Laurence COURTO

"peintures, dessins"

 

du 29 avril au 17 mai 2014

Vernissage le mardi 29 avril, à partir de 18

La méthode de Laurence Courto est astucieusement empirique. Choisissant

le support-matière qui lui convient, à un instant donné elle se met au travail

« à l’instinct »  sans cesser de questionner le travail sitôt commencé.

Le geste vole allègrement pour ne pas s’alourdir du conditionnement du savoir

acquis qui pourrait s'exercer sur lui. La « précipitation » est donc agissante et

contagieuse. Elle porte qui regarde les œuvres de l’artiste à bondir lui aussi.

 

Le travail commencé peut faire place à autre chose car Laurence Courto se jette

à l’eau  avec l’idée qu’une fois dans le bain elle avisera. L’imprévu, le désordre,

le contretemps peuvent donc être des facteurs d'avènement d'une image qui

emporte l’artiste vers des terres inconnues.

Vient ensuite le temps de la réflexion et parfois de la destruction. Si une œuvre

réalisée ne jette pas à nouveau l’esprit et l’émotion en mouvement Laurence

Courto l'élimine. Mais néanmoins  elle sait faire preuve de patience : l’esprit

critique n’est pas toujours aussi perspicace qu’il n’y paraît un jour précis.

Il est parfois urgent d’attendre. Le temps passé, les œuvres retenues fascinent :

toutes sont chargées de nouveaux « codages » révélateurs de turbulences

de bien des profondeurs.
