Elise Barat is a French artist who graduated from the Faculty of Fine Arts in Strasbourg. She has a Master’s degree in Visual Arts and works for museum structures.


Elise Barat‘s emblematic theme is water, which she approaches in all its shimmering shimmer as a surface reflecting a distorted reality. According to the young artist, water is for her a mirror of the world, blurring her bearings. It makes us slide towards the intangible, the ambiguous and the dream. In her liquid canvases, spatial landmarks become blurred and levels of reality are superimposed.

By focusing on the surface of the water, I try to mix reality with its image, in short to weave new links between this supposed reality and its immateriality.
