Biography

“[…] Ludivine Allegue, […] a pictorial work where the canvas gains prominence full of pain, mystery, memory and poetry.” JOSÉ FCO MEGÍAS FLÓREZ, CONDE DUQUE MUSEUM, MADRID, SPAIN.

“[…]her artistic world is: integrating, binding, vast, extensive, extensible. Wherever she looks, she sees something relevant to her work. But if she closes her eyes, she also can see blankness, absence, blackness and memories […], she knows how to codify them to make them part of her creative process.” PILAR G. RODRÍGUEZ; “LUDIVINE ALLEGUE – LO QUE EL LIENZO ESCONDE” DESCUBRIR EL ARTE Nº233, JULY 2018.
