  • DELAGE Nicolas
    Nicolas Delage is a contemporary visual artist born in 1986 in Périgueux, Dordogne. With a mother who is a painter, he has been immersed in art very soon, deeply attracted by drawing and figurative representations. On his return from his trip to New Zealand, he became a professional in art furniture and marketed his creations through specialized shows.
    What is less known is that Nicolas was also a hot air balloon pilot for several years and that this experience combined with his taste for metal was the trigger / beginning.
    While he was in his workshop, equipped with his paint cans, he began to create paintings on steel sheets. Four years later, he started to work with the material itself and with the help of an excavator, he started to compress and crush a sheet of metal, then lacquered it in black.
    This is the beginning of a beautiful story, Nicolas is very much inspired by nature and its glow that he could admire during his paramotor flights. He likes to reproduce the shapes, the movements and the lights of his environment. He nourishes the will to ally his works to natural elements, in an original and aesthetic contrast. Capturing the present moment is the message that comes from his artistic achievements / creations.
     Since that day, Nicolas Delage has never stopped using steel as his favorite material. Why this singular choice? First of all, because he defines himself as a Cartesian artist, claiming an extravagant and rebellious art. But also because he transmutes this cold and hard material into a softer and more tender one. His work highlights something between a form of power and sublimation.

    The words of the gallery

    An email, a call, a visit, pegs in the wall and in less time than it takes to say it Nicolas Delage was part of the artists of the gallery! A sincere, passionate and determined artist who offers me to discover an amazing and powerful work. The steel disappears in the softness of the folds without ever making us forget its strength, that’s the magic trick of Nicolas. I was captivated by the reliefs and the play of light, the shadows that sometimes consolidate the depth of the past, the fluidity of these contemporary and majestic works / masterpieces.
  • K-ARTY
    Born in Provence the year the first man set foot on the moon, K-Arty has an atypical artistic career ...
    If capturing the moment is the photographer's own, the choice of this moment, of this light, the way of seeing or staging the elements, are all reflections of his personality. And at all stages of the creation of an image, from triggering to its presentation, the image will have woven into
    watermark all the emotions of its author. K-Arty's works are at the crossroads of two worlds, where the eye of the photographer brings the
    matter to his imagination. He likes to surprise, he likes to surprise himself!
    His unique and quirky style skilfully stages characters, known or not, in abandoned places, mixing humor and derision, but always with great sensitivity.

    Imagine ...
    Imagine a future where humans have disappeared from the face of the Earth. A planet which would still keep the traces of its inhabitants, and that one, or rather “a” visitor, let us call Louisa, seizes this world and discovers with astonishment and curiosity the heritage of these funny humans.
    Humanity 2.0 is on the move ...

    The gallery's words

    I met K-Arty at a trade show in October 2020. A great meeting that allowed me to enter his world. At first glance seduced by the quality of the graphics and the references of the subjects treated, he invited me to discover another way of looking at his work. K-arty selects the places, works the characters, scenarios and encodes his works. Only a careful reading will reveal the intention of the artist. If his works make you smile, they also offer a reflection on today's society. I rarely represent the photo but here there is an artistic work of composition that seduced me. K-Arty is a sensitive, generous and passionate person, everything I needed to finish convincing me!

  • PIVETEAUD Dominique

    Dominique PIVETEAUD, is a sculptor born in paris in 1959, and he worked for many years in Berlin. Very quickly, he favors sharing workshops at homes, in community and enriches the contact with other artists. Author of numerous publications in "the School of Recreation", his writings are now reference to the issue of the teaching of literature. This reflection on the relationship with the literary and more broadly cultural echoes the questions running through his plastic work, especially when endorsed the words of Bernard Charlot and definies the human condition as "entering a world where humans are in the form of men and all that humans have built previously". By this way of thinking humans, it is fully in the social space and it is natural in the urban environnement that Dominique Piveteaud draws its "matter". The artist takes the bitten by rust, zinc plates used, the son of twisted iron and other materials impregnated with time and history that assembled by successive adjustements irons. Consideration of the artist for this memory leads to revisit these fragments dedicated disposal to give their lives in his work.

    The gallery's words

    I discovered the works of Dominique Piveteaud during an exhibition by a colleague. When he stopped his activity he offered me to represent Dominique's artworks. I then met Dominique, a reserved, posed artist who talks about his work with a lot of humility, the relationship between the work and the artist is undeniable. We have been working together for a number of years and I always discover with pleasure the work of memory, material and composition.
