Née en 1949 à Paris, elle expose son travail depuis 1984 en France et à l’étranger. Elle vit et travaille dans l’Oise. Son travail est particulièrement épuré et stylisé et les scènes de vie sont souvent suggérées à l’essentiel. Peintre et sculpteur, elle s’engage dans les deux expressions avec une vraie fascination pour la matière.

Habitée par une quête de paix et de sérénité, elle cherche chaque jour à mettre en lumière une humanité profonde. Tout est dans l’intention par la symbolique ou le message. Elle souhaite valoriser la force du partage, l’entraide et l’union dans un combat de vie au quotidien. Ses toiles sont lentement travaillées en matières successivement superposées et poncées.

Par transparence, les teintes réapparaissent et proposent des impressions de profondeurs pour accueillir, en premier plan, les sujets posés au couteau dans un élan maitrisé. Ses sculptures créées en terre, parfois éditées en bronze, font toujours références à des scènes de vie. B.G.

Born in 1949 in Paris, she exhibits her work in France and abroad since 1984. Currently, she lives and works in the Oise county. Her paintings are very uncluttered and stylized, and scenes of life are often suggested to the main thing. Painter and sculptor, she is devoted in both roles with a true fascination for the materials.

Seeking peace and serenity, she wishes to highlight a profound humanity every day. It all depends on the intention. She wants to enhance the sense of sharing, the mutual assistance and the union within an everyday life fighting. Her canvas are slowly shaped with successive layers, carefully superimposed and sanded.

The tints reappear by transparency and give illusions of depth in order to welcome some subjects in the foreground, that are drawn with the help of a knife, and a well-controlled gesture. Her sculptures, always referring to some scenes of life, are made of terra cotta and some of them are also made of bronze.

Committed to living artists for more than 25 years, Bénédicte Giniaux started in the Oise and Paris regions before moving to Bergerac, Dordogne, where she opened her own art gallery in 2011.
In the heart of the historic centre of this charming city, the gallery presents the work of twenty permanent artists. The figurative art, which is here always customised and stylised, remains a priority, through various themes (the world of humans and animals, journeys, nudes, everyday life scenes and still-life paintings). Numerous abstract artworks are also on display.
In this art gallery, poetry, tenderness, humour and life stories are predominant. The artworks are signed by professional artists deeply committed to their work. Some of them even have a solid reputation abroad.
From small to large formats, the artworks are made of bronze, terra cotta, raku, iron, Corten steel, stainless steel, wood, glass fusion, etching, engraving, drawing, collage, watercolour, pastel, acrylic paint, oil paint, photography…

The gallery is run with passion by Bénédicte Giniaux. All her energy is dedicated to various artists, from France and abroad, with whom she chose to work and on long-term partnerships. They work hands-in-hands with a mutual confidence.
Throughout the year, various events give the gallery its tempo: solo or collective exhibitions, in situ with the permanent artists of the gallery, as well as outdoor exhibitions in partnership with important places, such as this summer exhibition at the Château des Vigiers.

“Over the past nine years, the Bénédicte Giniaux art gallery has been able to win over and retain an audience of amateurs and collectors from all over the region and passing through the Dordogne. The quality of the selected artworks, as well as the friendliness of the reception, undoubtedly make it one of the most important art galleries in Nouvelle-Aquitaine.” Florence Peyron

“I have always been working with artists from whom the sensibility and the creative techniques passionate me. I appreciate their investment, their commitment, their artistic search as well as the way they look at their own work. Some of them are present since the beginning of my activities, and when new artists fit in the gallery, my selection criterion are mainly linked with their professional background and I look for long-term partnerships.
All the sculptures and all the paintings are one-offs. Regarding the bronze sculptures, casted in limited edition and numbered, each one of them is called “Épreuve originale”. I never put on display artworks made from resin, neither for indoor nor outdoor.
All the artworks are technically mastered, and I always deliver a certificate of authenticity, alongside a text of introduction or a catalogue about the artist.”
