtaining a degree in physics and scientific materials, she trained in industrial and graphic design. A graduate of the School of Design of the Loire Region in Nantes, she worked for ten years in an office in Paris and the Paris region, including designing graphic illustrations for websites and paper media. She took courses in painting and drawing before installing her workshop in 2004 in Bordeaux and fully devoting herself to this activity as an “auto-entrepreneur.”
