Adeline is a French visual artist. After a degree in illustration at the Ecole Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg, she went on to obtain a Masters Degree in Textile Design at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts de Mulhouse, and subsequently trained as an intervening visual artist.
A very sociable person, she is heavily involved both in the creation and the organization of participative workshops. This led her to travel throughout Eastern France during four years with the Lithobus, a mobile screenprinting studio, inviting a wide range of people to take part in various edition projects which she initiated or invented. More recently, she travelled across Northern France in a trailer, teaching 31 classes on the art of creating books.
As a designer, Adeline slowly moved away from classical illustration and developed a more experimental approach, focusing on the book as a piece of art. Following her passion for traditional techniques, she went on to join various residency programmes around Africa, Israel, India and Europe. It was during a residency period at the DruckWerkstadt in Berlin that she chose to return to screenprinting, and perfect her latest artworks.
Adeline views herself involved in constant process of experimentation, looking to push the technique to its limits. She considers her work to be all about depth, shade and light, standing somewhere between fading-in and fading-out. One can immediately sense her desire to develop a world where images and stories are combined according to a set of rules which she determines herself, thus staging her own creation process.
The result is an artwork situated between painting, writing and photography. Lively, constantly appearing where you would least expect her with her lucid, straightforward vision and a silk-soft imagination, Adeline weaves her art with strength and sensitivity, marching forward on her artistic path.
