"L'Équilibriste" is a work in Indian ink and acrylic paint, inspired by the world of the circus, the Japanese aesthetic and Cubism. It embodies this subtle acrobatic game that oscillates between grace, strength and discipline. Developed according to the technique known as "caviar ink", it spreads out in multiple abstract and circus-like details on the paper, in organic waves and small black geometric grains. Meticulous and spectacular, the work resembles an aquatic dive overflown by a weightless character, who swings on a poetic trapeze. Between water and sky, "L'Équilibriste" is a work initially conceived to decorate one of the vats of the Chai Les Carmes Haut-Brion designed by Philippe Starck, in Bordeaux. Sprinkled with mysterious details and bubbles in the rainbow colours so dear to the artist, it is a tribute to the esoteric qualities of wine.

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. »
