Anne Geoffroy's painstakingly rendered drawings and sculptures evoke her lost childhood, and suggest a cumbersome family legacy laden with secrets. In search of an identity, Geoffrey questions how and what we transmit to future generations. She refers to some of her drawings as "les Fantômes," or the ghosts, and to some of her sculptures as "les Héritières," the heiresses. These pieces have a haunted quality, and carry the weight of her own past and that of her family.
Isabel Brito-Farre, a native Spanish artist who lived in New York but recently moved back to Spain, makes stitched drawings of Americana. When she first came to the United States, she had never seen a hot dog machine or hanging traffic lights; she had never experienced a laundromat or the American flag. She felt as though she would never completely fit in or understand American culture, and created the word "Anostalgia," or "sans nostalgia," to describe this feeling. To her surprise, Brito-Farre has grown to feel as though some of the objects she depicts in her "Anostalgia" series are now part of her, too.
ElleaimeNY's Blog is the result of the homework Laurence Neron-Bancel does to schedule her visits in cities around the world and during international artfairs, get inspiration for her collages; keep records of artists; an incomplete and arbitrary guide of events in and around Westchester, New York and elsewhere. It is less public than facebook and used as tool for LMCollage and LM Studio, the New artist's residency program just recently launched in Hyeres France If there's an event you'd like considered for inclusion, send your announcement to Laurenceneronbancel@gmail.com
There is no such thing as good painting about nothing.+ I’m not an abstractionist. I’m not interested in the relationship of color or form or anything else. I’m interested only in expressing basic human emotions: tragedy, ecstasy, doom, and so on.Mark ROTHKO
