Artist Background:

Born in Algeria in 1962, Hélène Lhote lived in Morocco, and then in Iran. When she returned to France as an adolescent, she discovered other landscapes, other illuminations, and another culture. Her work, which is influenced by ornamental art (mirrored fabric, calligraphic curves, arabesques) explores the confrontation of contraries and the temptation to reconcile them.

Ms. Lhote was awarded the Diplôme National Supérieur des Beaux-Arts, Paris, and has exhibited in Paris, Rouen and Toulouse.
