"Claire Deniau’s artworks are based
“Claire Deniau’s artworks are based on the transparency and purity of the mineral lenses, which, placed in front of a painting, bring a new dimension due to the magnifying, deforming or narrowing effect they produce. The viewer is invited to immerse into the works through the prism of special lenses to admire the smallest details and feel the emotions caused by the paintings fusion of colors, materiality and gesture; an invitation to trigger the imaginary.
Painting is at the heart of Claire Deniau’s practice. Her fascination stands from the subtle balance created between the presence of the painting’s materiality, and its unpredictable emotional effect.
The artist has carefully developed her own technique: the handling of the canvas allows an interplay of textures, which often replaces the brushwork. The evanescent strokes and layers, cracks, scraped impasto, colour experimentation, everything is played out to create this particular space between the visible and the invisible. Claire Deniau intentionally plays with the relationship between the trio painter/painting/ viewer. This exhibition is a reaction against the viewer’s disconnection from a physical interaction.
