From 1960 Bénédicte Champetier de Ribes spent time in various studios : «
La Grande Chaumière » « Julien » and « Pennhingen ». In 1961 with other
young, local artists she exhibited her work in Paris and in a variety of
museums holding appropriate exhibitions (women artists etc.).
There is little continuity in her style - if only a continual desire to
experiment with a multitude ideas and to translate them into works of art
via different techniques. The influence of different periods of her life
on her work (among other things for instance, raising a family) is clear.
Her painting is essentially instinctive and emotional and therefore
strongly linked to the environment. Techniques are sometimes used as much
by chance as anything else; sometimes they are adopted following fruitful
exchanges with other artists. At the moment acrylics, with their immensely
adaptable and easy to use nature, are a favourite although pigments work
better on certain canvas supports and in certain sizes.
A wonderful exhibition gallery was created in an
18th-century winery next to the studio. It is open Thursday to Friday or
It is open during the summer months. However, it is preferable to let him
know by SMS or by e-mail.
