Artist Reception: First Friday - November 3, 5-9PM
Agathe Bouton is a French artist, originally from Paris. She moved to Philadelphia 3 years ago, and is now based in Wynnewood PA. She works mainly in various forms of printmaking, but also in painting and collage.
She studied in one of the finest and most famous applied art schools of Paris, ESAA Duperre, and has shown her art in many exhibitions in France and around Europe, as well as Australia, Japan, India, Burma, West Africa, Turkey and the USA. She has won a number of awards for her work
Some of Agathe’s work is displayed at the Gallery Martine Namy-Caulier in Paris, and she also has work in the permanent collection of the National Library of Paris.
Since leaving Paris 13 years ago Agathe has lived and exhibited her work in London, Rangoon (Burma), Abidjan (Ivory Coast), Dakar (Senegal), and Istanbul (Turkey), before now settling in the US. Her work is inspired and fed by all her experiences and the cultures she has interacted with during her travels.
Her work breaks the boundaries of the traditional medium of engraving and etching. Her modern approach to this ancient technique means her work tends to be more colorful and pictorial, and less graphic than traditional engraving.
Agathe is a Professional Artist Member at the Main Line Art Center in Haverford, PA, InLiquid Creative Member, Artist Member at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists and Full Member of the 3rd Street Gallery in Philadelphia.
