The Art of Anne Bachelier, 2017
Anne Bachelier was born in 1949 in Louvigne du Desert, France. She attended the Ecole des Beaux Arts, La Seyne-Sur-Mer between 1966 and 1970. Bachelier’s art can be seen in museums and private collections throughout Europe and North America. She is widely accepted as a master of line, detail and profundity. Metamorphosis, transition, and evolution provide the common threads of the art of Anne Bachelier. She captivates her audience with compelling, highly imaginative images that are distinct, unique, inventive, and immediately recognizable. Her metaphysical, dream-like fantasies evoke feelings of power, peace, and protection. Bachelier’s unique “other” world, untouched by time or place, reminds the viewer of the eternal dance of transformation and regeneration.
