Axelle Fine Arts is proud to present Fabienne Delacroix’s solo exhibition, Douceur de Vivre, this winter. Fabienne Delacroix, daughter of naïf master painter Michel Delacroix, is internationally celebrated for her charming and nostalgic depictions of the French country and seaside. Although her work can be linked stylistically to her father’s, she has certainly distinguished herself as a unique and talented artist in her own right. This highly anticipated all-new collection features a large selection of acrylic on canvas pieces in her characteristic style.
Fabienne Delacroix’s subjects range from quiet, domestic interiors to convivial park scenes and serene rainy days to luminous seascapes and harbors; she offers views of the open-air market in France, New York’s own Central Park in autumn and children playing in the snow. Although the content varies greatly, all her works capture the spirit of the changing seasons in a simpler, quieter France of the past. Her pieces are at once playful, joyous and lyrical and her works are saturated with an undeniable love and admiration for the seasons she depicts and the people and families living in her little worlds.
Born in 1972 to a family of artists, Fabienne was first exposed to art by her father, Michel Delacroix. At just ten years old, she exhibited her paintings for the first time at a gallery in Carmel, California; the show completely sold out. Since 1996 she has devoted herself entirely to painting. Since that time, she has had numerous successful exhibitions across the US and abroad. She currently lives and works in Madagascar but will attend the opening reception in New York City on December 7.
