Visages de Laques is an experimental work through which the traditional kanshitsu technique, which consists of giving shape to an object by stiffening a core of tissue with lacquer, is used with a new material: hair. Used as a textile fibre, the lacquer gives it shape, covers and hardens it while asserting its lightness and elegance. Evoking an atmosphere that is at once chimerical, sepulchral and erotic, the work challenges the viewer with its unexpected shapes and materials, its deep organic colours and animal materials. The work is composed of hand-woven synthetic blond hair, lacquered according to the traditional technique of Vernis Martin. The lacquer and its Meudon white primer stiffen the hair fabric. The inlay of tints brings colour and depth. Inspired by Maison Martin Margiela, the artist is interested in the idea of identity. Hair, and its symbolism, refers to a social, cultural and ethnic form. Hair identifies the wearer. The work is sold with its black metal base.

Célia Debras draws inspiration from traditional Japanese and French lacquer techniques to create her works. She rethinks the ways in which this thousand-year-old craft is developed to create new aesthetics. She lets the material express itself, creating her own motifs, her random landscapes. These new creative processes give rise to unique, authentic and original mural and sculptural works. Depth, brilliance, matt, black, colour, gilding, silver powders, lacquer allows the artist to create without limits.
