Hélène Rivière lives and works in Grenoble.
She graduated with honours from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux Arts in Paris.
Printmaking is a medium in its own right for this artist, who has chosen to innovate and experiment outside traditional techniques. Her works could be defined first and foremost as inks on paper. It's not the multiple that interests her, but being able to combine colour with the possibilities of printing. The technique she calls "card block print" consists of a cardboard matrix that is cut into several parts, which are then inked and printed using a press in several passes of different colours. Her work is inspired by her daily life and her escapades in the mountains around Grenoble.
