Artist Information for Elizabeth Michellod-Dutheil

elizabeth collects and dissects any object that suits her inspiration, be it vegetal, manufactured or industrial. She likes to explore new ways of using and combining those materials.

In some of her works, the thread is a guideline and the fabric becomes a support. By accumulating various materials, abstract figures are created that combine into a more complex design, not unlike a bas-relief.

Always searching for new colours, she  uses pasting, superimposition of fabrics and dyeing processes. This is probably one of the many singular aspects of her artwork.

She, also makes great use of photographs. She tries to capture the atmosphere and the emotions of a place, to later transcribe them in her drawings or her textile artwork. This way, her work can be seen as witnesses of nature, life and past times.

les 4 elements

les 4 elements130 x 80 cm   Photo by emd My inspiration comes from mother Nature, which provides the materials necessary for my creations, whether in raw form (twigs, bark, mushrooms), or transformed (fibers, fabrics...). I also recycle whatever arouses my curiosity and then incorporate in my work.

au-dela des Monts d'Auvergne

au-dela des Monts d'Auvergne100 x 100 cm   Photo by emd The Earth is and offers us its species and the magnificence of its plants. I wanted to pay tribute to my native region, Auvergne, with this quilt. Green is the dominant colour in the land of the Puys and extinct volcanoes generously offer us small blocks of lava. Incorporated into my quilt, they speak to us of their existence for thousands of years and what has been, will remain
