Shaping / Modeling / Terracotta
Hélène Yousse creates her art with total allegiance, without concessions, out of a necessity.
A necessity that doesn’t admit any giving up.
Which besoin draws its energy from the throbbing of an open wound, driven by the urgency to say directly what has to be said.
What would be without this creation of art, the manipulation of matter?
Isolation, madness, death, life, hope,.., Head off to....It is the "Terres" Collection!
The duration defines the time; determined in a connection between tension of the observer who oscillates between ordinary and extraordinary, emotion or anger,
The souls, the bodies are present.
The sculptures are so present, while their figures question their absence.
Hélène lives among her characters.
She speaks with them. She touches them. She caresses them. They are alive.
Felt Industrial / Acrylic / Collage
...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!
Patinated Porcelain Sandstone
An artist of the whole and full forms, the sculptor works first and foremost in clay, plaster then porcelain stoneware and finally porcelain, thus moving from the harshness of one material to the delicacy of another.
Each medium gives birth to a different expression expresses with the same material a period of letting go where organic forms mingle in a tumultuous flow.
Caroline Chopin shapes spontaneously, without preparatory work, it is her gestures, contact with the earth, the instinctive movement that brings her towards creation, then the forms overlap, volumes emerge and the harmonization of forms. leads to the birth of the work.
Both real and imaginary, imprints of finesse or robustness, revealing curves or edges, smooth or rough, slender or massive, Caroline Chopin's creations are the fruit of the reflection and questioning of an artist who seeks always reaching the depth of beings or things and who questions them.
Wood, Sand, Paper, Cardboard
PiCrate likes Prévert and suddenly we understand better ...
Artist, painter, sculptor, engraver, piCrate does not claim any label that it would, in fact, deem definitively uncomfortable.
The only thing that matters to him is this singular universe, sometimes surreal, often unequivocal, in turn, militant and moving.
1 time, 2 times, 10 times you look at your work and you can be jostled, seduced, moved, ...,
This is the essential!
