Barbara Christol

Barbara Christol


From an early age, Barbara Christol grew up in the world of art and had a passion for drawing.Barbara studied at the Beaux-Arts de Nîmes and later attended several painters' workshops to perfect her techniques.

The Painter understands that she must deepen her knowledge in Art History and joins the prestigious University La Sorbonne in Paris up to the Doctorate in order to elaborate her own plastic and aesthetic research.

Barbara Christol's pictorial work has become unique over the years as she has developed a plastic and aesthetic practice revolving around balls of wool.The artist creates series of ephemeral weavings that she exhibits in institutional places, in nature, or private spaces.

The thread is always there, in her paintings, either physically or with the omnipresent use of the line. Figuration and abstraction are interwoven around favorite themes: space and play.

Geometric figures infused with poetry move into landscapes, mountains, architectures, all underpinned by the structural lines that act as threads in the compositions.

Barbara Christol's works are regularly exhibited and are part of private collections in France, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The Siena Color
"The Siena Color" is a series based on the Natural Sienna hue. The geometric compositions create more or less abstract landscapes sometimes almost science-fictional in their two vanishing points, which are a projection of what could be called "interior landscapes". Natural Sienna brings an enveloping warmth to the geometric figures of these spaces.
