Playing with Knives

Sounds dangerous. Well it is. It also is a little bit exciting. Except the knives I am referring to are palette knives and are usually used to mix paint. Francoise Nielly  uses these knives to actually paint with. What she creates is intense, colorful, bold, and intriguing. You can't tear your eyes away from her work, and her work can't tear its eyes away from you. The paintings are violent in nature, but then again, playing with knives never turns out nicely.
