Béatrice Lussol works obsessively with the vulval form, multiplying it to create vibrating landscapes, theaters of enchanting details. She uses collage, writing, painting and drawing, and watercolor, the so-called medium of leisure, to create a body of work that she accepts as committed and feminist. She uses the dewy softness of watercolor, its wet quality, that of mucous membranes and flesh, explicit, volatile, deep, light and oriented, resulting in fictions or twisted organs, funny and/or disquieting, shelters of nutritive and energetic elements, until its crumbling, in fragments, in relative abstraction.
