BIOGRAPHY & ARTISTIC STEP
Passionate about drawing since her childhood, Mirabelle starts painting using watercolor, in 2003. With this medium, where born many works, the "moving bodies" mostly inspired by dance.
''However, I was missing something such as relief and texture, freedom of movement...''
MiraBelle get delivered from the technique itself by breaking with a codified style to reach a more informal pattern where gesture and textures prevail.
The path won't be long for the artist to find her new way and to give another direction in his painting. The fruit of this research: an artistic approach much spontaneous, a letting go which leads to lyrical abstraction.
''My approach is still evolving and it is not the work done that is important to me but the path that leads me, the magic of the creative process."
Her creations, which drew from the poetry of Mucha, Klimt, the realism of Lucian Freud and Egon Schiele, gradually move toward the world of great masters of abstraction such as Pierre Soulages, Zao You-Ki, Wang Yan Cheng, Antonio Tàpies...
''My creation is physically involved... I go through construction, destruction, and construction again. Spray, sluicing, impasto, burning, everything is fine to obtain the perfect "rendering". I try to represent through my body, my energies, the affirmation of a presence in this world.''
The artist also multiplies collaborations with various creators: painters, visual artists, sculptors,... She also performed covers for two books of the autor Marc D'Angelo: Gamètes and Jamais atteinte.
''This crossover between different sensitivities, a kind of endangerment of our working and creation habits, is particularly dear to me. I consider this as a common and selfless desire falling within an experimental perspective where artistic exploration is the main goal.''
In 2012 MiraBelle creates the ART'Ochtones. She still presides this association of visual artists of Monaco.
In 2015 the artist is at the origin of the création of the ART'O Mag, the magazine of her association.
The passion for creation rushes her to experiment other materials (clay, plaster, ...) and lead her towards sculpture in 2011, under the influence of Mateo Mornar (Monaco) and, when the sculptor Jean-Marie Fondacaro opens Mirabelle the doors of his studio in Nice (south of France) in 2016.
''I work without a model, I sink into reflection looking for a certain perfection in an unfinished work... I enjoy taking part to each stage of the creation, from the casting process, to the realization of the subject and its patina.''
Original bronzes of art are produced by Florentine foundry craftsmen and exhibited, as her paintings, in galleries in the Principality of Monaco and abroad.
