Colette the Artist
"I create a landscape and become part of it."
"I consider my performances to be like drawings for further works."
"To me art is magic, the making of art alchemy , therefore the medium that I use is not as important as the fact that I turn it into art.“
In "the death of madame Recamier“ (1975), an appropriation of David´s famous Madame Recamier, I was also commenting on the death of the image of the "Woman on the Couch " a classical image of women in art for centuries, at a time of heavy feminism. At the same time I was "objectifying myself". I became not only the artist and creator or the image, but the model and the subject.
