...The artistic universe of the Slovak artist Monika Sabo is at the very least surprising or extraordinary.
Dreamlike or particularly realistic, it gathers, individuality, human crowd,..
Those are Singular-Plural Gaze which can express such, pain, love, passion as well as emotion, sadness and ... joy.
Original works with crucifying faces, the expressed words of Monika Sabo overwhelm and take us away.
How can one express this necessity of the exploration of the self without harassing our deep faith in others?
For the artist, the unreality of dream, and thought, spring up in her works or gazes; portraits and bodies are but noisy cries, vectors of the ordinary or silence of the immortality!?....

...What the image of our way of being says to reality, of the shocks that drive us over time are resurgences that are part of the present.
They are full and empty, a whole which in my work has its source in the archaic, the living and the intimate!
... I try to find a kind of aesthetic of the skin, a way to define the mixed sufferings and pleasures, to mean the digging down to the bone.I explore through games of materials, a language dictated by the appearance of drop shadows...Each ripple updates the idea of a presence and questions the fragility of the links in a rushed and illusory time ...

...And it is an unthinkable and magnificent future she offers to the discarded matter, if the matter trusts her, in a movement simultaneously spiritual and material, physical and intellectual, soaring and patient, which constitutes the process of creation by which, humbly, in a fold of time buried in the heart of everyday life, she transfigures!
Yes, Nadine Vergues transfigures, both creator and creature, she transfigures fabrics and metals, discarded felts and the scraps of rolls.
Sometimes after long and beautiful preliminary drawings, armed with soldering irons, punching, cutting, piercing and heating machinery, she cuts, carves, unwraps, surrounds, assembles, combines, sews, cuts and re-sews, solder, melts, and under the force of her elbows, miracles are created...
Unclassifiable, unbreakable and delicate metamorphoses, paintings sculpted in the material, assembly of forms that remember the humanity of their creator, a crowd of faces without masks, whose intense and interior look respects us and ask us to "choose! "

If one examines Philippe Dummont's artistic path, one might be led to believe that it is a simple progression from figurative art to the abstract.
But it is rather a matter of abstraction of the body in order to bandage it, as if in a slightly melancholic daydream.
As a result, the colours of the figures slowly fade away with the fading of the day.
Already beings of uncertain age who posed in his first portraits and other watercolours seemed to melt into their environment, and their drowned gazes envisioned a space outside the frame.
With black and white values, and the shift to shades ofgrey, the ontology of the figures is reconstituted.
It organizes elements into strange elucidations, self-intrusions of limbs and guts, cohesive connections of piping and organs. Crapper, pipes, breasts. Against all expectations, the living and the inert blend together harmoniously, in all material inclination.
The artist's charcoaled fingers probe the paper to unexpected depths, and intimacy emerges. This black mirror presents us with a vibrant and disturbing image of upturned remains, of whispering urges. The sculptures exhibit themselves religiously, backlit.

«...My existence is constituted of two fundamentals, Appearance and Inner Self.
Appearance is sensory to me, the structural Inner Self.
From ancestral to today, from alchemy to Art; knowledge and existence have never ceased to evolve.
We ourselves, due to our existance in time, are a part of Art; without it we wouldn’t properly exist.
Interiority results from this transition through Art, from the organic state and becoming spiritual... »
My painting is the birth of a pictorial fact.
It is a search in perpetual change, structuring an introspective universe, in accordance with the laws of an inner world.
The line, the form, the colour are my pictorial component, those to which my thought are dedicated, reaching for objectivity to executeand create...»

Hubert Duprilot suggests a peculiar painting premise, between art brut and expressionism.
A boundless search to offer a work apart, which inevitably leaves a strong mark in the mind of the Regardeur.
His very remarkable representation of humanity shows great sensitivity, a visceral need to paint.
The colors, the serious, mythological or "lighter" subjects reflect the relationship between man and his condition.
His approach places him in a prestigious furrow that once used Zoran Music or Giacometti.
Hubert Duprilot was born in 1975 and lives in Rouen in France.

The work of Macsime exists as the artist lives, independent, suspicious, doubtful, ..., prolific and generous !!
He mixes the expressions to the best of the suggestions imposed on him by his uncertainties, reflections or flashes of light.
So everything becomes limpid, alive, delicate or poetic!
This is how there is everything to look at, to discover, to love!

...We have to be - Regardeurs - at his work; it's rare ; it's a lot ; it is essential !
We are caught up in these movements, this constant expression of living force or delicate existence ...
We become alive, by spirals and other macules always fluid, transparent or dense in color. Sometimes like with the thread of a puppet it takes us to another destination, another landmark, another attention ...
Patrick Paufert is shy of the expressions he gives us without restraint however; and no doubt, thus, he dares and brings to our soul, some additional lives.
We understand in -Regardeur- that we do not live in proxy but in some consciences where our memory is a reality.
We thus understand, the joys, the happiness, and movements of lives, which forever present in our memories, will be enough to confirm us that we exist!...

What if we had to invoke our flesh, our memories, our thoughts?
What colors, movements, moods or ironies would really say who we are?
Bright, Alive, Dense, Thick, Unreal ... Yes, all these are the senses and the ordinary expression of this Andalusian Painter.
He paints without false modesty, forcing the erasure of the times of the doubt that touches us here and there.
He paints moods, memories, flesh, presences, beauty!
And how can we not consider this, that nothing really exists in his work that does not suggest some other identities !?
The pupils of these portraits are onlookers ...
The bodies or the faces are of unmitigated colors ...
Thus, we move away with him for some other paradigms, more prone to freedom or delusions.
Antonio Cabello Reyes is an unusual painter, whole, ..., his irony is fertile and luminous.
