Nude Woman Reclining with Blue Pillow
This painting depicts a nude woman reclining on a bed with a purple blanket and light blue pillow. The figure faces the viewer head-on, with a blue headboard and green curtain behind her. The artist draws his narrative scenes and characters from both his imagination and from real-world observation—including television and the internet. Tessier created this work in his signature style by applying casein paint directly to a primed metal sheet. The result is a low-luster sheen that highlights every brushstroke.
Yves Tessier creates narrative images through his use of casein paint applied to aluminum and wood. For every scene, he draws from both his imagination and real-world observation, including what he sees on television and the internet. Tessier’s compositions are sometimes sensual and humorously erotic, while others are meditative and serene.
