This is seen, not only in her choices of subjects, but in her preferred techniques as well.  Recklessly torn bits of paper in her paintings add the striking elements in her provocative body of works. Her large canvasses have been crisscrossed with bold strokes of shrill, vivid color.  Meanwhile, her sharp, but seemingly nervous, brushstrokes, in which borders fade away, have been marked by strong mixed-media treatment which provides something close to a visual shock – something that pushes the viewers to interrogate the nature of reality. 

De Lorme works from ads, provocative titles, comics, and characters, layered by vintage cinema posters, with ripped edges. Her deconstructive work diverts the matter from its initial meaning by reinterpreting it and suggesting other narratives.  She has mastered a critical approach intended to arouse awareness.

Delphine de Lorme was born in 1967, in Paris.

Raised by a family of artists, de Lorme has been painting all her life.  She sold her first painting at age 17 and has never ceased since then.   Before fully devoting her time and fulfilling her passion for art and painting, she studied dance and theater and spent over 15 years in the exciting world of TV directing in Paris. 

De Lorme has shown great interest in the jet set society and in their continuous quest for their own identity.  Her body of works is a true representation of this so-called ‘dolce vita’ – essentially characterized  by glamour, flamboyance, and superficiality. Despite her ‘carefree life’, de Lorme reveals the violent paradox between a global reality dominated by power and injustice and a fervent desire to express a life – both magical and tragic.
