Graphic Inspirations

PAINTING ONE'S OWN REALITIES

3_Peindre_Carmagnola_PVDesignsAW1718

Painting shapes realities, inviting us to dive into colour and material - whether real or virtual, matte or luminous - to pull decoration, figures and artworks out of their traditional arenas.

4_Peindre_ZANDER_PVDesignsAW1718

Realism transformed thanks to a fresh look at the so-called 'normal' or 'original', and reinterpreted graphic expressions are an invitation to these bold marriages between digital and artistic writings.

Indoor scenes or outdoor landscape, daily objects or subconscious images, still-lifes or imagined patterns are all sketched using traditional or digital techniques, always brilliantly expressed.

DELICATELY INVENTING

LONGINA_PHILLIPS_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

The eye is sharpened to the extreme. Engraving grows more refined, skilfully criss-crossing to let the prodigiously tiny evoke a notion of unfathomable space.

 

1_DELICATESSE_HAMMOND_DUPONT_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

Nature disappears into the infinitely small, and florals find escape in ethereal universes.

Solarisation is reinterpreted through strange, wintry colorizations,and dark grounds serve to reveal fragile drawn lines. The evocation of scans and x-rays is a decoy, familiar symbols and figures are to be discovered under the magnifying glass.

Letters transcribe new languages and play around with typographical scores. Words play off their analogy to pictograms, eloquently borrowing from digital codes, intertwining agitated pencilings with agility.

Like a graphic study of birds, chromatic harmonies borrow from scientific codes to draw actual or dreamt music.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BLURRING READINGS

 

Studio_Krjst_PVDESIGNS_AW1718
Zisser_Textile_Design_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

Lines escape, skid and lose control! Textured or flat, nothing is ever plain. Pencilling is lit up with colour, leaping onto the blank page, impetuously scribbling to sketch out vague landscapes.

 

3_BROUILLER_Anadol_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

Perspective is suggested in tumultuous and infinite movements, like uncertain roads with wide turns.

Drawn lines are tangled up and intertwined to create lively networks that can only be read from a distance.

Sputterings are sketched out like the crackling of laid paper, electromagnetic waves interfere with our perceptions.

 

 

BEING IN THE CLOUDS

 

SEASON_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

 

A pause, a breath of fresh air and space, to approach the almost nothing, shedding the superfluous.

 

0_FLOU_KimberSmith_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

Letting the eyes linger, until one's vision becomes positively blurry. Like an ode to haze and changing states, rich but subtle, random and constantly changing.

 

 

2_FLOU_Schwarzwald_Jaccoud_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

Minimalism is tinged with vapours and gradations, and leads us into imaginary worlds marked by a unique and attractive beauty. Veiled circles powdered with chemical pastels; coloured, vaguely synthetic mists and diffused sprays gently erase contours.

 

 

 

 

1_FLOU_HCBERG_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

Light brightens lines making them barely readable,and blurs the indistinct edges of silhouettes.
Suggested landscapes and common objects in slightly staggered overlays, with uncertain margins and multiple readings.

ESCAPING INTO EXTRAVAGANCE

CAKE_STUDIOS_PVDESIGNS_AW718

Yes to accumulation and fearless combinations, yes to history and the naive, yes to ironic shifts and unrelated assemblies. More is more, anything goes!

 

1_EXTRAVAGANCE_KOZAKI_BENETTO_PPVDESIGNS_AW1718

Creation celebrates polarities, with a naïve and innocent, unusual and sometimes irreverent freedom of expression.

2_EXTRAVAGANCE_MassimoJoseMonaco_DeWitt_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

Figuratives escape into a slightly crazed imaginary world, narratives play with myths and reinterpret symbols.
The artist questions the sphinx, without worrying about misinterpretations or anachronisms.

 

3_EXTRAVAGANCE_OmbelineVandame_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

Pencilled, embroidered, painted with precision folded, fused, inked with glee, composed of everyday objects, stained-glass or motifs, popular icons, historical figures and imaginary heroes,all step boldly inside these fabulous artworks.

4_EXTRAVAGANCE_Landeta_ResatioAdiPutra_PVDESIGNS_AW1718

The decorative plays with mixes of cultures,the East and art brut merge into mad allegorical scenes.
