Faustine Badrichani

Creation is my instinctive response to milestones in life. Each technique incorporated is a spontaneous echo to real life events. My work should be understood as a constant discussion about change: of body, mind and soul.
As a child, I grew up acclimating to various situations, thus becoming very sensitive to change, mostly enduring it and suffering through it. Drawing became
a lighthouse that saw me through these geographical and emotional changes.
This “change” became the essential core, the genuine lifeblood of my artistic creation.
Moving to New York a few years back was once of those life-changing event, and I started making colorful and psychedelic urban landscapes. Creating those paintings anchored me in my new environment and life. I turned rushes of nostalgia into precise collages, and anonymous dancing silhouettes. These urban sceneries were my first complete series – ending only when I felt rooted in this
new life.
I initiated a second series in response to a significant change in my life, pregnancy. Carrying my first child was a traumatic experience, and my work became shelter and a companion to this uncontrollable physical metamorphosis. My body had once been exclusively a source of visual contentment. Now pregnant, my body had a specific function to fulfill. This triggered a quest: that of the absolute beauty, as opposed to the very concept of a functional body.
This exploration has grown into an obsession for the young female body. Using precise, dynamic brushstrokes, I have created an entourage of expressive women who exhibit nudity and exude intimacy. Fanatically painting young, childless women is the outward display of an inner change that has changed my own relationship with my physical body. Painting those totemic feminine silhouettes is my therapy.
