Catherine Cornec has an artistic training, and began her career as a mosaic. She quickly worked as a master's painting copyist for a Parisian gallery. This collaboration lasted 6 years and ended in 2003, when Catherine Cornec decided to devote herself entirely to painting.
The artist spent several years locked in her studio before showing, to the public, her world. From her excellent technique will be born female characters, essentially staggered colored. The artist invites us into a world where humor and color could make us forget for a moment the depths of the subjects and the severity of personalities. Over the years Catherine Cornec presents a complex character, free, which highlights a sensitivity that is close to us.

I have known Catherine Cornec's work for many years, she was introduced to me by a mutual friend. Intrigued by her world and captivated by her technique, this Britain artist told me stories through her works. When the gallery opened in 2009, Catherine was already one of the artists. Catherine Cornec is a painter but not only, Catherine is passionate about writing and reads a lot. The characters, the situations she encounters, generally creates female characters, who are close to illustrious characters. "In her bubble" could reveal a part of his personality, the artist is full of life but isolated in her creations, a "head to head" that gives birth to funny and complex works. Since 2009 her work has undergone several changes,it marks different periods of life. We always discover with great pleasure her universe.
Delicate, vibrant, powerful, Ewa Hauton's work won't leave anyone indifferent.

After obtaining a diploma of Artistic Director in Advertising, she began an activity of graphic designer, visual artsits, and scenographer, while begining an artistic carrer, painting and sculpting.
For more than 10years, she has devoted herself exclusively ro painting. Her encounter with a choreographer will determine the direction of her work towards movement, as a profound representation of life.
Her work focuses on the body, especially the women's curves. Between ink and oil paint,, Ewa gets rid of the superfluous of forms and materials. She gives life to movement, with accuracy and skill.
On her ink works, a touch of color comes to pierce the black and white, like a geyser of life that brings us back to the essential. The large scales allow her a freedom of action that contributes to thte blossoming of her work, mixing painting and drawing.
Ewa's work, like an oscillating mirage, touches us with a subtle sensibility, and leaves us fascinated in front of such transparency.
the gallery's words
We discovered the paintings of Ewa Hauton through a colleague in 2016. Interpelled by her "gesture" we began to follow her work and had the pleasure of presenting her first exhibition in June 2016 following many trades. In 2018 I had the pleasure of finally getting to know her and I could appreciate her generosity, her empathy and her kindness. Ewa corresponded in every way to what I felt in front of one of her painting. Free, curious, open, she continues to perfect her artistic work. Abstraction, figuration, movement, Ewa has created a recognizable artistic identity.

The gallery's words
An unforgettable encounter!
Kyliss, then 20 years old, sent us by email a presentation of her work. She then made drawings on A4 format. I was seized by the drawings of this young woman. An unusual technical mastery. We then decided to keep in touch and she regularly sent me her drawings by e-mail. A few months later, Kyliss came to Bordeaux and we met, we watched together her drawings, drafts and all she could achieve. Unaware of her abilities, this young woman has agreed to test herself on a large format. Some time later I received a photo of the work that foreshadowed the full potential of this young artist.
We agreed to schedule an exhibition and Kyliss worked tirelessly for more than a year to create the exhibition's drawings. The public was not mistaken, the first exhibition was a real success. Since then, this young artist has been gaining in sensitivity and technicality. I did not know how she could surprise me yet, and yet each piece surpasses what we can imagine.
