In 2001, Christine Anziani visited an exhibition of the photographer André Villers, creator of photocollages, and there she discovers a way to tell stories in a different way by juxtaposing images coming from different universes.
Then, she explores the large potential and diversity of this technique, Prevert said it was « ideal to one who doesn’t know drawing ».
Contrast between complexity and simplicity,the line and the material,shapes and colors illustrates twists and turns of her imagination.
The artwork springs up thanks to an image seen in a magazine, whose atmosphere introduces to another and another …
Then she plays, combines, juxtaposes, slips, coordinates and makes them consistent and suddenly a strange portrait or a mysterious fancy story appears.
Other artists, from Max Ernst to the Fluxus, Matisse or the chinese Masters, and even fairy tales and legends have influenced her and lead her after years of development to her own language to become a collagist.
Through an emotional and sensorial experience that she wants to share with the audience, she offers a medium for each one to travel in a personal or universal phantasmagorical world.
