"Colorists draw like nature, their figures are naturally delimited by the harmonious struggle of the colored masses.The pure draftsmen are philosophers and abstractors of quintessence.The colorists are epic poets" Charles Baudelaire - Salon of 1846 - Chapter III: Of the color CONSTANCE LAFONTA Constance Lafonta's artistic practice is at the crossroads of various inspirations and anticipations. Sensitive observer of the world around her, she portrays as a poet the questions specific to this striking modernity. His tables and panels in resin are the result of an affirmed technique and contribute materially to his conception of a spontaneous art. This is a frankness of color facing a partitioned space. The hues are in harmony and recall theatrical motifs where the scenography is equal to the tone, that the appearance exerted. Furniture becomes art and art is used for furniture. VLADIMIR BALASANYAN The fusion of architecture and art is the main subject of Vladimir Balasanyan's work. What are the points of intersection of these two disciplines? How does the atmosphere of a particular space reveal itself? The question of scale, whether it is an architectural detail or a landscape, is something that interests him as well. He questions the link between these spaces of architecture: traditional and classical, futuristic and environmental. His work is at the epicenter of this reflection between these different eras, giving him the opportunity to focus on things specifically represented in analogy or in contradiction with new forms and new spaces.
