Adélie

 

guillemets-ouverts - Adelie Metayer robes de marieesI grew up in a village with 600 inhabitants in south Brittany in France. My maternal grandparents were Spanish exiles fleeing the Franco’s dictatorship and my paternal grandparents were Breton peasants belonging to that deep rural culture which has since disappeared. The respective stories of those two couples would mark me for life: on the one hand, poverty and the Spanish civil war contrasting with the powerful artistic culture of my Andalusian family and on the other hand, the hardships of the rural life in Brittany contrasting with an exceptional connection to the nature. This is what today shapes my creativity: Art and Nature.guillemets-fermes-adelie metayer
