Sylviane Giacoletto www.sylvianegiacoletto.com
Artist Sylviane Giacoletto is adding a new body of work in the beautiful Art Works Gallery. Born and raised in Albertville, France, Sylviane was 10 years old the first time her father took her to Le Louvre Museum in Paris. “I will always cherish the memory of traveling from a little town in the Alps to the City Of Arts. I was lost i n feelings of admiration, and I still vividly remember the colors and the smell of oil painting”.
Many years later, after being a wife, mother and lawyer clerk, Sylviane took her first painting class which gave birth to the artist in her. She became an art instructor in 2000 and managed her own studio in France. She taught Tole painting and faux finishes techniques for nearly 10 years. Sylviane moved to California in 2006, and while still working with acrylics she studied ceramic sculpture, watercolor, and pastels. In 2010, the richness of luminous oil colors gave her the look she was seeking for in her landscapes. Over the years she had the chance to take some workshops with Joyce Ortner, Sushitra Bhosle Kapoor , Jeff Legg, Susan Sarback and Ned Mueller and the oil painter in her was born.
When the opportunity arose to fill a 3D artist space at the Gallery, Sylviane was delighted to bring in a selection of the vintage pieces she created years ago in her beloved France. “When I hold my brush, the world around me vanishes, time stops and my heart opens. Being able to bring illusion to the eyes from a white canvas is magical. If I can move or touch only one viewer, then my goal is achieved.”
