CAROLINE D E G R O I S E L L E
530 West 25th Street, New York, NY
Caroline Degroiselle (b. 1963) is a French artist living and working in Nouméa, New Caledonia. She was also the recipient of the 2019 Michelangelo International Prize. Degroiselle writes that her work aims to “praise the positive and beautiful things in life.” It follows that the artist uses vibrant colors and dynamic, wave-like gestures to create her expansive works. As a self-taught artist, Degroiselle remarks that it is important to be true to one’s sense of self and vision. Therefore, her canvas is a reflection of her story: she paints according to her life’s victories, challenges, and discoveries. Accordingly, the artist is influenced by her natural surroundings in Nouméa, specifically the interaction between light and lagoon. Much like the Impressionists, natural themes and the treatment of light are paramount to Degroiselle’s style. In the future, she hopes to develop these interests further through abstract paintings and larger-scale works. Despite her focus on New Caledonia, Degroiselle notes that it is important to her to exhibit her work internationally, and therefore to spread the message of joy and gratitude around the world.

I was born in Paris, but I lived in New Caledonia most of my life after my parents decided to settle there in 1970. I inherited, from them, instincts towards recognizing beauty, courage, and generosity. New Caledonia, my magic and mystic island with its marvelous lagoon, intense light and wilderness inspired me and brought me closer to creation, art, and freedom. I work with watercolor, oil and acrylic paints while incorporating other spontaneous materials and techniques. I love to paint in a variety of textures, ranging from washes to crusty impasto in an enthusiastic wave. The colors create the subject with vibrancy, vitality, love, and joy.
