About the Artist

Nelly Cougard’s vibrant abstractions in acrylic and oil on canvas or paper are as emotive as they are resonant. A process-oriented artist who names movement as a governing quality of her work, Cougard works across media, incorporating a variety of materials into her works, including paper and structural gels. Interested in removing the “object” proper from the optical projections mediating time and space, her masterful compositions invoke the primal and seductive rhythms of music and nature. Drawn to balance and the “energetic trace” of gestural forms, her paintings depict the continually changing aspects of human existence, that which is at once ephemeral and fragile. Says the artist of her practice and process, “Painting… transports me” and “I allow myself to be guided, leaving a few human traces of my passing.”

French artist Nelly Cougard was born in Lorient and currently lives and works in Brittany near Brest. After studying Psychology and Communications at university level, she went on to teach young children, a position that enhances the imaginative and spontaneous quality of her work.
