Instigate the encounter of zellige and paper and witness the birth of a whole new universe. Samir Mazer opens a breach in the world of material to arouse infinite geometric trajectories. All lead back to the unpredictable shimmer of clay tile.
In the collection, the age-old handicraft of zellige has been reinvented, two fold. In a first composition, the artist combines, juxtaposes, refreshes and explores the balances and imbalances of shapes with an 11x11cm square matrix as the sole production base. Transposed on paper, his creation releases a new poetry, it conveys its Arab-Andalusian heritage in a vibrant creation, sometimes almost accidental, always fascinating.
Finding yourself alone, observing Nature, listening and feeling. Face to face with your soul, your state of mind at that moment, your own reflection. Charlotte Morot offers a soothing world full of introspection where your consciousness takes pleasure in wandering.
The works in this collection draw directly from the emotion of the moment, that of Charlotte Morot who transposes it directly, instinctively, through ink on wet paper. By summoning what is deepest and most primitive within each of us and entrusting colour with its translation, she in turn unfolds silence, solitude, mystery ... That which is ingrained in us without being expressed, whose manifestation can only be triggered by a landscape, suddenly appears.
Redfield & Dattner
Redfield & Dattner take us into sensitive and often evanescent worlds, by deconstructing, blurring or reinterpreting the features of classical painting and the tradition of lightly painted decorations. Poetry of vaporous surfaces, nebulous gradations and coloured sensations.
With Asteré, the two artists transpose their art, huge hand-painted wall decors onto wallpaper. Through this shift, they offer us the opportunity to immerse ourselves in their delicate frescoes from the comfort of our homes, enveloping and infinite matrices. We encounter soft marbles, dreamlike skies and fine wooden vessels in trompe-l'oeil. We discover the feel of transparent glazes, rich tempura hues, or the delicacy of whitewash that have marked the pictorial practices of past centuries, transposed into the present.
The artists dedicate this collection to the women who inspire them and accompany them in their quest for creation and harmony.
At first glance, they seem to be freshly painted works, almost wet from the studio. This outstanding performance is no less than the climax of the journey François Mascarello undertook, exploring all possible printing techniques to insinuate body and life into his patterns and materials, all the way to the finest indentations of a brushstroke.
This corpus grants straw, oil-paint and kraft a way to transcend their original state to offer precious and sculptural works. While the artist spent weeks with the machinery to find the best way to allow the finesse of the colours and the richness of the material to stand out, nothing is left to be seen of this quest but the incredible and tangible presence of the work. The relief-painting effect performed by the swelling of the ink, the hypnotising shimmering of metallic silk, the shine of copper, all are wonders to the eye.
Meeting with a solar imagination, that of Garance Vallée. The transposition of her terrestrial and archetypal mythology to the wall with Asteré takes us straight to a place where paint and colour pencils are live. Fascination has just become too hard to elude and so be it.
The collection manoeuvres shapes to a surrealist world, trumps our eye with materials and walks a free line between primordial ceramics and modernist patterns. It almost feels like a utopian anthem as it digs the earth and the many strata of civilisations, excavating stairs, arches, vases, troglodyte alcoves. None of them brought up in their literal sense, always on the verge of meta-amphorisms, carving curiosity. Be ready to experience the signature colour palette of the artist and its luminous natural hues: terracotta, powdery cocoa, burnt spices...
Joining forces to break new aesthetic grounds with Porter Teleo. A stickler for all things dexterous, the duo harnessed the power of Asteré’s creative methods and printing processes to represent the subtlest nuance from their colourful and layered paintings. Something new was born, something terribly exciting, avid to create moments of beauty.
Colour is a true queen throughout the collection. Whether by enlivening the shapes of colour field painting, calling careful attention to the golden cracks of a kintsugi or composing balance with abstract expressionism, it yields revelations and surprises aplenty. Courtesy of super-pigmented inks and the most careful choice of paper, depth and movement arise, imparting a true sense of the handmade in each panel. Emotions prevail too: here come freedom, boundary-toppling and large-scale feelings.
