Agathe de Bailliencourt (b.1974 Paris, France) has two parallel artistic approaches - studio-based practice and work in situ. In the studio, the artist will work on canvas, paper or linen, using paint or ink. Outdoors, she applies her work directly onto the landscape, architecture and urban environment. Patterns and motifs, in particular the straight line, recur throughout her work, becoming focal points within the dynamics of space, time and place.
