BIOGRAPHY

Caroline avec Palmas et Lotus memories.jpg

Painter, originally from Les Rousses in Haut-Jura, Caroline David now lives and works in Lille after a ten-year career abroad, in Hungary and then in China.

 

First a professional in marketing, she began painting in 2006 in Budapest (her city of heart) where she remained for 7 years. It was in Hungary that she became a full-time artist and exhibited her work for the first time, in a gallery and then at the French Institute of Budapest with the group of artists Quatu'Art.

From her beginnings in painting, the digital era has been an obvious source of inspiration for the artist who also takes up questions of globalization and cultural clashes.

 

In 2012, in China, the adaptation to the megalopolis of Shanghai, ultra artificial and extremely populated is difficult for this girl from the Jura mountains.

She is involved as a curator on an exhibition of contemporary Chinese artists, carried by an international communication agency. But she must leave the country to flee the pollution that is endangering the life of her son.

This period marks a decisive turning point that nourishes her artistic work and directs her even more to contemporary societal concerns such as urbanization, the restriction of wildlife areas, the question of a society driven by data, the transhumanism.

In France since 2014, she presents her artwork in Lille, Paris and in her native Jura where she meets Anne-Lucie Barbot. This is the start of a happy collaboration with the contemporary art gallery CHROMIA, which represents her work in France and Switzerland.

 

In 2021, Caroline David's pictorial work invites humans to reconnect with their natural environment (earth, air, oceans, the elements, plants, other animals) and to free themselves from artificial and virtual destroyer worlds of which they are the authors.

Towards rewilding!
