In this exhibition, Florence Burt Riley is showcasing « The field of possibilities or the oxymoron painting », her newest creations swinging between severity and levity, darkness and light, offering us almost monochrome paintings or some with an explosion of colours and shapes.
She proceeds by successive glidings, as an answer to a near monomaniacal tendency for series. The gesture is spontaneous and the dynamic is expressive.
The viewer has to slowly tame the paintings, slipping on their surface, accepting them in a non-judgmental way, touching them with the eyes, without distance, without their perception being cloaked by fear. Daring to lose yourself, to run back and forth, to think outside the box for a, sometimes abyssa.
Visit the Bastide of Hameau de Baux until 3 January 2018 to discover this exhibition and sale.
