Barbara Penhouet isa young French architect who graduated in 2013 from the ENSAB – National Architecture School from Brittany. She is settled in Berlin. She has been driven to architecture thanks to her practice of painting and passion for art.
Barbara’s paintings find their origins in other images. Those images are from various backgrounds, from the Internet, from other painters, from memories… The world seems to have been fully and completely documented and filmed, so she seeks to uncover, why does painting remain? Painting echoes in her because of its physical and impulsive aspect. She re-interprets this flood of images in a soft and palpable matter. She creates images that will flow slowly and tells stories. She says of her work, “Thanks to painting, I am seizing another world.”
