This collage/ink drawing is the first in the totem pole series. He pays tribute to the film "Le Testament d’Orphée" directed by Jean Cocteau, through a cubist and surrealist representation of Orphée, the prince of poets. We find there the lyre and the symbol of the song dear to Gwendoline Finaz de Villaine, Orpheus becoming an avatar of the artist, fond of the Roaring Twenties period and his rewriting of myths. This totem pole does not look back, contrary to its legend; it is confident and optimistic. It symbolizes modern art, literature and poetry.

It was made with a brush and smoke-black Chinese ink, then glued on a brown satin background highlighted by a natural wooden frame.

Gwendoline Finaz de Villaine is a writer, singer and painter. A former student of Radio France, Sciences Po Paris and HEC, she has worked with Michel Fugain, Elie Chouraqui, Roger Louret and Jean-Claude Camus. She has sung at Folies Bergère, Le Zénith, for M6, France Télévisions and in several musicals in Paris.

At the same time, she wrote a historical and fantastic three-volume saga, "Les Brumes de Grandville", and published a fourth novel in January 2019, "De poudre, de cendre et d’or", by French Pulp Éditions. His painting is a paper music, influenced by his stage experience, cubism, surrealism and African art.

Passionate about the 1920s period, she likes to conversate her "unconscious in the open air" with totems in Indian ink and jugs dancing; we find the influence of Cocteau, Picasso, Gio Ponti and the African masks that are dear to her.

"I never know where a painting will take me and I am always surprised by the final result, which appears before my eyes as a premonition, a message from the afterlife. »

"In my life, I have always been in search of freedom, and the most absolute freedom is painting. »

"I am fascinated by the masks and the magical charge of African art. »
