The summer season is beautiful and well underway in Saint-Emilion ! As the grapes ripen under the bright sun, let's stop at a talented local artist that the Union de Producteurs de Saint-Emilion is pleased to welcome for the second time to the Galerie du Caveau: Karen Laurent-Gaillard. An exhibition to be discovered until July 31st included.
After a degree in visual arts at the University of Bordeaux, Karen, a native of Libourne, works as an animator and visual artist in schools. A hard worker, she still finds time to create in her studio. His sculptures, paintings and drawings speak of the body, of everything that crosses it and makes it "the being in movement"; dancing, fragile, torn apart or voluptuous but still very much alive, a perpetual pas de deux between the other and oneself. From feminine to masculine, from agreement to disagreement, between fusion and separation, this is the quest for balance.
Karen has already exhibited at the Galerie du Caveau in 2015. This new exhibition presents us with works that provoke emotions, fear and anger in us, but everything is refined and poetic. A feeling of lightness above a deep abyss. There is, in his exhibition, a magical or fantastic and yet realistic side. It's darkly beautiful!
Opening on Wednesday, July 3rd from 6:30 pm at the Galerie du Caveau.
