Stéphanie Haye started painting as a self-taught artist at the age of 17. Her first painting box: an oil painting set.… And undoubtedly the use of this medium allowed her to access the meaning that, without art, she could no longer give to life at the moment of awakening from the formidable farewell. A direction: emotion, an attempt: colour, a trace: abstraction, in a form of narrative of existence. And then, for years, drawings and paintings have always coexisted in the most absolute discretion until the exhibition.
It is with modesty that the artist encounters the gaze of others because she loves solitude. However, reinventing the world she sees through the brush reveals its miraculously silent, transparent part, and inscribes it in an unsuspected reality where the torment blends into a deep calming, the quest for equilibrium. And it is perhaps for this reason that she nevertheless accepts to show her works in all humility as a craftsman of the soul, a peasant of the heart.
