Chantal Parise (1949) lives in Lyon after having experienced the life in Brazil, Tunisia, Iran and Greece. The oil paintings by Chantal Parise are full of colors, movement and texture. One can feel the emotion of the landscapes: beautiful fields of poppies or sea views from the South of France and Corsica mainly. Chantal Parise started her career as a dancer, and kept from that period a real taste for movement. Her color harmonies are very subtle and attractive, whether it is an abstract painting or a more figurative subject.
