Benetto Eric

Eric Benetto was born in 1972. When he came across a poster for an exhibition of works by the miner and visionary artist Augustin Lesage in 1989, he instinctively grasped that this would be a way for him to draw on his own meditative practice to shape and transmit his visions. His encounter with Abbé Coutant, who became a painter at the prompting of Gaston Chaissac, confirmed him in his belief that he, too, belonged to the same artistic family. He continued drawing and, between trips to India, worked at a variety of jobs, from mending roads and carrying out opinion polls by telephone to guarding a chemical plant. His works, suffused with subdued mysticism, are fascinating in their constant hesitation between the surface form of a stain and the canon of voices chanting the bewitching melody of his Cosmic Songs and Love Songs.

Bordeau Anastassia

Bordeau Anastassia

Anastassia Bordeau was born in Moscow in 1979. She lives and works in Paris where she graduated from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in 2003 (Ateliers Vincent Bioulès and Pat Andrea).
Anastassia Bordeau has produced a style that refuses the triviality born of routine, the myopia that triggers the habitual or a context that simply adheres to sterotype. This is why her scenes are so often nocturnal, or represent spaces that, by their uniqueness, seem enclosed. For night is the time when logic is forgotten or absent, where imagination chases dreams, where the impossible no longer applies, where opposites meet in improbable circumstances, and where the depth of meaning is revealed. The enclosed space, as if a night cut off from the world, thus forms its own universe.
These works are centered on actions in progress—benevolent actions, or anecdotal, but in which the enjoyment and anxiety of living are fully mixed—in indefinite expectation, evidently actions suspended as to the question of why, or to where, we are heading.
The influence of the teachings of modern painting, of that of Hopper in particular, or even of surrealist views in that they solicit the imaginary and suggest emotions beyond images—or even of Duchamp—is willingly represented, and which, allied often to a discreet humorous dimension, allows the artist to affirm her engagement to continuity.
For over a decade Anastassia Bordeau has in her painting alternated and intertwined urban night spaces—spaces almost closed, mostly underground, and mainly places of circulation—as well as nudes or undressed bodies, such scenes quite often composed of advertising imagery. By Jean-Paul Blanchet.
