In her series "Couleurs des champs", Vinça Monadé turns to the fragment, forms anchored in her imagination and her environment. She is inspired by nature and the fields that surround her on a daily basis, that she observes throughout the seasons. The form is thought of as a dyptych; it is unity and fragments. For her, colour is reminiscent of medieval illuminations, and it is its fullness and strength that nourish the surface, which in turn, in a set of combinations, nourish it. The artist also explores ceramics, around the same theme, transposing these surfaces into modules. The association here is open and free, the volumes and textures combining infinitely: "I tried to mix the grain of the chamotte with the softness of a smooth earth, to use coloured clays and plasters close to the matt of gouache. A few enamels enrich the surfaces.
Vinça Monadé is an art teacher in ceramics at the « Gué à Tresmes" school, in France. In addition to her teaching, she also works on personal art projects. She began her apprenticeship by studying graphic design and then studied at Amore's studio at the Beaux- Arts university in Paris. She completed her studies with a degree in art history and developed a passion for the art of the middle ages and the italian primitives. Vinça Monadé then became interested in silkscreen printing and worked at Jérôme Arcay's Parisian studio.
