Elisabeth Eliora Bousquet’s latest collection, “Cosmosis,” is a mesmerizing journey through the abstract realms of the universe, brought to life with fluid acrylic on canvas. This collection, rich in vibrant hues and intricate designs, is more than just a visual feast; it is a heartfelt tribute to the beauty of the cosmos and its Creator.

The name “Cosmosis” combines “Cosmos” and “Osmosis,” suggesting a harmonious blend of elements within the universe. This concept is vividly depicted in Eliora’s paintings, where each canvas represents an imaginary celestial landscape. Through the fluid acrylic pouring technique, she captures the dynamic and mysterious nature of the cosmos, creating works that invite viewers to explore the infinite mysteries of the universe.

In the vast expanse of the cosmos, galaxies swirl in an eternal dance, and it is within this celestial ballet that Eliora finds her inspiration. Her collection is a reflection of the unity and diversity of the universe, showcasing galaxies, constellations, and stars in a symphony of colors. Electric turquoise blues, deep petrol blues, soothing greens, and entrancing violets dominate her canvases, representing the vibrant energy of imaginary stars and nebulae. Accents of yellow cadmium and carmine red add warmth, creating a balance that mirrors the harmony of the cosmos.

Each canvas is a testament to the splendor of the universe, a glimpse into the infinite possibilities of the cosmos as seen through Eliora’s eyes. Her work invites viewers to marvel at the magic of the universe, to see the harmony in its chaos, and to appreciate the intricate beauty of its design.

Eliora’s journey as an artist began at a young age, guided by a profound sense of spirituality.

This spiritual foundation permeates her work, imbuing each piece with a sense of wonder and reverence.

Ann WILLIAMS (Art Journalist - The Art World Post - USA - 02/2024)

Eliora Bousquet, a French-listed professional abstract painter and illustrator, embarks on a journey through color, emotion, and the boundless realm of abstract art. Born in the quaint town of Angoulême, France, in 1970, Eliora’s artistic odyssey began in 2009. Her story, woven with celestial inspiration and a dedication to capturing the essence of the infinite, unfolds beneath the canvas of summer evenings and the twinkling embrace of starlit skies.

As a child, Eliora found herself enraptured by the cosmic ballet above. Beneath the celestial tapestry, bathed in the soft glow of starlight, she sat with her family, her father’s fingers strumming melodies on the guitar. It was on one such enchanted night, at the tender age of seven, that Eliora’s journey into the world of art took flight.

“Daddy, are these stars far away?” she inquired, her youthful wonder echoing into the night.

“Oh, yes! Very far away! They are in infinite space!” her father replied.

“What’s infinity?” she pressed, her curiosity ignited by the vastness of the universe.

“Infinity? …Well… when you get there, it’s still a little further away!” he chuckled.

Since that momentous night, Eliora has tirelessly committed the sky to canvas. Her collection, aptly titled ‘CELESTIAL VISIONS,’ is a testament to her vision—a realm untethered from earthly bounds, a kaleidoscope of iridescence and brilliance. With each brushstroke, she paints not the sky as it is, but as she envisions it—a celestial expanse belonging to all, yet bowing to no master.

In Eliora’s own words, “‘CELESTIAL VISIONS’ exists as an eternal sanctuary of divine beauty, a symphony of perfection and harmony, a liminal space between yesterday and tomorrow, where freedom finds its essence, and imagination takes flight.” It is a tribute to the inherent beauty of the cosmos, an invitation to marvel at the wonders that surround us and to safeguard their sanctity.

Her dedication to capturing the essence of the infinite extends beyond the confines of her studio. Eliora’s work serves as a beacon of inspiration for those who retain the innocence of a child’s soul, reminding us to pause, to admire, and to cherish the masterpiece that is the universe. Through her art, she invites us to embrace the beauty that surrounds us and to find solace in the boundless expanse of the cosmos.

In a world often fraught with chaos and uncertainty, Eliora’s paintings offer a moment of respite—a chance to gaze upon the heavens and to be reminded of the awe-inspiring beauty of the universe. With each stroke of her brush, she invites us to join her on a journey through the cosmos, where imagination knows no bounds and the possibilities are endless.

As we navigate the complexities of life, may we take a moment to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us - to find solace in the vastness of the universe and to marvel at the wonders that lie beyond. And in doing so, may we heed Eliora’s call to safeguard the sanctity of our celestial home, preserving its beauty for generations to come.

Eliora Bousquet’s art is more than just a visual feast - it is a testament to the power of imagination, a celebration of the infinite, and a reminder of the beauty that lies within us all. Through her paintings, she invites us to embrace the wonder of the cosmos and to find joy in the simple act of gazing upon the stars. So let us pause, if only for a moment, and allow ourselves to be swept away by the beauty of Eliora’s ‘CELESTIAL VISIONS.’

Ann WILLIAMS (Art Journalist - Project High Art - USA - 09/2023)

"Eliora Bousquet, a French-listed professional abstract painter and illustrator affiliated with the ‘Maison des Artistes,’ has been creating art since 2009. Born in the picturesque town of Angoulême, France, in 1970, Eliora’s artistic journey is a remarkable odyssey through color, emotion, and the boundless realm of abstract art.

Eliora’s artistic odyssey began at the tender age of seven, where she first dipped her brush into the world of art. Her initial foray was into the realm of figurative subjects, encompassing landscapes, birds, flowers, and portraits. However, as she honed her craft, she found herself disconnecting from these ‘real’ subjects, delving deeper into the realm of abstract expression. Her focus shifted from the precision of brushwork and meticulous rendition of colors to the uncharted territories of imagination, dreams, freedom of expression, and, most importantly, emotion—elements she values above all else.

It was Claude Monet’s Impressionism that provided the bridge for Eliora’s natural transition into abstract painting. Over the years, she delved deeper into the intricacies of symbolic, expressionist, lyrical, and atmospheric abstract art. What truly captivates Eliora about abstraction is its innate ability to assume diverse meanings depending on the observer. This unique phenomenon, often referred to as “scotomization,” allows the mind to perceive what it wishes to see, rendering each artwork a personal and intimate experience. Eliora often remarks that no one remains passive in front of an abstract painting; they either ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ it, but the painting always provokes contemplation, leaving no one indifferent. It is this aspect that fascinates her most about abstract art – its power to compel us to experience a work rather than merely observe it, guiding us to perceive with our hearts and transcending the canvas itself.

Emotion, for Eliora, is the primary wellspring of inspiration. As Paul Cézanne aptly stated, “A work of art that does not originate from emotion cannot be deemed Art.” This quote resonates deeply with Eliora, as she believes that emotion is the life force that breathes vitality into her creations.

Eliora Bousquet’s paintings are an exquisite fusion of pure, vivid, and vibrant colors, characterized by a dynamic sense of movement. Her works showcase a distinct inclination towards the full spectrum of blues and greens, achieved through her relentless experimentation with various painting techniques, including acrylic, ink, and watercolor. Her application of paint varies, sometimes in a single, substantial layer, evident in collections like “Naturessences,” “Evanescence,” “Chromatic Fantasiae,” and “Poetic Fictions.” At other times, her paintings emerge through a sequence of delicate, gossamer-thin layers, as witnessed in “Celestial Visions” and “Renaissance.” The colors in Eliora’s work are never pre-selected; they flow naturally, guided by the emotions she intends to convey, the ambience she aims to establish, or even her state of mind at the inception of her creative process.

In Eliora’s hands, colors are not just pigments but a language unto themselves, each hue possessing its own unique meaning and vibration. She orchestrates her color combinations meticulously, crafting harmony and visual equilibrium in her compositions. Her paramount objective is to move her viewers, to instill in them a sense of wonder at the beauty of our world, all through paintings laden with numerous messages. Symbolism plays a significant role in her artworks, often drawing inspiration from literary sources, particularly 19th-century Romantic Poetry, mythologies, and ancient civilizations.

Eliora’s artistic process is a fascinating journey in itself. She has practiced meditation and creative visualization for many years, immersing herself in poetry and allowing classical or jazz music to envelop her senses for inspiration. Subsequently, she paints swiftly and spontaneously, capturing a photograph of a dream on canvas. While she harbors a clear vision of her artistic intent, she allows her heart and imagination to guide her without imposing control, always prioritizing emotion over technique. In this regard, she posits that she may belong to her works more than they belong to her.

Eliora’s body of work encompasses seven distinct collections, each akin to a trilogy where each piece references and inspires others. Understanding a single artwork often necessitates an exploration of the entire collection, unveiling clues to a captivating puzzle that Eliora occasionally perceives her artworks to be. With over 1,000 artworks to her credit, Eliora Bousquet has been a consistent participant in exhibitions worldwide, totaling over 190. Her artistry extends beyond the canvas, as she has transformed her paintings into a range of home decor products and fashion items, allowing her vision to reach a broader audience.

In a world where art often seeks to capture the tangible, Eliora Bousquet’s work reminds us that true art transcends the physical. Her paintings invite us to explore the boundless realm of emotion and imagination. Through her art, she beckons us to perceive with our hearts, to experience the beauty of the world in a way that is uniquely our own. Paul Cézanne’s words echo through her work, reminding us that emotion is the cornerstone of art, and Eliora Bousquet’s art is a testament to the enduring power of emotion in the world of abstract expression. Her vibrant canvases are not just paintings; they are portals to a world where emotion takes center stage, inviting us to join her on a journey through the ever-evolving landscape of abstract art."

ANGELO RIBEZZI (Art Critic - Italy- 01/2022)

"Enciclopedia dei Contemporanei dell'Arte 2022"

"Artista professionista francese di grande talento e profonda sensibilità artistica, trae una intima ispirazione dalla poesia romantica e dalla musica classica e jazz, per riuscire ad esterorizzare magistralmente, pienamente ed intasamente le proprie emozione più recondite. Eliora Bousquet ci presenta un’opera straordinaria "L’effeto mare", un’opera astratta si potrebbe definire in quanto non rientrante nel figurativismo classico, ma in certo modo potrebbe essere una classificazione limitante, perché l’artista vuole fornirci una chiave interpretativa fornendoci il titolo che suggerisce quello che intendeva riportare, il suo effeto mare non è altro che l’essenza stessa del mare, di come lei lo sente, una magnifica e esplosione di onde e di shizzi, alternando colori caldi e freddi in questa sua fantastica pittura acrilica". 

'A professional French artist of great talent and deep artistic sensitivity, (Eliora Bousquet) draws intimate inspiration from romantic poetry and classical and jazz music, to masterfully externalize and fully express her deepest emotions. Eliora Bousquet presents us with an extraordinary work, 'L'effetto mare', an abstract work that could be defined as such because it does not fall into classic figurativism, but this could be a limiting classification, as the artist wants to provide us with an interpretative key by giving us the title that suggests what she intended to convey. Her 'effetto mare' is nothing but the essence of the sea itself, as she feels it, a magnificent explosion of waves and splashes, alternating warm and cold colors in this fantastic acrylic painting.'

Mouna Daimallah (Student in History of Art - France - 07/2020)

"À l’image d’une voile qui se promène dans l’immensité d’un espace vaste et aquatique, "Le souffle du zéphyr" est une œuvre qui explore l’infinité d’une palette de couleurs vives et dynamiques dont le rythme est produit par des mouvements à la fois doux et assourdissants.

C’est en jouant sur une fréquence du geste, une pulsion, une mobilité, que l’artiste Eliora Bousquet exprime une sorte de musicalité des couleurs, à travers une explosion de tons et de nuances qui, loin de se confronter, se fondent ensemble et s’harmonisent dans une eurythmie absolue.

Une légèreté presque lyrique survole l’ensemble de l’œuvre et plonge le spectateur dans une sérénité profonde, qui l’espace d’un court instant met en suspens tout repère temporel. Au-delà de la mise en place d’un langage par les couleurs, un dialogue visuel se créé par les interactions et les échanges avec la matière. A travers le travail des superpositions, écoulements et ondulations, émerge une symphonie qui prend vie et se propage dans chaque particule de peinture colorée.

Par ailleurs, le passage progressif du bleu au rouge crée une variation d’atmosphère, ce contraste de température apporte un équilibre constant entre chaleur et froideur. La trace de la couleur engendre alors peu à peu celle du temps, et invite le spectateur à être absorbé par les effets d’altération, de disparition et d’empreintes du corps matériel de l’œuvre.

Ainsi, "Le souffle du zéphyr" par sa dimension à la fois vaporeuse et aquatique nous permet de ressentir toute l’apesanteur et la frénésie qui se reflètent dans l’œuvre à travers un ouragan de couleurs qui coexistent au sein du tableau".

'Like a sail that wanders in the vast and aquatic expanse, 'Westwind' is a work that explores the infinity of a palette of lively and dynamic colors whose rhythm is produced by movements that are both soft and thunderous. By playing with the frequency of gesture, impulse, and mobility, artist Eliora Bousquet expresses a sort of musicality of colors through an explosion of tones and shades that, far from confronting each other, merge together and harmonize in absolute eurythmy.

A lightness that is almost lyrical hovers over the entire work and plunges the viewer into a deep serenity, which, for a brief moment, suspends all temporal reference. Beyond the establishment of a language through colors, a visual dialogue is created through interactions and exchanges with the material. Through the work of superimpositions, flows, and undulations, a symphony emerges that comes to life and spreads in every particle of colored paint.
Furthermore, the gradual transition from blue to red creates a variation of atmosphere, and this temperature contrast brings a constant balance between warmth and coldness. The trace of color gradually generates that of time, inviting the viewer to be absorbed by the effects of alteration, disappearance, and imprints of the material body of the work.

Thus, "Westwind" with its both vaporous and aquatic dimension, allows us to feel all the weightlessness and frenzy that are reflected in the work through a hurricane of colors that coexist within the painting.'

Maria NIKOLA (Assistante Galeriste - France - 10/2019)

"Pour Eliora Bousquet la peinture est un langage à part entière qui se distingue des mots par sa totale liberté d’expression. L’artiste est une âme lyrique : c’est la poésie qui l’inspire et qui lui donne la passion des couleurs. Ses peintures sont submergées de couleurs vivantes. Son travail est caractérisé d’une force qui est liée à la tendresse et d’une violence qui surgit de la poésie.

La source de sa création est la fragilité continuelle qu’elle éprouve comme une force incontestable. Pour elle, la fragilité n’est rien d’autre que la vérité qui révèle en même temps sa profonde beauté. Ce sentiment se reflète également dans sa série "Renaissance". Celle-ci est propre à une éclosion d’une floraison énergétique.

En référence à sa période préférée de l’histoire qui était déterminée par la créativité et le renouveau, on perçoit qu’elle rêve d’un printemps éternel où l’espoir fleurit. Chaque tableau fait penser à une éclosion énergétique. On peut dire que sa passion pour la peinture et sa fascination pour les arts s’imposent à elle, c’est à dire sa détermination, sa façon de vivre. Ses peintures sont remplies de mouvements dynamiques et d’un jeu de couleurs.

Son travail évoque une métamorphose qui se nourrit de l’imprévisibilité de la vie. Selon l’artiste elle-même, il faut prendre soin de chaque instant comme d’une fleur fragile : le bonheur n’est fait que d’instants ; il faut rester vigilant et reconnaître l'espoir comme la source d’un pouvoir sage."

'For Eliora Bousquet, painting is a language in its own right that distinguishes itself from words through its total freedom of expression. The artist is a lyrical soul: it is poetry that inspires her and gives her a passion for colors. Her paintings are submerged in vivid colors. Her work is characterized by a strength that is linked to tenderness and a violence that emerges from poetry.

The source of her creation is the continual fragility that she experiences as an undeniable force. For her, fragility is nothing but truth that reveals its deep beauty at the same time. This feeling is also reflected in her series "Renaissance", which is characterized by an energetic blossoming.

In reference to her favorite period of history, which was determined by creativity and renewal, one perceives that she dreams of an eternal spring where hope flourishes. Each painting is reminiscent of an energetic blossoming. One could say that her passion for painting and her fascination for the arts impose themselves on her, that is, her determination, her way of life. Her paintings are filled with dynamic movements and a play of colors.

Her work evokes a metamorphosis that feeds on the unpredictability of life. According to the artist herself, one must take care of each moment like a fragile flower: happiness is made up of moments; one must remain vigilant and recognize hope as the source of wise power.'

OXANA ALBOT (Art Critic and Art Historian - Monaco Principaty - 09/2019)

"1° Grand Premio Montecarlo - Oscar della Creatività 2019"

"Capace di suscitare emozioni più disparate, l'arte di Eliora Bousquet diventa une lezione socratica dove l'artista, come un vero maestro del colore, suscita nello spettatore il desiderio di andare oltre. La spettacolarità della dansza dei colori rimanda all'universo fantasmagorico dell'arte impressionista, per toccare ancora una volta il cielo multicolore della vita umana con le mani."

'Able to elicit the most disparate emotions, Eliora Bousquet's art becomes a Socratic lesson where the artist, like a true master of color, inspires in the viewer the desire to go beyond.

"Artista particolarmente sensibile. Nelle sue opere prevale l'azzuro, sfumato dal blu cobalto al celeste, da verdi smeraldini, che si fondano nel giallo, l'amaranto ed il bianco. La sua pittura è intensa, vitale, affascinante per il senso di mistero che aleggia nelle atmosfere, dove si stempera il rigore costruttivo delle forme, e si intridono i sentimenti dell'animo, in una sublime inesauribile tensione verso i valori piu puri dell'exsistenza."

'A particularly sensitive artist, in her works blue prevails, ranging from cobalt blue to sky blue, mixed with emerald green, which blend into yellow, amaranth, and white.

Group Exhibition 'Woman's Essence 2018' + Art Contest 'Woman Art Award 2018'

"She gets the passion for colors from the romantic poetry, which was followed by the desire for free expression that painting and drawing contain in themselves. The symbolism between words and images pervades her research and the creative act is necessity, ultimately is the common thread that permeates her work and her life. The color in its bright nuances creates a real and personal language, through which to seek answers to existential questions, bring back reflections born from a spiritual question. Looking through the art to this 'perfect plan' that is life, aimed at the investigation of new things to discover of an ancient time such as The Renaissance, which has laid the foundations for the future while maintaining that sense of mistery. All her research is pervaded by symbols that she seeks and brings back into her art. The birds with their stylised feathers, the sea, the boats, the golden spiral live in the pictorial space, leaving the spectator the task of deciphering them."

SANDRO SERRADIFALCO (Art Critic - Italy - 04/2017)

"Biennale Internazionale d'Arte del Mediterraneo - MeArt 2017"

"Eliora Bousquet possiede un'illimitata fantasia compositiva, che spazia nel cosmo, inebriata dal suo infinito silenzio. Pittrice di solido talento, si cimenta in narrazioni che in una prima analisi possono apparire inconsuete ma che decisamente sono ispirate da una cultura vasta e poliedrica. l'artista scrive con il pennello et con i colori vividi le rielaborazioni del suo amplio bagaglio culturale, muovendosi con agilità tra svariati concetti dimostrando una grande padronanza degli stessi e delle loro implicazioni. Ci incanta per la sua profondità di pensiero, e raffina in ogni sua nuova tela, la sua già valida tecnica pittorica creando così un universo immaginario che dal reale muove verso il transcendentale attingendo alla fonte della fantasia (.../...) Il suo lavoro possa essere testimonianza concreta dell'eccellenza artistica internazionale." 

'Eliora Bousquet possesses an unlimited compositional fantasy that ranges throughout the cosmos, enraptured by its infinite silence. A painter of solid talent, she engages in narrations that at first analysis may appear unusual, but which are undoubtedly inspired by a vast and multifaceted culture. The artist writes with the brush and with vivid colors the reworkings of her wide-ranging cultural baggage, moving with agility among various concepts and demonstrating a great mastery of them and their implications. She enchants us with her depth of thought and refines in every new canvas her already valid pictorial technique, thus creating an imaginary universe that moves from the real towards the transcendent, drawing from the source of fantasy (.../...) Her work can be concrete testimony to international artistic excellence.'

MARIAROSARIA BELGIOVINE (Art Critic and Curator - Italy - 02/2017)

"Trofeo World Art Collection 2017"

"Un'espressione cromatica dai flussi emozionali, comunicati dalla sua gestualità e dai suoi stati d'animo. Il cromatismo caldo e ricco di energie, coinvolge ed irradia di luci e riflessi, con abile interpretazione della sua tecnica compositiva fatta di suggestive reazioni evocative."

"Premio Biennale Palma d'Oro per l'Arte 2016"

"Oscar dell' Arte Visive" - Principate di Monaco 2015"

"Una gestualità pittorica ricca di intense stesure materiche, vibra con intensi tratti di vivaci accostamenti, in una esplosione di radiosa energia. L'artista è simbolicamente attratta da ogni inconscia trasformazione visiva, nell'evocazione emotiva della sua intensa creatività."

SANDRINE BARRÉ (Journalist - France - 08/2013)

Créa Magazine - August 2013

"Les couleurs palpitent et se chevauchent sur la toile en une magnifique envolée lyrique. Les tons chauds se mêlent au bleu turquoise et éclatent en volutes vives et gracieuses. Les graphismes semblent jaillir du coeur de l'artiste, sublimés par son authentique et inimitable coup de pinceau." 

'The colors pulsate and overlap on the canvas in a magnificent lyrical flight. Warm tones blend with turquoise blue and burst into lively and graceful spirals. The graphics seem to spring from the heart of the artist, sublimated by her authentic and inimitable brushstroke.'

ANNA FRANCESCA BIONDOLILLO (Art Critic - Italy - 05/2013)

"Arte e Poesia" - Overart Magazine

"L'arte della pittrice Bousquet inizia sempre con un percoso di ricerca, soprattutto di indagine sull'espressione non figurativa. Le sue opere, nell'equilibrio raffinato delle masse di colore, sono restituite nell'atto di compiere un movimento: sono "fermate" dall'abile mano della pittrice con grazia e capacità tecnica." 

'The art of Painter Bousquet always begins with a journey of research, especially in the exploration of non-figurative expression. Her works, in the refined balance of color masses, are portrayed in the act of performing a movement: they are "stopped" by the skillful hand of the painter with grace and technical ability.'

LETIZIA LANZAROTTI (Art Critic - Italy - 05/2013)

"Arte e Poesia" - Overart Magazine

"Affiorno freschi ricordi
Di palpiti fatti d'estate
Fontane che sgorgano rame
Colori lucenti di tracce.
Morbide et fluide le trame
Danzanti di scuri scompensi.
L'aspetto più blu dell'amore
Profondo infinito dei sensi."

'Fresh memories surround me
Of heartbeats in the summer
Fountains gushing copper
Colors gleaming with traces
Soft and fluid the weavings
Dancing in dark disarray
The bluest aspect of love
Deep infinite of the senses.'
