Lauren Coullard’s painting germinates and feeds itself into a systematic short circuit between abstraction and figuration, mythology and fiction. Coullard imposes confidently and proudly an anachronistic transfiguration of the present, allowing her characters—mostly female—to rise from her unstoppable desire to snatch light from the canvas. (F. Santacroce)
Ellande Jaureguiberry's volumes—soft without being flabby—always bear marks, deliberate bruises that excite their superficiality. Clinical dirtying up harmonizes therapeutic landscapes of reliefs that are both geographical and physiological, running over hill and membrane. All evoke synthetic horizons, territories of tenderness where beatitude reigns over lesions. A nirvana. (J.Riff)
