Evelyne Huet is a French artist who lives and works in Paris. She is a mathematician by training, a discipline that she chose for its infinitely dreamlike dimension and that she taught for many years at university (Université Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne, and then Université Paris 7 – Denis Diderot).
She also studied fine art at the famous atelier La Grande Chaumière in Montparnasse, Paris. The painter ARTOZOUL was her teacher there. Recently, Huet was made a Sociétaire of the Salon d’Automne. As a member of the OpenArtCode group of international artists based in Florence, Italy, her work is regularly shown in solo and group exhibitions around the world, including in Japan, Spain, China, Italy, Monaco, Switzerland, Canada, and the United States.
Her digital paintings explore the complexity of human emotions, imagining both their genesis and their evolution. Painting on a screen using her fingertips, Huet simplifies the lines and shapes of bodies, often just the face, to the extreme, searching to discover feelings such as happiness, fear, and pain, as well as more universal expressions of religions, myths, and history. Through layers of color, she builds complex images that reflect the multitude of experiences which make up the universal human condition, with its joys but also its torments and violence.
