Nelly is a French collagiste. Her universe is a feminine one, sensual, coloured, mysterious, funny, often disturbing. Her collages must be shown like mirrors, full of symbols. Each of them tells a story. Her main themes are Woman condition, female myths (Lilith, Salomé, Cassandra, Amazons…), relationship between Man and Woman.
Exhibited in France and in Europe, her artworks illustrate papers, novels as La Vénus à la fourrure de Sader-Masoch (2015), poems (La Femme n’existe pas of Siham Mehaimzi). Nelly Sanchez also creates posters, book covers.
These works complement her research and essays on French women’s literature.
