After graduating from the National School of Decorative Arts in 1985, Agnès Thurnauer benefited from training in film and video, contributing to her broad view of an essentially pictorial practice, which, according to the artist, must and can feed on other media. Starting in the mid-1990’s, she regularly produced work in her studio, creating paintings on unadorned canvas, free from primer, with minimal inscriptions. Today, she alternates between abstraction, figuration, collages, and inscriptions, continually exploring the medium by weaving a vast semantic web, regularly drawing on installation, video, and photography in the development of a pictorial metalanguage.
