Chasser le naturel
2 March 2019 - 27 April 2019
Vernissage : Saturday 2 et Sunday 3 March on the occasion of collective openings of ArtCarouge from 11 am to 5 pm. The artist is present.
Isabelle Ménéan is inspired by ancient botanical prints and their elements of excess—microscopic precision, exaggeration of movement, and saturation of color—which are meant to reproduce nature as intricately as possible, but which end up giving the drawn plants a studied and strangely artificial aspect. These painted drawings or engravings evoke the exploratory travels and exotic dreams of a world which was not yet entirely mapped or defined.
