To Be a Woman
Every day, I see women gain more dignity than the world allows, but every day I also see the world
take away more women's rights.
This solo exhibit To Be a Woman is a presentation of my recent work. It gathers different
expressions; paintings, stand-alone sculptures, wall sculptures and slabs challenge the viewer to
reflect on what place women have today.
Looking at my paintings you can imagine a representation of how elements of different shapes, sizes
and colors are communicating, living in proximity to each other within a certain framework. Using
high pigmented extra fine vinyl acrylic paint, I give each color a value of its own.
In the Osmosis Series the harmony between the stronger and lighter colors seems to be reached
forming their own frame.
In the Exchange Series the two colors have a very defined channel of communication.
The fragility and porous quality of raw clay I use in my sculptures remind us how we can be
affected by outside adversity, how we can easily break.
Raw clay is the perfect humble medium that possesses the same quality as a woman. It does not need
to be glazed, does not need artifice to De relevant.
The air drying quality of raw clay allows other material to be incorporated to create expressive and
provocative sculptures. The restrains are omnipresent.
The Stacking Rocks, the raw clay slabs, are laid in a free peaceful arrangement attached to the
background by a movable Velcro tape.
Whar does if mean Re woman.
Sei Matsushita was born and raised in Japan.
Her youth took place in an urban environment where the mass consumption was omnipresent.
Living in France since 15 years, she develops a singular aesthetic centered on the question of the animal and its becoming among humans.
Without renouncing configuration, she works with several materials, including pigments, acrylic and Chinese ink.
Originally from the North East of England, William is now based in Paris.
He uses mix of digital and analogue techniques to create snapshots of urban spaces.
Creating images primarily using alternative processes allows William to experiment with different aesthetics, making each print unique.
His monochromatic images bring a timeless air to the subject of urban spaces.
