Esther Luthi

Artist Statement

First I worked out my paintings in my own as a young girl autodidact in listening to music and creating coloured compositions of all kind with refined feelings. People around wondered about what I was doing in painting fantastic dreams. Because I loved art and music, I did some studies in history of art and music at different universities in Switzerland and Paris.  Indeed, living more than twenty years near Montmartre in Paris, I was inspired by the artistic area of the famous place. So I started to practice art and music and participated in several art workshops or Academies in Paris. A very important and interesting experience in artistic relationships, as well as refined technics of sketches, design and different kind of paintings and gravings,  were my studies of the nudes. It was a great discovery of the body shape into light and shadow effects. Never I felt such a peaceful, delicate, wonderful and impressive mood of working out artistic creations even elaborated in colours.
