Chantal Lallemand

Painter

Born in 1960 in Gevrey-Chambertin (Burgundy), I’ve lived since the age of fourteen in Vernon, a charming little city in Normandy a few kilometers from Giverny.

I had the good fortune to grow up in the company of an artist mother who bequeathed to me a measure of her creativity. I worked as a nurse for around twenty years before being appointed to a senior executive position in the medico- social sector. My professional activity was brutally halted in 2016 after a burnout that left me prostrate for a long moment.

I am lucky to be treated in the healing process by doctors who are very open to treatment techniques centered on behavioral therapies in which the development of personal talents is one of the pillars. These techniques lead the patient to experiment with new behaviors in order to gradually overcome any physical suffering.

Encouraged by my medical team, I first became involved with theater. In time, however, I felt the need to use painting as a means of expression. Painting is the only activity in which my thoughts are not parasitic. When I paint, my mind empties completely, and I am totally focused on my creation: the choice of the colors, the movement of my hand, the pleasure of having my hand in the paint and spreading it like a caress on the canvas. I added seed beads to my paintings. Sewing these tiny glass beads on my paintings helps me achieve a meditative state and add depth to my work. Painting also helps me to be more attentive to the details of my environment, because it makes me more sensitive to colors, light, shadows, movements, and forms. . .

This is how the “Echoes” collection was born.

My Painting

Using my hand as a brush, I develop an intimate relationship with the canvas through a technique similar to that used in massaging. The paint becomes a kind of ointment that I apply by carefully working it into the texture of my canvas. . .

At the contact of the paint I slip into a state of meditation. The movements of my hand are guided by the rhythm of the music that always accompanies the creative process for me. Painting allows me to reinforce my positive emotions and dispel my negative emotions by transforming them on the canvas into something that I find beautiful. . .

Since my aesthetic vision combines the beautiful with the bright, I feel the need to enhance the majority of my paintings with glass seed beads and golden powders. The artistic choice of the bead in its form, size, and color is as important as the choice of the acrylic paint I use.

The color with which I begin is always inspired by the emotion I feel at that moment and may change as my work progresses; it tends to brighten as my feelings grow more serene.

Contemplating my paintings while listening to music is a veritable sensory journey in which the shimmering of the colors and their brilliance carry us off into a magical universe in which each person can give free rein to his or her imagination: the infinite interlacing may lead us into Daedalus’s labyrinth, or we may see a galaxy of waves, horizontal movements on the shore of a somewhat fretful sea—or we might also come upon an imaginary bestiary, and—who knows?— perhaps even the Minotaur. . .

Have a nice trip. . .

Another look at my work….

Christophe Kohn

Chantal discovered a passion for painting a little over a year ago. With each new painting, my pleasure of the eyes is delighted. Fluidity, colour and originality emerge from his creations. The most extraordinary thing is that she paints them with her fingers as her only creative instrument. I am fortunate to have three of her creations at home that she has offered me for my pleasure.

It is sure, you will be captivated by his creations, I am sure, very good discovery…..

I have been following Chantal LALLEMAND’s work for several months. The evolution of his paintings never ceases to surprise me. Only with his hands guided by music and his overflowing inspiration, a real strength and sensitivity emerge. Increasingly refined gradients raised and expressed behind (sometimes) the escape of multitudes of small pearls.

Everything is screamed with meticulous attention to detail. There is magic and passion in the spirit of these paintings. Moreover, this unstoppable and talented Artist puts her talent to the benefit of an association.

RESPECT!!!!!

Many more paintings to discover in the coming months.

Our choice was made on a triptych in red and black tones, all worked with a meticulous work of pearls. the rendering on our wall, in our contemporary house is of the most beautiful effect.

We plunged back into temptation for a second canvas; always in red tones: Storm . magnificent on our white wall.

By its great flights of fancy, Chantal LALLEMAND’s painting is not unlike those of ARPAD SZENES. However, listening to her talk about her painting, we can see that Chantal does not meet any usual criteria, at any traditional school, she never defines herself in relation to one of the fathers of modern painting. She simply poses as an artist inspired by music, leaving her hands and fingers guided by her only intuition gushed out of a long laborious and meditative process. His spontaneity gives his works an unusual dazzling force that immediately touches our sensitivity to the beauty that comes from the depths of being.

“A nice walk through your site, which made me travel through your life. Like the 1960 Gevrey Chambertin Grand Cru, the 2019 will be excellent…”

“I am very impressed by what you wrote and by the paintings. The lyrics are top-notch, strong, honest and sincere, the movement, the harmonies of colours have made me feel like I’m facing a very deep infinity”.

“I was looking forward to the opening of the site. I was following Chantal’s work on Instagram, but now I’m totally amazed. What strength! We feel that some paintings were born in pain and it touches me even more when I read these beautiful texts”.

“I love blacks, blues, greens and especially reds, look forward to seeing them in person. Thank you for allowing us with this beautiful site to enter your artistic universe where you indulge yourself with a lot of modesty”.

I fell under the spell of your paintings which are emotionally charged. I love black paintings that let my imagination take me to the seaside on a dark and scary night… Red, green and blue paintings are also very strong. What message do you want to send us?

Congratulations

Eduardo

Through her colourful and powerful paintings, Chantal takes us into her inner world, imbued with strength, finesse, spontaneity and freedom. By working on colour and movement, she was able to translate the psychedelic inspiration of the Pink Floyd into her canvases, while rediscovering in herself the serenity and joie de vivre that she had lost in recent months. I am fortunate to have seen her work evolve and to be a witness to the pleasure she took in rebuilding herself around this passion.

The site is only a small glimpse of his creations. It is by visiting his exhibitions that we will have the joy of navigating between his harmonious and powerful paintings, simply beautiful….

The homepage of your site and the navigability within the site is perfect.

The paintings are well highlighted, of course nothing beats reality.

The themes on meditation, burn-out reflect who you are and give a very personal dimension to your site.

The visitors of the site will get to know you by browsing it and I find it very good because it makes you feel part of the artist’s life.

Colours, pearls and music allow Chantal to connect to other dimensions and vibrations of space and time, and to print on her canvases in a kind of automatic writing of sensations and emotions. In her travels that she invites us to share, these pearls are like so many combinations of spheres in a dreamlike dive or a vertiginous flight, in an exploration of the infinitely small or large, we do not know, everything at the top being like what is at the bottom.
