The exhibited artists at Montjoie

Most of the exhibited works come from the FACTO Collective, comprising some twenty visual artists from Toulouse, who have decided to come together and pool their ideas and know-how. Their objectives: to be fully in line with the current artistic field, and to establish a bridge between so-called Neoclassical Art and so-called Contemporary Art. Other independent artists have gradually joined the Domaine de Montjoie gallery.

Trained in artistic ironwork as well as artistic and cultural professions, Farid Achezegag naturally turned to sculpture. Nourished by the universe of American comics, mythologies, inspired by César and Palolo Valdès, he chose steel as his favorite material. Pebbles gleaned from the seaside and rivers were quickly added to the latter. His characters made up of multiple pieces are similar to three-dimensional puzzles. Today, he divides his time between his sculptures and the construction of sets for the Capitole theater in Toulouse.

Françoise ANGIBAUD devotes herself to painting after a career in haute couture which has become a second passion for her. Self-taught, she attended workshops in Toulouse: Kraft, Les Artistes Occitans, Atelier M. Coste where she learned figurative art. From her job she keeps the assurance of the gesture, the sense of shapes and volumes. She paints as she speaks, with joy, warmth and spontaneity. Through his paintings, we find his passion, his creative energy and his talent as a colorist.

This triptych of cotton organdy panels was made using the Japanese hand-painted techniques of katazome, tsutsugaki and sugaki. These freehand and resist dyeing techniques involve, among other things, the use of stencils and a cornet to apply a rice paste to the textile before painting in order to trace part of the patterns. "La Fleurée" designates the state in which the indigo pigment of the pastel forms on the surface of the dye tank after stirring.

One fine morning in March 2019, Jean-Louis Capou wakes up wanting to paint. Since self-taught, his "vibratory painting" is born with a palette made up of primary colors. His paintings are executed in acrylic with a knife and / or spatula mostly in the fresh, allowing the viewer to be fully guided in spontaneity by gesture in space and time. Traces, shadows, imprints and juxtaposition of several spaces that fit together and thus give you access to other dimensions. His work is open to any interpretation, to any sensation. And you... What do you see?

Born August 1, 1968 in Barcelona, Paule discovered photography with her father. Very early on, she took part in the development and printing of silver photos in the family laboratory....Strengthened by this experience, which she completed with training as a web designer and graphic designer, she then turned to the creation of original works made from his shots. From now on, color reigns supreme, the line is assertive and the emotion at the rendez-vous! An inexhaustible source of inspiration, the city of New York, where she has lived for more than eighteen years, is very present in her creations.

From the age of 12, Jack FOURNIER draws and plays with a brush. Around the age of 15, he met a Russian painter Rostislav Loukine who became his master and who advised him to study at the School of Fine Arts in Reims. The bright colors of his palette express his character well. Currently retired, Jack FOURNIER continues his path in Art. He is responsible for two associations: one Granges des Arts in Colombey les Deux Eglises and the other Tourelles des Arts in old Chaumont.

Her works are based on line work which has given itself the motto of translating, transcribing the different states of nature, in its micro and macrocosms. Find the universes by the creative power, conscious of the variation of the gestures, the basic reasons, in order to find the value and the power of the elements, via the water, the earth, the air and the fire. Her works are based on deep meditations, in an altered state of consciousness. The readings of philosophers such as Bachelard and Bergson are the foundations, as well as an assiduous observation of nature, in situ.

Laurent LAFONTAS artistic research has led him to experiment in various fields and with different materials: drawing, modelling, sculpture, video and animated film. As part of an environmental approach, he assembles different metals together and favors the use of recycled materials which are most often the starting point for his creations. Currently, he makes monumental works, the size of which is constantly increasing.

Based in Lanta, in the suburbs of Toulouse, Steliana MOCANU is a discreet artist of great humanity. His painting bears witness to this, not being able to help but noticeably include the presence of man in his abstract work. Joyful Shadows, which his colorful palette of his paintings, combined with a solid sense of construction and light, affirm as high quality work. Originally from Romania, she presents a universal, almost magical lyrical work, bringing the viewer to reflection before this metaphorical world... In short, an art of living like a sweetness.

Anthropomorphic fruits are at the heart of his artistic approach. Often linked to gluttony and sensuality, this synergy does not fail to solicit deeper feelings, inherent in the human condition. It is through bronze that he chose to crystallize his creative visions.

The creations of Cercus present an original and contemporary graphic design, by the use of new techniques and processes. Jean-Baptiste began his studies in the field of wood and furniture in 2003, at the Lycée des Métiers d'Arts in Revel. There he acquired a pronounced taste for the creation of decorations and patterns combining wood with various materials and was particularly attached to finishing work.
Après avoir rejoint le collectif de créateurs "L'Atelier Folie Douce", il s'installe comme indépendant à Toulouse et se spécialise dans la marqueterie de paille.

He started photography in 2007 and, very quickly, his inspiration turned towards enigmatic atmospheres. In 2009, the discovery of exploration photography (exploring places built and abandoned by man) was a revelation. He has always been attracted by the notions of traces, of memory, and it is by pushing the doors of certain abandoned buildings that he discovered singular atmospheres, charged with emotions and poetry. The photo then takes on its full meaning. It is a memory and a tribute, the transcription of the unique story that each place whispers to its gaze...

Her pictorial universe is dark and rough, disturbing, brutal, frontal, highlighted by a graphic writing made of scrapings, scratches or incisions with a cutter. The pastels are pressed and crushed, symbolizing heaviness, hard-to-remove oil stains. His characters are ghostly and strike the eye with their insistence. They question. Painting is for her another way of saying things, a freedom of being. Where words fail, painting expresses itself. Her pictorial approach is part of an emotional contemporaneity.

Like Picasso or Dubuffet, Gérard BOGO renews reality in its permanent nature. His gaze on women is closely linked to a fractured, recomposed, broken drawing while retaining a major aesthetic line. Figurants of abstraction, profiles, reflections or shadows, women with haughty looks, riders of time, are the result of a loving work of drawing and its perspectives.
However, Gérard BOGO does not forget the Flamboyant. Let's color the life of our sculptures! An escape of colors in the phenomenology of the imagination.

With her H2O series Isabelle Chapelain tackles the question of transmission, a theme that is very dear to her. Family transmission of course, but also transmission in the broader sense: what have we received, what have we sown, what will we leave to future generations? The circle is the symbol of this reflection. It is the link in the chain, the link between the past and the future, the eternal restart.

"It is from the liveliness of the color, its richness, its thickness, that my works take shape. It is this which guides me, little by little, towards the subject of the painting. More precisely: From the emotion felt is born the form, the pictorial theme, the situation. The moment of creation wants to be gesture, impulse, emotion; thereafter the imagination organizes this disorder, it redraws it. The infinitely large joins the infinite If for me, the scenes represented in my paintings describe intimate landscapes, each of us is free to find his own story there, free to imagine: There is the exchange."

Michel Gallot is part of the contemporary abstract art movement. His style is
pure and sharp, in the constant search for the perfect line. Most of the time he improvises and favors spontaneity. He paints randomly and more or less figurative elements appear. The encrustation of arabesques made with a knife airs his canvas, gives it a perspective and a depth that break and disturb the logic of the gaze. Silhouettes take shape, urban landscapes, suspended in time, appear in compositions that are alternately abstract, figurative, or aerial. His artistic sense, in the wake of abstract art, becomes a universal language.

"The Work-Trace"
Universal vibrations at the Trace: an approach that is both intimate and global revealed
by gesture. A spontaneous Art in search of harmony. He is in constant search of the ultimate "gesture", in a quest for different, personal and intimate traces, which nevertheless resonate at the heart of a universal Whole, leading him towards a desire for communion and spiritual elevation. The main thing is the power and purity of intention. If the momentum is good, the vibration and the trace will be beautiful. Everything is subtle energy.

Enhance spaces, create plays of light, achieve a subtle marriage of colors and materials, here is the leitmotif that animates his daily life. She chose this job to give emotion and make people's eyes sparkle. Its objective: Find the “idea” that will make your space a unique place and thus reveal its added value.

NABARUS art is protean. Several ways come together, in the form of series which are all facets of a blossoming talent. The houses, the engravings, the paintings, the monotypes, are created with the concern, for each of them, of exploring in depth a technique until finding all the meanings it can produce. What is striking about the artist is that his passion is embodied both in the themes and in the techniques, each feeding on the other to produce the work.

The only path that makes sense is that of Consciousness. Awareness of ourselves, of our strengths, of our weaknesses. Awareness of what constitutes us, of what surrounds us, of what crosses us. Sculpting, among other things, allows him this; to come ever closer to this state of Consciousness.

The abstract paintings of Benoît THIEL reveal an imagination and a singular expression. He diverts different tools from their primary destination to appropriate them and thus bring out, through scratching techniques, superposition of materials and colors, a certain transparency and lightness of the work. He leaves each visitor free in his feelings, his imagination in the face of graphics and colors.

A poetic abstraction...
For O.J. Vincent, it is a question of bringing out of the canvas the poetic, sensory or spiritual dimension of everything that connects us to ourselves and to what surrounds us. Prioritize the vivid expression of emotions. And give all its place to the imagination. Giving substance to our inner voices and revealing their musicality, catching dreams in full flight and trying to capture their impalpable reality, undertaking the crossing of appearances and questioning, down to the tiniest... For him, each work is an Elsewhere embodied.

Exhibited in France and abroad, notably in Indonesia, Spain and Belgium, as part of collective events, her career has slowly evolved from figuration to abstraction and her pictorial expression, always imbued with the same sensitivity, has is gradually internalized. Seduced by the luminosity of the Atlantic atmosphere, the transparency of the air, her oceanic blues have never ceased to influence her work. She keeps the nostalgia of spaces. Contrasting shapes and colors respond and confront each other in balanced structures and colored harmonies. Guided by a mastered instinct, her painting is a source of appeasement and fulfillment.

Pierre DESENFANT is the Founder of the contemporary art gallery ART4YOU. He deepened his knowledge by following a course on “aesthetics and ethics” at the Sorbonne PARIS. He seeks to provoke a raw initial emotion before it turns into a waking dream over the interpretations of pictorial details. His painting, freed from a figurative context, participates in the creation of a language where lines and shapes are emancipated from reality to create a dreamlike universe.

Branch of the satellite image analysis company Pixstart (a Toulouse company created in 2016 by 3 specialists in artificial intelligence and earth observation by satellites), Earth Is An Artist brings together the most beautiful works of our planet. When images for scientific purposes are diverted from their initial function, and presented for their aesthetic aspect, we quickly realize that the earth has an unexplored artistic sensibility. Carefully selected by our team, the images are chosen for their composition, their colors, or their ability to intrigue the imagination...

Kellestom, painter, graduate of the Beaux-Arts in Paris: the discovery and observation of cities and people around the world constitute a constant source of inspiration. For her, Art is a vector to another dimension, a way to bring out the underlying reality, dormant behind appearances. She likes large formats and collages of matter and she is passionate about light and movement. What fascinates her the most is the energy emanating from the human presence. It is in a process of sharing and exchange with the public.

Designer in digital cartography and passionate about painting, Fahima now shares through her works the sublime, the immensity and the depth of landscapes. The pictorial language is the connection vector linking her intuition, her emotions and her sensitivity. Her approach is figurative painting enriched by the abstract. She sometimes likes to identify with a filmmaker or a director who feels the need to radically change the theme for each of his films. Through her painting, she shares her personal experiences, her memories and everything that drives her to create. Let yourself be immersed in her works and create your story!

Having a structured, geometric approach, her work sits on a texture with an omnipresent organic tendency. The arrangement of lines, colors and reflections generates a feeling of calm. The black diffused in the whites, the bright red, the blue or the yellow bring to the perception a necessary depth of field.
Her singular and atypical journey is only the reflection of an introspection, an inner look, a vibration of the soul. Freedom again...

Whether it represents Horse Power, Goûter à la liberté or the Habit does not make the monk, the work of the painter Rolf Saint-Agnès clearly announces the colors: those of pop art and its holy trinity Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Keith Haring. For a decade, he made the Big Apple his adopted city and pop art his artistic religion. Over the years and his travels around the world, the artist's brush has become unique. If pop art still permeates his art, it does not alienate a very assertive personality. One could compare his work to the ship of the Argonauts. Constantly refitted, the ship no longer retained a single original plank but remained the same as itself.

The senses are in turmoil, the emotions wake up captivated by these effervescences of colors. Coated in intoxicating smoke, the light springs forth. Acidity, dissolution make the composition sparkle. Her approach consists of awakening inner sensations and emotions by mixing representations of natural or chemical elements (space, clouds, water, smoke, stains, organs, blood flow, effervescence, soft layers...) the goal is to create a dreamlike bubble where gestures, movements and colors connote real images, memories or wishes.

A plastic painter close to the earth sensitive to the environment and its link with humans. Humanist and philosopher apprentice and in search of relevance. A gourmet of wonder... While continuing the quest for the pulse that drives us, in connection with tactile sensations, she maintains a close relationship with materials and works with hands or fingers in color, digging, scratching the matter. Layer after layer, it veils then unveils, leaving plenty of room for repentance, like a trace of history in its tangled impulses and doubts.
