ABOUT HELOISE DELEGUE

Héloïse Delègue was born in 1985 in Paris. She graduated in 2012 with a BA in Visual Arts (Hons) from the Sorbonne University in Paris. She has been exhibited internationally in NYC, London, Luxembourg, Rio and Gothenburg.

She has been spot as a "one- to-watch" painter by Rebecca Wilson, chief curator at Saatchiart and former director at the Saatchi Gallery, London. Héloïse now lives and works in Gothenburg, Sweden.

ARTIST STATEMENT

The core of my practice aims at creating lyrical and abstract works of art which, on the surface, people can easily relate to, but yet can still be challenged by the often conflicting relationship between mankind and his natural environment. I try to reveal the beauty, poetry and humour in seemingly mundane aspects of everyday life, as well as revealing profound layers of relationships in communication between people. Autobiography, both real and imagined, also forms the basis of most of my work. Through the use of colours and storytelling, I try to fuse aspects of my identity with myths and factual truths. I try to combine memories and artefacts to produce alternate readings of both my inner world and more universal cultural, political and societal narratives. I usually narrate thoughts using small details I add with ink, charcoal or pastel. Sometimes, some texts scare the surface of the canvas but are never entirely readable. I also source images of faces and the human figure in a multiplicity of activities as my starting point which I then gradually transform into imaginary landscapes. Playing with dimensions of scale and perspective, I endeavour to confuse the viewer into having to look at my work from different angles until, like a jigsaw puzzle, the abstracted pieces begin to fall into place.
