Huguette Machado Rico

Huguette Machado Rico was born in 1942 in Algeria. She has been painting and drawing since her childhood Art studies in Paris. In 1962, she studied at the Beaux Arts in Aix en Provence and holds a degree in commercial art and illustration. After several years in advertising design, she devoted herself to painting. She has had many exhibitions in France, abroad, in galleries and museums.Her work falls within the family of primitive contemporaries,recognized in Art history as: "Singular". Her paintings, pastings, sculptures are an explosion of colours and sensitivity related to brittleness and beauty of existence." I do aim at feisty pictures, I want them to make us look at strange and wonderful things" In this thoroughly sunny, vegetal universe made of dreams, every figure has been thought from the promise of happiness which it is making up. Sometimes Hands are full of Hearts, Eyes are often turning into flowers. "To be aware of one's own weakness, to carry on however wishing to sing the blessing of life"could be a definition for Machado's work.
