Explorations on the theme of the house

A house… just to evoke its name is enough to adorn it with all kinds of meanings.
It is first of all a roof for those who do not have one, a refuge to isolate oneself from the world, a place to recharge one’s batteries, to relax, a cozy nest to curl up in, an anchor oneself, a place to live.

But it’s not just humans who are in favor. Birds, in particular (another theme close to my heart), appreciate the small houses in the trees we offer them.
All this combined has inspired these few works (monotype prints, 3D collages, mixed media)… with more to come.

Art in a box

I’ve always loved collages, mixing objects and materials, assembling elements that respond to each other and tell a story. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been collecting anything and everything that might inspire me to create flat or voluminous compositions.
Art in a box is what Joseph Cornell practiced in the early 20th century. This American artist, sculptor and experimental film-maker was a precursor of assemblage, with a particular penchant for birds. And his work remains a source of inspiration. In his own way, I created this showcase from an A4 frame, air navigation maps – thanks to Sylvie (she will recognize herself) for these inspiring documents – vintage images of birds that I re-colored, feathers collected in the wild, natural berries treated to retain their color and a DMC embroidery thread chart.
