Body art

October 11, 2018

There’s a certain painting that I’m drawn to –– the meeting of simple forms in strong colours on a canvas –– that I’ve seen many variations on of late. But there’s something about French artist, Caroline Denervaud‘s work that stands out. AnOther Magazine, describes her paintings as a “meta millefeuille” which I find so apt. “Few can claim the truly tactile relationship that Denervaud explores within her work. Sheathing the floor of her studio with swathes of paper, and combining dance and movement with the application of pen or paint, Denervaud creates shapes that offer a direct trace of her movements.” Her process is fascinating and idiosyncratic, and that may be what we feel in her paintings, and what distinguishes them from others.
