France-based & international artist, Benedicte Gele turns the lines into an expressive and alive forms. The line vibrates under her hands, the horse comes alive almost by itself as her act of painting is an intuitive and expression of the feelings at the moment. No plan, no precise objective her process is the present moment mixed to a letting go.
DIVE INTO AN ARTWORK
All started with an art challenge which was to interpret the carousel horse. The painting has been exhibited with some 50 others in the Haras of St Lô in Normandy, France.
It was really a challenge for me, not to say a struggle. What can I do with that? First it was a very good occasion to play with colors. Then I wanted something very energetic, as usual you would say. With that in mind, I started to paint and let go with the rest…
This carousel is the life. Colored, not too defined, in motion, free but framed. The life like cycles which go round and round endlessly or almost until the end of the tour or the next one.
I made an allegory of life!

“I love my painting! It is absolutely stunning. I love the way it shows the emotion in the eye, the bone structure in the head and is a bit abstract. It gives me great pleasure to look at Benedicte’s work. I want another, for sure. – oh yes, the artist is wonderful to work with & the shipping was fast and secure.”
“This small painting is just stunning!! Benedict’s has such a marvelous way of capturing the essence of the horse. I have purchased other small original works from this artists and I love them all!!”
“The way the silver paint catches the light as you view it is awesome. It just adds depth and movement to the images which Is already much alive. It is a real honor to have one of your original painting. I have never seen horses done so well. You have really captured their essence. They are very much alive.”
