Virginie Hucher is a French artist graduated in plastic arts. After training in various striking workshops (Michel Gouéry, Bruno Lebel, Marc Alberghina), she developed a mostly abstract aesthetic in its own forms. Fine colorist, her work focuses on themes related to nature, the body and the living through several mediums: acrylic, oil, performance, sculpture.

The colored masses are centered on the canvas, duly delimited in strange shapes which escape classical geometry. These elements, often alone in space, obey a vacuum-filling relationship dear to Taoism. The backgrounds are as neutral as the figures are full and no superfluous detail disturbs their unity. In harmonious and shimmering colors, it is nature that inspires. Virginie Hucher does not hesitate to define her artistic approach under the auspices of a commitment in favor of the protection of the environment, fauna, flora and life on Earth. These organic, vegetable, or mineral hybridizations form a means for the artist to limit himself to the essential. “Raw bodies” to use Lucrèce's periphrasis in De rerum natura, they play on the absence of scale to tackle a work of microcosm in the macrocosm. Do we see the last or first organisms on our planet? In her artistic approach, Virginie Hucher likes to recall the notion of mystery that makes the present moment the first creative principle.
