ANNE DE NANTEUIL

Her two works «Untitled» stack seduction and danger. On the one hand there is the seduction of a image polished in its execution; on the other hand, the object apparently calm forces the body and refers to the absolute defense, today’s necessity.
A superimposing of transparency and opacity, of heat and cold… The depiction is violent, the gesture is channeled, the violence under control. Both sensual and expressive, liberating and mortuary, the shadings are delicate and changing depending on the direction of the look and body considering the work. The works of Anne de Nanteuil do not gainsay what Robert Motherwell wrote: «it feels like a wonderful thing when you realize that the medium can, by itself, thrill you».
