Exposition : L’air du Temps - C. Collec

Cultural, Exhibition, Arts and crafts, Visual/graphic arts, Painting in Sainte-Maxime
  • Retrospective exhibition of C. COLLEC's artistic career. The artist shares her questions and her experiences to encourage us to observe and deduce things.
    The uncompromising aestheticism serves the strength of each person's imagination.

    C COLLEC lives and works between the sea and the mountains, between Sainte-Maxime (Var) and Tartonne (Alpes de Haute Provence). Born in Brittany in 1962, after studying biology, nursing and a professional life interrupted by health problems, she studied drawing, painting, art history and aesthetic analysis of works of art at the fine arts schools of Quimper, Angoulême, Toulon and Marseille.

    Her plastic dialectic is very eclectic: painting, collages, ink, pencils, canvases, paper, cardboard, use of photography, anything she can get her hands on, recover, recycle, remake...

    She works with TIME, leaving room for the imagination of each individual... not everything needs to be said... Always on the edge of an in-between, inside out, visible invisible, outside time, it's an intellectual approach, a perpetual search.

    C. COLLEC tells us: "to always go towards the unknown, to leave behind knowledge in order to find it again, to go further and not to languish in what we have", referring to Proust: "there is always the violence of a sign that forces us to seek, that takes away our peace...", Paul Eluard: "there is always the violence of a sign that forces us to seek, that takes away our peace...". ...", Paul Eluard: "the imagination has no instinct to imitate, it is the source and the torrent that we do not go back up" and joins Henri-David Thoreau: "what is in front of us and what we leave behind, this is little compared to what is in us. And when we bring into the world what has been sleeping inside us, miracles happen".
