"A young soldier, mouth open, bare head/neck in the cool blue watercress/sleeps; he is lying in the grass, under the naked/pale in his green bed where the light is raining. (...)Perfume doesn't make his nostrils shiver/ He sleeps in the sun with his hand on his chest/ Tranquil. It has two red holes on the right side. "Arthur Rimbaud The "Dormeur du Val" is a work in Indian ink and acrylic, which pays homage to Arthur Rimbaud's eponymous poem. She mixes powerful colours with the "caviar ink" gradation technique developed by the painter. The painting resembles a tattoo on paint, around the soldier lying in the grass. The work is sold framed.

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. »
