QUESTION : What do you call « painting-sewing »?

1

 Isabelle Agnel Gouzy : From 1989, I started the creation of oil paintings freely on canvases.  One thing leading to another, from one painting to another, the paints adjoin, mix together to  form, according to textures, new sensitive and tactile results.  Later on I discovered Pébéo’s  Setacolor paints which allowed me to understand the size of the fabric, the surface of the  fabric that I have subsequently cut, a unique piece that comes to life on a women’s body. Thus  were my “painting-sewing” came from, that has followed me over time and has allowed me to  achieve many exhibitions, all unique, that soak in the times and environment.

QUESTION : In what way is your exposition at l’Espace Pébéo important to your work?

Isabelle Agnel Gouzy :

In what way is your exposition at l’Espace Pébéo important to your work?
 During this exposition, Pébéo offered me the opportunity to present all of my work without making it a retrospective. This is how I selected oils paintings, drawings, collages… somehow all that makes the essence of my creation. But life, reflection, encounters of new ways and new techniques, has led me to new experiences.

QUESTION : Can you tell us more about your current approach?

 Isabelle Agnel Gouzy : The new thing in my work: paint on a stretcher! Surrounded by the  surface, I approached this with force where sensuality of the canvas embraces the surface  becoming an imprint. This imprint will become the common thread and will push me to  understand the outcome through other surfaces.  With the knot technique and tribute to Simon  Hantaï, I will seize the painted fabric, stretch it, and twist it until I create a canvas before it  becomes a piece of clothing.  Once loosened the fabric reveals invisible flaws, imprints,  markings on the canvas and never revealing the abyss of my creation.
