“To master the technique is to free oneself; to reinvent the tradition is to participate in its conservation; to exceed its limits is a step towards creation.”
Rose Saneuil’s art is above all a story of passion, conviction and a visceral attachment to the art of transforming matter into imagination.
Very early on, Rose Saneuil chose marquetry and cabinet making, which she learned at the Ecole Boulle. She perfected her knowledge in a cabinet making company, creating and shaping prototypes of cigar, watch and jewelry boxes for major luxury brands.
Rose Saneuil has developed her own technique – multi-material marquetry – which she uses on miniature pieces or large-scale paintings.
Sycamore, plane tree mesh, burr walnut, bone, straw, mother of pearl, leather, amaranth, zinc, shagreen, parchment, brass, gold leaf, eggshell, mica, beetle elytra (…) the materials meet and harmonize through Rose’s creative gesture.
TO PLAY WITH THE MATERIAL
Everything starts from a drawing which is materialized by a meticulous selection of materials whose arrangement is similar to a rebus, where each word finds its meaning only by the coherence of the sentence written by Rose.
A very singular alchemy which is discovered with the wire of the glance like a hilly landscape which it is necessary day after day to tame.
TO PLAY WITH COLOR
Rose Saneuil’s art is luminous and the colors shine in her creations; treated in successive touches of materials, the shadow and the light accompany the narration. Revealed by the drawing, figurative or abstract, the palette is infinite and the discovery of materials a permanent surprise.
EXPLORE THE MICRO AND THE MACRO
Unique works or ultra-limited series, these exceptional pieces have contributed to the fame of her know-how and her creations, which she also deploys for pure pleasure on rare paintings, giving free rein to her personal imagination, linked to the magic of nature and its light reflections.
