From the 1980s onwards, Monique Frydman abandoned figuration for abstraction, working in series of alternately vivid and hazy colours whose density, vibration and diaphaneity she probed. To the question "What is your definition of painting?" she answers: "Another form of knowledge of reality." As in the Colorfield Painting of the American Rothko, who was especially attentive to the expressive depth of his canvases, it is the sensation translated into the painter's actions that this carnal painting exhales, where "the canvas receives the pigment by impregnation and the pastel by rubbing", as Camille Morineau writes.
