The series Visages de Laques experiments with the traditional kanshitsu technique, which consists of giving shape to an object by stiffening a core of fabric with lacquer. Here, this process is used with a new material: hair.
 Hand-woven, like a square of fabric, the lacquer gives it shape, covers and hardens it, while affirming its lightness and elegance.

The masks are like a second skin: they re-identify the person wearing them, thanks to the intrinsic values that the two materials (lacquer and hair) generate. Evoking an atmosphere that is at the same time chimerical, sepulchral and erotic, the work interweaves the spectator through its unexpected shapes and materials, its organic and deep colours, its animal materials. Visage de Laque VDL_A02 is a sculptural work representing a mask. It is sold on its black metal base and can be worn on the face.

The work is made of hand woven synthetic hair and non-polluting French lacquer. The dyes inserted in the lacquer and the gold powder constitute the decoration of this mask. The hair is blond and light brown, the lacquer is in light pink and red tones. The lacquer brings its depth and shine. Inspired by Maison Martin Margiela, the artist is interested in the idea of identity. The hair and its symbolism, refer to a social, cultural and ethnic form.

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.
