Inside the Dreamscapes and Studio of Karine Rougier

Malta-born artist Karine Rougier currently lives and works in Marseille, France. A devoted painter, she has shown at galleries and museums such as Museu Coleção Berardo and MAC Maja Arte Contemporanea. Rougier’s work has a vivid, surrealist touch. Her humanistic figures have animalistic qualities in their surrealist environments.

Whitewall spoke with Rougier about her studio and process.

WHITEWALL: What’s the first thing you do when you get into the studio?

KARINE ROUGIER: I go and have a look at the works that I left the day before, then I prepare coffee.

WW: What materials are you working with right now?

KR: I am working on oil paintings on wood, and also preparing some collage with vintage postcard, and engravings.

WW: What are your studio hours like?

KR: Everyday, like a real office, after I drop my daughter at school then I pick her up; so from 9 am to 5 pm.

WW: Where was the last place you traveled?

KR: Cabo Verde during the carnival.

WW: What artist’s work would you love to have in your home ?

KR: A painting by Miriam Cahn.

WW: What’s an artwork of yours that you’d never sell?

KR: A group of 15 wooden heads that I had sculpted in wood, each head has the size of a hand, there are around a necklace now, like the Indian goddess Kali.

WW: Describe your studio space in one word.

KR: Dream.
