The 6 Painters and Sculptors presented by Art-Trope at the Paris Contemporary Art Show 

Selected to participate in the 18th edition of the Paris Contemporary Art Show by YIA Art Fair, Art-Trope has chose 6 of the Artists in its community with an emphasis on Painters and Sculptors. Each of them offers a vision of their inner world and the one that surrounds them to the viewer to better invite him or her to create his or her own story.

Carolina Alfonso – Painter

Carolina Alfonso’s paintings offer a visual poetry based on thought, feeling, and memory. They carry a certain awareness related to the structure of things she can feel around and within her. Each of her paintings highlights an instinctual relationship to nature. She looks for an identity connected to natural forces that constitute her understanding of organic life as a phenomenon that moves perpetually through time and space. Her paintings suggest a connection to the earth where the physical mental self relates to the sun, moon, and fertility cycles.

Dominique Meunier – Painter

Aligning with the Impressionist style, Dominique Meunier made landscapes his main theme. He invites us to explore the vibrant, symbolic and bright side of nature to urge us to protect it. Attentive to the passage of time, to the subtle modulations of light, he is particularly interested in translating transient and impalpable natural phenomena. He is the painter of impermanence.

Fanou Montel – Painter

The drawing, then the ink very quickly, were the vectors of Fanou Montel‘s sensitivity of child and teenager. When painting imposed itself on her, a little later, she figuratively tried to translate her emotions. Nudes, portraits, quantities of landscapes… The keys appeared more and more abstract… Abstraction has become, for some years now, the tool of his creative liberation.

Florence Sartori – Sculptor

Florence Sartori placed Woman at the center of her aesthetic statement. Her specific approach is resolutely a hymn to life, and arouses emotion, thanks to timeless feminine figures. Flourished, warrior, fragile, or affirmed Woman, for Florence Sartori, the Woman figure is both singular and plural.Very inspired by the body in Dance, she gives a special place to the representation of the feminine body in its instep, tension and stretching. Fascinated by the body ease which can take a balanced, symmetrical, sensual and sometimes geometric form, it seeks to enhance the dynamics, the energy, the vitality of the body in motion, and to better highlight its freedom.

Mireille Lopez – Painter

Following events and meetings, Mireille Lopez gave free rein to her desire to express herself through abstract painting. It began with watercolors then very quickly in acrylic paint on canvas. She likes to discover textures, supports and techniques by herself and she started to paint but also to draw. As her work progresses, the colors are more displayed, more vivid and the canvases bigger. Her favorite format is the one square meter canvas. The origin of each of her paint is an emotion, a moment of life or a state of mind.

Zoé B – Peintre

Through the specific use of dripping which results in the body fragmentation, Zoé B takes us to the other side of the mirror, where life is only movement, impermanence and unpredictability. Her bodies dance, jump, explode and let go, therefore unveiling the impetuosity of movements which are the core of any life. Combining technical accuracy and spontaneity, Zoé B’s Artworks are in between figurative and abstract Art in which the characters seem to dissolve themselves, disappearing and inviting us to let go in an unrestricted agreement to the movements of life that animate us, go through us and inexorably shape us.
