CONVULSIVE BEAUTY

"Beauty will be convulsive or will not be at all"
André Breton 

Upsetting, nasty, frightening flowers. A deconstructed, aggressive, iconoclastic, sleazy, ambiguous, imperfect beauty.

Shattered, deformed, shaken, mistreated, lacerated materials.

 

 

 

 

 

 

PRECARIOUS BEAUTY

 "The forms disappeared and were no more than a dream"
Charles Baudelaire

An evanescent, unstable beauty, ready to disappear in a cloud of sand. Flowers are in suspended animation, a sublime instant, between magnificence and disappearance. It brings to mind the naive primitives of Miquel Barcelò, the outlines of the flowers drawn in charcoal, and the impossible bouquets of Herman De Vries.
Materials are crumbly, unstable, soft to the touch or slightly granular,sandy.

 

 

 

 

 

SUBSIDIARY BEAUTY

"- True beauty is so particular, so new, that we are unable to recognise it"
Marcel Proust

A kitsch delicacy evocative of Jacques Tati. The 1950s and 1970s combine, creating a borderline aesthetic. 

A joyfully shabbiness, where plastic and PVC are hyper luxurious, where that crumpled vinyl of an indefinable colour is in fact dipped lamb...

 

 

 

 

 

 

BROODING BEAUTY 

"Do you come from Heaven or rise from the abyss"
Charles Baudelaire 

 

Magnificent flowers, overly-radiant, powerful fragrances,

wild and mystical romanticism. Created by the spirit world, under shamanic influence, colours and materials become one, violent and bewitching.

Materials are rich and swollen with sap, gleaming and voluminous. Materials are wild and full.Summer suede,bird feathers, matt reptiles, wrinkled buffalo.

Colours

CONVULSIVE BEAUTY

Colours that go against the grain, dissonant, paradoxical, chaotic :
wonky yellow, raucous pink, fighting green, transgender blue.

PRECARIOUS BEAUTY

We see glimpses of fragile, transparent colours, in suspension.
Colours of tanned skin, of transparent water, of stones polished by the desert winds.

SUBSIDIARY BEAUTY

Acidic, artificial and assonant colours,
blended in a milk-shake.

BROODING BEAUTY

Deep colours. Raw red, crushed red, burnt brown,
solarized white, mediumistic black shamanic or.
