« For Béatrice Roche Gardies, to paint is to restore not only what she sees but what she feels about a pattern or a model before. She knows how to understand the ephemeral, choose the moment, choose the moment, capture what words cannot connot translate and transcribe them on the canvas thanks to her sense of color, knowing how to enhance the atmosphere of a scene and the environment surrounding a caracter. Between tradition and modernity this artist as managed to create a pictoral language that can only appeal to demanding art lovers.

An artist to follow closely. »
