Biography[edit | edit source]
Alix Morel was born in 1982 in Amiens and raised in a family of musicians. Since she was a child, music and arts have been a constant reference in her life and, later, in her work.
She is Gustave Dussart’s great-granddaughter, a celebrated sculptor who established himself in Paris and Monaco. Alix Morel studied Fine Arts and History of art at the University Picardie Jules Verne of Amiens and at the Accademia di belle Arti di L’Aquila. She then travelled to Italy, for working artistic purposes and had the opportunity to study XVth to XVII th c. artists. This artistic period is a recurring allusion in Alix Morel’s painting.
In 2009, after having started her artistic career, she decided to add a Master in Sociology to her curriculum which remains a reference in her research in the role of women in society.
She then lived in Rome, where she developed a knowledge and passion for the antiquity period.
Bach to France, she decided to settle her studios in Amiens and in Le-Touquet-Paris-Plage.
Since 2015 she manages the Ateliers Alix Morel, an art school based in Amiens.
She is also the artistic director of the « collectif Arts-3Baies », the aim of which is to organize artistic encounters and events.
Artistic style[edit | edit source]
After having worked on abstract painting during her studies and at the beginning of her career, Alix Morel made the choice to work on figurative painting.
Moreover, she is particularly sensitive to the development of feelings and emotions we all experiment some day or other. In this respect, and as a matter of consequence, her painting deals with introspection, compassion and humanism and sounds like an echo to our lives.
Alix Morel’s work and research are mainly focused on the place and role women are playing in our society.
