Original painting, unique piece by Sophie Lormeau In the series "Portrait lyrique", here is the imaginary portrait with flies, of a dreamer wearing a thousand eyes. Evanescent young woman with sleepy eyes, torn between dream and melancholy. The fly, usually represented by a small round spot to represent the small piece of black taffeta that women used to put on their skin to bring out its whiteness, I have chosen, here, to blur the tracks. To confuse the spectator by sticking in relief two old reproductions of these annoying, even repulsive insects. These intriguing winged flies are at the heart of J.P. Sartre's theatrical "huis clos" of the same title, where they symbolize remorse and personify tyranny. Mixed technique (acrylic paint, pencil, collage and pastel) on magazine paper, with deliberately torn edges, highlighted in a white wooden display case frame. Painting signed lower right. Certificate of authenticity signed on the back.

Let the imagination and the unknown run wild. Create by association of ideas. Explore new memories. Index of flowered portraits and uprooted houses, chimeras of moments of emotions. A colourful evocation of the optimism inherent in the human being who sees himself blooming again while oscillating with his melancholy. Through the symbolism of plants and mythological winks, Sophie Lormeau evokes the rebirth of beings. The hope of sweetness after the winters that we are going through. This quest for "flowering again" is often linked to these places of hibernation represented by uprooted houses, roaming, aerial and ancestral dwellings, places of memory of our wonders and disenchantment; mysterious beauties inviting us to travel towards other utopias. An initiatory journey? In search of the emotional, lively and sensitive trait, the artist transcends his imaginary portraits, halfway between two shores, on backgrounds detached from any reality such as malicious boxes or Pandora’s boxes. Sophie Lormeau seeks to restore wings to our wonder, from lightness to inner tragedies.
