Ariane de Rosmorduc has an extreme sensitivity for color as well as for texture. She ardently works the bottom of her paintings. She scratches and scrapes each of the layers so that the overlays act between them, thus encouraging the material to release its light. The mastered and optimized background is the ideal environment to receive all aspects of life. She's  since a long time interested  in associations with the marine world or microbiology. These archaic forms of humanity, vibrant and bright, move to the rhythm of their pseudopods. 

After celebrating the mysteries and the phantasmgoria of the underwater world,  nowedays she comes back closer to the earth with the tumbleweeds. Tumbleweeds are typical plants from the desert of the American west. They're bushy light balls of vegetation which, once dried, detach from their roots and roll with the wind. Western films and visual media have led to a symbolic meaning of this mysterious plant which moves and turns on itself in all lightness, in desolate emptied places. Ariane does not lose the thread, when it comes to interpreting this phenomenon in a contemporary metaphor on the fate of part of humanity. This plant migration is sublimed by the artist in a very rich chromatic nuances and by a breath-taking work of the material. These matter/colour vibrations play in the space to the point of infusing it the movement thus causing the forward flight of what we call the "twirling"
