A French Fusion Elsa Duault graduated with her masters in Marketing in Paris, 2014. With her full focus on art especially on painting and writing, she presented her series of works in many different places in Paris, Rouen, Reims, Le Havre.
In February 2017 she moved to Cape Town to work and to study at the Michaelis School of Fine Art where she is specialized in Fluid Art.
Molecular painting is the title used to describe her method of painting. Indeed, her acrylic paintings are articulated around several main axes: the density and ratio of materials, the interdependence of substances, movements present in nature, the free expression of textures and the effervescence of the creative process.
Duault captures the movement of paint over the axes of space and time. The complexities of life and its dynamics are captured by a time specific to each of her works. Her technique recreates re-creates a microscopic or macroscopic environment embracing the geometry of natural and organic compositions. The visual is of energy colliding and dispersing and finally meeting its equilibrium or resting point
Duault embraces the fluidity of art with her molecular Painting technique.
