Chloé Tiravy claims a generous painting, and defends her right to narration, to feeling, to poetry. She sees her studio as the stage of a theater. She constructs her paintings there by posing strangers whom she disguises and directs. As a scenographer, she orchestrates the highlighting and choreography of the bodies.
In her paintings, she confronts young adults with secular objects, resurgences of history, the lyricism of nature, and thus questions the relationship of our own generation to its cultural heritage and to the landscape. The staging of majesty, the praise of androgynous beauty, the exaltation of new forms of femininity and masculinity, the restitution of dignity, are the cross-cutting issues of this painting, both contemporary and romantic.
