NO ARTXIT … ENGLISH VERSION
Set the first step on a boundless journey… Come in and let Christine Palau’s inks and oil on canvas, Marie Celante and Nathalie Soulas’s photographs, Karine Aboudarham’s screen printings, Jocelyne Outrequin’s gyotakus and photographs, m.i.n.u.i.t.’s watercolors take you beyond the walls of your imagination.
Marie Celante Michka has elected the Gallery L’Écume Quantique to display her photographs focusing in extreme close-up on ships’ hulls.
Her almost macrophotographic approach transforms the commonplace into artistic abstraction.
One could never guess that the effects of aging and marine fouling on hull paint initiated her creative process.
Born in Normandy, Marie Celante has never lost touch with the sea and excels in rewriting the stories told by distressed ships’ hulls.
Christine Palau’s tools of the trade are painting knives and oils as well as inks.
She works ‘out of the blue’, free from pre-existing representations or preparatory sketches.
She mixes, spreads, scratches, caresses the oils on the canvas. Incidentally she uses brushes to build up spontaneous compositions.
Though she restricts her range of colours to Payne’s grey, fir green, blues and ochres, her paintings evoke imaginary landscapes, as if seen through a kaleidoscope: urban skylines, seascapes, apocalyptic scenery, Rorschach test images: fantasy is also in the eye of the beholder.
