Sand paintings

Claudine Vasseure

Art painter

My creations are made exclusively with natural, untinted sand.

I work with a palette of more than 300 sands that I have collected mainly in the South Pacific, from Australia to Easter Island via Polynesia, Vanuatu, New Caledonia or New Zealand.
The rest of the world is also in the spotlight with white Mexican or Maldivian sands, Breton or Reunionese greens, Indian or Egyptian yellows and Icelandic or Thai blacks. If a large part of my creations are inspired by the primitive arts, I also use my personal photos for more figurative creations.
