LIVES AND WORKS
In 2002, she exhibited in London in Acava Studio. She has had multiple shows in French private collectors houses and in London Sungard's offices in 2004. Her work was bought in 2001 by the Andersen contemporary collection. For a long time she kept her work private and her inspirations came from her personal experiences, art history and the colours of the Mediterranean Sea. In 2020, she came back to London to continue her practice and where she is planning several exhibitions in London and in France.
Schweitzer is influenced by the big masters from Vermeer to Turner and the Impressionist of the 20s century painting. In Provence, she especially felt attraction to the abstract expressionism from Rothko to Jackson Pollock paintings, and to Gerhard Richter’s new vision of painting from photography. She also developed her own work around childhood Memory - her BA thesis subject matter. Her work is a constant inner search of meditation and spirituality. Zao wou-Ki is one of her pictorial references. Her paintings is about energy, vibration and harmony.
Other inspirations for the artist comes from nature, the sea and music. She paints listening to music and loves classical music especially Rimsky- Korsakoff but is also a great fan of Pink Floyds, Genesis, Jean Michel Jarre and Vangelis, all original music pieces without boundaries to style.
In her process she always oscillates between control and spontaneous pouring painting, between abstraction and figurative references to nature.
Her technique mixes acrylic, oil paint in a very eclectic approach.
