At first, Zineb Guérout’s painting evolved in a world where dream and surrealism happily coexisted. By chance she met painters whose mode of expression was totally opposite from hers, that of geometrical abstraction. The contact happened at Claude Dorval’s gallery in Paris.
For several years the famous curator welcomed Zineb Guérout, among her abstract artists, without any explanation.
Zineb’s paintings emerge more and more pure, still without becoming abstract, but keeping this part of lyricism, there is a constant play between shape, space and light, this is her long lasting trade mark and it gives a particular presence in each of her paintings.
