Biographie de Nathalie Armand
Nathalie Armand est la peintre des émotions, qu'elle traduit à travers des portraits aux regards d'une étonnante intensité et de corps sublimés.
En réalité, son amour pour le féminin sacré, l'amène à exprimer toute la palette de sa créativité.
Les tonalités se font parfois douces, parfois vives. Tel un chef de chœur, l'artiste fait chanter les couleurs dans des harmonies et des vibrations subtiles.
Son travail a reçu de nombreux prix, notamment la médaille d'argent à l'académie des Arts des Sciences et des Lettres.
Elle a exposé dans plusieurs galeries nationales et internationales, ainsi que sur les salons d'art contemporains.
Nathalie Armand, grâce à sa peinture, arrive à montrer que c'est la couleur et les formes elles mêmes qui sont à l'essence de toute chose. Son œuvre « féminité » fut présentée dans le magazine L'univers des arts en juillet/août 2014.

It was after many years of research and work, that I have acquired a very personal and original style.
My work is now imprint force and ambivalence as my brush dance between figuration and abstraction.
Native of Gemini, there is therefore the duality of style in my paintings.
A world that is both realistic and dreamlike where work remains master of light.
A balance of perspectives and lines.
Dynamism in the colors and harmonies found their resonance in acrylic and oil.
For me, the creation of an array must first send positive emotions, transporting the imagination of a visual poetry and timeless.
Wlth Nathalie Armand, we enter a poetic world and we will be able to discover an artwork which will illustrate to us our desires of escape.
Native of Bagnols-sur-Cèze, are in fact, today, Pyrénées valleys that accommodate the artist, represented by their lights, being one of her main sources of inspiration.
Nathalie will know how to benefit from this environment.
She has chosen to use both figuration and abstraction, even though her current work remains figurative ....
With a preference for using oil, the artist does not hesitate to use the acrylic resin if the latter reproduces a better echo.
The matter is applied with the paintbrush in a rather light dimension-and initially, the values of the tones will divulge the shades and the lights.
Finishing this with a knife allows the reliefs to be emphasised more than to mark the effects of matter.
The artist knows how to reveal to us hidden charms and splendours of the balanced nature loving colours, harmonious tints, light tones, but enhanced sometimes, with vivid colours or more lofty values, the artist demonstrates this through her clever resonances and the subtlety of her range, having a remarkable talent in colour.
Idealised if necessary, nature takes an important part in her compositions, however the horse species also seems to have a dominant place
With 'le Pinto' or the 'buveur de vent' (drinker of wind), we can easily confirm that these horses are in good shape in both meanings ....
With 'chemin Béarnais' and 'le plateau de Valençole' the landscape is offered to us in a classic technique rather than in a "charming" way and is built with care, notably with an amazing depth of field.
Considerate and very professionat Nathalie progressively represents an artwork which exceeds the regional environment and which collectors would not be able to remain insensitive.
A work which will give the desire to buy and to never resell .....
Jules Saint-Aubin - Art Critique.
Nathalie Armand’s works on canvas in acrylic and oil feature French-inspired landscape and portraiture. Whether expressed in the visage of subject or object, her shapes hold space and drip with emotionality, exposing a trace of the artist’s unique spatiotemporal frame. Rays of translucent pigment straddle figuration and abstraction, speaking to Armand’s intuitive sensitivity. Artistic philosophy is important to this artist, who talks about the idea of ‘painting as a state of equilibrium’ and ‘nourishment’ and the concept of painting as a chief purveyor of pleasure to the viewer. Her calm autonomy and willingness to experiment with subtle color fusion explores psychosocial conditions around homeland, ownership and identity. Choosing paint as an immersive medium and apparatus of transcendent consciousness, Armand’s oeuvre observes humanity’s collective and deeply rooted urge to ‘flee.’ Her painting process thereby is concerned with a personal and metaphysical departure, of which ecstatic heights – particularly joy and infinitesimal emotionality – are meaningful residues.
