The Works.

Despite her classic education her art is resolutely contemporary.

Drawing and painting is a passion that never left Lut and it’s with constant renewed energy and vision that she explores unbeaten paths. In her work she mixes techniques and mediums.

She makes bas-reliefs, paints or draws with ample, strong and harmonious movements.

She uses charcoal and includes in her works techniques that escapes the control of her leading hand, thus reflecting the incertitude of our daily life.

Her architectural mind-setting reflects in the way she builds her works, often with underlying geometrical patterns and by the use of construction materials. She pays great attention to perspectives and optical effects.

She claims her work is a reflection and expression of her inner self, showing ordered anarchy in a confined environment

Florence Cairo

Réflexion / Réfractions

Florencia Cairo was born in Argentina in 1972, studying the Fine-Arts at the Universad Nacional de La Plata. She immigrated to Europe in 1992, where she began her career as a chef, food-stylist and scenographer. Living and working in Geneva, London ans Paris. She moved 10 years ago to live in SW France.
the contemporary lines and the monochrome palette all reflect the understated beauty of her work and desire to speak about the influences of pure forms.
All of these aspects of her career to date have followed the same sensibility which she now applies to her chosen medium of painting. Cairo is inspired by chance, and the underlying subtleties involved in creating and handling paint arise despite her will.
The works in this exhibition are a vital paring down of the image, bare, exposed, and uncompromising. They are fiercely driven by a need to communicate her curiosity to return the basics and her creative philosophy of opposites. strength versus fragility. Nothing more nothing less.

EXHIBITION : JULY-SEPTEMBER 2014

Maarten Stuer

Né à Anvers, en terre flamande, Maarten Stuer  suit les cours de l’école des Beaux-Arts de sa ville où il se spécialise dans les arts graphiques, le dessin, la lithographie.
Au contact de la nature, face au paysage de vallons et de prairies, Maarten se consacre désormais à l’argile et au modelage. Peu à peu, il en découvre les potentialités, en invente les usages, fabrique les outils qui sont nécessaires aux techniques qu’il met en œuvre.

“Les processus naturels m’inspirent et me passionnent”, confie le plasticien belge installé dans le Gers. Ici, il n’est pas question de faire œuvre, de se différentier. “Je cherche au contraire une appartenance”, explique-t-il. Toutes les pièces sont conçues pour pouvoir être installées dans des environnements naturels. Le matériau est une argile très résistante. Maarten Stuer y veille, n’hésitant pas à faire subir à la terre des chocs thermiques répétés pour s’assurer de sa résistance au gel. Travaillée en feuille, la forme est souvent perforée. “Les trous visent à rendre les sculptures un peu immatérielles. A l’image de cette vie naturelle qui est quelque chose de très tangible, et en même temps fugace”. 

EXHIBITION : APRIL-JULY 2014
