Exhibition Blandine Roques - Coralie SEIGNEUR ceramist and Sylvie PEYNEAU painter

Cultural, Exhibition in Montauban
  • Two universes that celebrate nature: the lands of Coralie Seigneur and “the wild herbaria” of Sylvie Peyneau.

  • Coralie Seigneur.
    The earth is shaped, pinched, struck, polished, scraped, deformed. The earth is fired twice, three times with the ashes of wood for enamel or impregnated with the carbon of burning plants. Chance has its place, the organization of chance too. This adventure, through the quest for forms and materials, testifies to the elusive need to meet the sensitive from which emerges, from time to time, to my greatest joy, the beauty of things.

    The earth is shaped, pinched, struck, polished, scraped, deformed. The earth is fired twice, three times with the ashes of wood for enamel or impregnated with the carbon of burning plants. Chance has its place, the organization of chance too. This adventure, through the quest for forms and materials, testifies to the elusive need to meet the sensitive from which emerges, from time to time, to my greatest joy, the beauty of things. This is the story of a course of clay, which comes and goes, oscillates and combines use with emotion, according to the desires, according to the moments, quite simply. I like to make unique pieces, accessible to all, useful and aesthetic at the same time. Sometimes just contemplative for the pleasure of the hands and the eyes. The dynamic of creation is constantly irrigated by collective projects such as exhibitions which, based on a theme, generate by the constraint that this imposes, a renewal in the approach. I regularly organize internships in my workshop and this also helps to fuel the dynamic.

    Sylvie Peyneau
    Born in Bordeaux in 1963, Sylvie Peyneau grew up between the forest and the ocean. Her painting never ceases to question the child she was in this oceanic landscape and the imprint it left on her identity as an urban adult.
    It is through a subtle balance between figuration and abstraction, between intimate or monumental format and in the repetition of patterns that this introspection takes place. The series, Silent Gardens (2000), Cailloux sous la neige (2005), and more recently Wild Herbariums, reveal in the cycle of the seasons, the blooms, the variation of light, clues to follow, personal quests to pursue. , paths of life to explore. These initiatory journeys are constantly revived throughout the artist's life by travels which are opportunities to revive his sensory experiences and to identify the materials and textures so particular to his painting. In the series of wild herbaria started after confinement, Sylvie lets herself be fascinated by modest flowers, the poorest herbs, possible doubles, multiplying the angles of approach until she takes sides with them.
