What if all the art of gallery owners was to unite universes in a unity of time and place and to align the stars? It is this magic, combined with great benevolence, that Francine Page achieves from one exhibition to the next in her “Petite galerie” in Granges-Aumontzey, a place that counts in the Vosges cultural landscape.
For this summer, this aesthete had the flair to bring together three artists: Sabine Cauvez, Sylvie Coupé-Thouron and Philippe Flesh in an exhibition judiciously called “Résonances”, a title that sums up all the ambition and philosophy of the place.
Sylvie Coupé-Thouron offers paintings. “The human in the world around him is at the center of my artistic questioning”, she explains. “The inexorable passage of time, the quest for balance between what we are and what is, dualities and adversity, are all questions to which neither painting, nor engraving, nor any form of expression artistic, cannot answer in an irrefutable or formal way… Each of us can however find there, according to his own look, a real meaning, a resonance, a window on his inner universe. »
“The viewer sees what is painted and hears what is told”
For Philippe Flesh, “every image tells a story. The reverse would unnecessarily complicate the artist’s task, for words quickly submit to thought. The image that the painter creates occurs without apparent reason, adapts to all chances. It is accompanied by its non-image which says nothing but remains present whatever we do.
The primordial, the primitive are found in the figure which becomes the support of a meditation, of an encounter: a magic which dates from the night of the caves with their walls notched with visions. The viewer sees what is painted and perhaps hears what is being said: all is not lost then. »
As for Sabine Cauvez, she is above all known for her creations of tissue paper lamps with shapes and diaphanous energy. At the same time, she develops a work of sculpture using wire, boxes and installations made of salvaged objects. Considered in the form of a sentimental museum, the artist flirts with raw art, in a very poetic work, ritual as one might wish, which questions his psyche, his scars and seeks to invoke the angels.
The exhibition is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday until August 21, from 2:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., rue Ancel Seitz in Granges-Aumontzey. Admission is free.
