Lauren Coullard & Tatiana Defraine
The booth features a series of small formats, new works made by Tatiana Defraine and Lauren Coullard specially for Art-o-rama. The works are displayed in-line close to one another. The display resonates like an anadipolosis, a rhetorical device involving the repetition of the last word of a preceding clause. The sequence of paintings becomes a poem or a lullaby where each work generates a
certain rhythm, forming a new hybrid entity.
Lauren Coullard’s painting germinates and feeds itself into a systematic short circuit between abstraction and figuration, mythology and fiction. Coullard imposes confidently and proudly an anachronistic transfiguration of the present, allowing her characters – mostly female – to rise from her unstoppable desire to snatch light from the canvas.
