Sound as a final glazing

By Pierre Von-Ow

For a few years now, Christine Vannier has been completing her creations with the addition of a recorded sound. Facing her multidisciplinary work, you may also now experience the internal thoughts of the artist. The subtlety of her impressive compositions resides in a harmonious blend made from her palette. Christine Vannier loves the riot of colors. She uses strong colors – fuchsia, lemon yellow, cyan blue – in her paintings as well as in her personal wardrobe, but she refuses any sort of color indecency. In the same way, the artist is fascinated by exuberance in action during ephemeral moments that reveal the inwardness of all the people she meets, from New York to Katmandu.

The progressive increasing of the dimensions of her paintings is the consequence of her desire to do a physical confrontation with the color and the spectator. Sharing is the raison d’être of her practice, Moving is her obsession and Women are the heart and the media of her reflection. In this triptych, Christine Vannier designs a sort of an intimate geography that we are invited to explore with her voice for guide.

How Christine Vannier was led to this concept of ‘’speaking works” is mostly due to her passion for music. The composition of her composite canvas deeply interacts with the melody of their creation. The fascinating part of Christine Vannier’s work is this supplément d’âme she integrates in our contemplation. The decision to turn to sound is also a result of this desire to be enveloped by the work, but also from her aspirations to be closer to the viewer. Christine Vannier is free and unabashed in using all the media. But there is one material she truly perfects: the sound. The latter is like a final glazing on her work, but the most subtle, the most encompassing and the most impressive. Her speaking works establish an intimate connection with each viewer, feeling a personal experience within the exhibition place, maybe a good definition of what happen after art.
