Evelyne Puech

Painter

Evelyne Puech explores reverse glass painting. This technique was widely used for sacral paintings until the Renaissance. It also corroborates the content and meaning of the work of the painter who likes to think upside down, to see things from the other side. It promotes the mobility of her mind. Evelyne Puech's approach constitutes both a movement towards authenticity and an awareness of the irreversible. The accuracy of the gesture takes precedence since what is painted once cannot be touched up again. By leaving an imprint, that of the initial trace, the artist has personally reappropriated this technique with a contemporary support replacing glass by alternating vaporous textures to intensify the material. 
Evelyne Puech offers in all of her work a symbolic connotation, a universe of transparencies and materials, a present including a past through subjects that each person can cross. Her works are generally made up of three or four plexiglas spaced out in order to bring a third dimension, which strongly distinguishes her art.

Rebirth
Through this series, I explore the need to return to the feeling of spontaneity, joy, discovery or feedback towards the free child inside oneself. It expresses the quest to return to the life drive, the a-live, underlining a birth or a rebirth. 
This plastic research raises the question of the need to give up in order to find, to escape something or even to flee to save oneself. "Rebirth" makes it possible to establish a dialogue between painting and the association of different plexiglas. This support stands out through its clarity, its transparency but also its limpidity. This introspection carried out in painting arises at a time when society constantly asks us to confront each other. This is how our choices guide us towards this forgotten freedom: our ability to rehabilitate ourselves by freeing ourselves, by leaving what no longer has any place to be.
