Bocaert’s work encapsulates feminine sensuality exploring, the intimate link between our physical body and the spiritual nature of the soul.
Virginie Bocaert’s emotionally inspired paintings are like breathlessly diving into the figures that emerge from the depths of her backgrounds. In her latest series, each work exudes a raw passion. Bocaert’s style has evolved by her use of both photography and paint on her canvases with the figures are becoming much more developed, and taking on a strong personality of their own.
