For Mathilde Rosier, wild nature is a form of violence, it does not have the ideal gentleness that we might associate with it. Nor is nature the soul's mirror, as the Romantics used to think. It is still unknown and mysterious. For this artist, a revolution is in the offing – “we're going to discover that man is not the end purpose of nature”. Using painting, video and music, she composes in writing a sensitive oeuvre which expresses a relation to the inside-out world. The artist bases her work on intuition rather than knowledge, and gives up the idea of stepping back from things, in favour of letting herself be guided by a hectic imagination. Her paintings are all so many irrational and poetic experiences involving the resignation of consciousness. What can be read in her work is an emotive relation to nature; and nature becomes an environment that is at once fascinating and dangerous.
