All galleries and institutions members of the association open their doors to a wider public on the occasion of the weekend ArtCarouge taking place on Saturday 2 and on Sunday 3 March 2024. Please join us for the opening days from 11 am to 5 pm. Anne Pantillon will be present.
Salon Vert is delighted to welcome Anne Pantillon, a Lausanne-based visual artist from La Chaux-de-Fonds, who is exhibiting her recent acrylic and egg tempera works, as well as a few engravings.
Hailing from a musical background, through her family and her training as a violinist, Anne Pantillon came into the fine arts with a sense that a new area of freedom was opening up for her. That being said, neither music nor dance have disappeared. Indeed, they infuse her painting to such an extent that her work is built by listening to sound banks and painting on the floor using her whole body – arms, elbows, and hands, whose movements are shaped by the sound vibrations. One such example is the series entitled Oscillography, echoing Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin. But it is also the sounds of nature, of the wind and sea, which – like a breath – inform her practice.
In 2020, at the height of the pandemic, the artist took up painting again. From the confines of her studio, she observed the landscape through the window. This retreat gave rise to the Intérieur(s) series, a return to figurative painting in very large-scale formats, blending nature and architecture in spaces reconstituted by thought and the imagination.
