Pascale Taurua, 1960 | Mixed media/Fashion painter




French artist Pascale-Miria Taurua is painting since her young age. She was born in New Caledonia and went to Art School in Tahiti. After leaving there for a few years she went to Paris and then the South of France where she lives in both places since 2006.







Taurua's paintings are as beautifully and as aggressively painted as they are sensually erotic. Her girls have a certain glamour that reminds her own life since she has been Miss France 1978 at the age of 18. Her palettes are so lush and vibrant that often you might find yourself getting lost in their smooth ungulations against his heavily textured and gessoed canvases.






Pascale Taurua is a woman. That is all.
Gently, life creeps, guided by the light Taurua in the compositions, the positions of the body, poses with symmetries and repetitions staged for the purpose that give coherence to these épannelages.
Forcefully, life is captured in the moment, in a choreographed movement, always bathed by the light of Love.
Pascale Taurua is a beautiful bridge between inner and outer worlds, worlds in which unconditional love bathes the human.
Very generous. Thank you.

Every human being is changing the world through his inner world.   
The artist invites us to follow him, smuggler emotions, generous, he turns the key to perception for a number of his contemporaries.
Pascale Taurua provides key: the subtle password.
She projects her inner life outward to humans outside.
She exist subtle world in the visible world to the eyes of his contemporaries.


Pascale brings her home and turn on all the lights.
She picks us as do the poems that gently outweigh the reader. The canvas comes up at the moment we put over his eyes, without using words vectors meaning that underlie the poet! The investment of the viewer is well below the player.
Then life, with great force, attracts the paintings Pascale. It puts a whole so that the viewer finds him there. | by Pascale Aribaud, Architect
