After studying literature at the Sorbonne, economics and finance at Sciences-Po Paris, a short stint in marketing and advertising and finally some unfinished writings, Ann Epoudry felt the need to “come to blows”. To build, to manufacture. She felt a great desire for freedom. So, in order to continue to tell, to reflect, to illustrate, to militate, to share, to react, to explore, to astonish, in short… to reconcile everything, she had to innovate: to draw, to sew, to paint in agreement but without the pre-assembled frames, the pre-prepared canvases, the pre-chewed ideas! Starting from nothing, from the minimum – a piece of fabric, a piece of wood – in order to have as few constraints as possible and to find solutions to questions that nobody asks. Imagine the story… then create the work… then progress. From this research were born “the film screenings! “An original series called “sixteen images/seconds” where each canvas tells a story, that of daily life, that of observing the world around us. A brief glance deposited on cotton canvas with acrylic and collages. Painting or sculpture on canvas? With Ann Epoudry’s ingenuity, the art lover has the choice to arrange the work like a totem pole or to hang it on the wall like a canvas.
