Tribute to Pina Bausch
Everything in Corinne Malfreyt’s practice is a story of energy and symbiosis. Her oil paintings compose and marry the elements in an always circular movement of matter, symbolizing for the artist time and the cycle of life.
The series of paintings “The Rite after Pina”, a tribute to dance and to the famous German choreographer Pina Bausch, evokes through the movement of bodies the eternal return of things, from disappearance to rebirth, from completion to new beginnings.
With this panel of sensations, the artist then practices on the canvas to retranscribe these stops in time by creating material effects – drips or layers of paint on the background, additions of grains of sand, marked pencil strokes – which come with great finesse to suggest silhouettes with dominant grey-blue shades in the image of the renewal of the spring sky.DISCOVER
