Sylvie Hamou

Balance and contrast best describe the bold, contemporary artworks of Sylvie Hamou. Just as linguists play with words, her graphic constructions present a dynamic dialogue between colors, lines and spheres, at times enhanced by textures derived from plaster, sand and natural fibers. Simple aesthetics and equilibrium are the backbone of her creativity, while dot work inspired by Antipodean artistic techniques contributes softness to her confidently abstract application of acrylic on to canvas. By confronting curvaceous elements with strict structures she unexpectedly creates a mood of vibrancy, matched with intrinsic peace.


The crossing of artistic styles

Mixed media and acrylic paint on canvas. Sensitive to the world around us, my artwork is inspired by urban architecture and nature. I strive to create paintings that have stand alone personality - bold and dynamic but peaceful and meditative.
