From January 26th to February 3rd, on the occasion of BRAFA 2019, the Lin Deletaille Gallery will present an exhibition born of a form of serendipity. The spontaneous impulses that drive us to love an object often seem to result from an instinct shaped by senses, experience and a state of mind that fluctuates with our emotions and our thoughts. Then, as if by magic, the sum of these unconscious choices takes the form of a coherent equation, a metaphor whose sinuous ramifications anchor us and go beyond us.
Since the dawn of time, art has been the incarnation and vehicle of common perceptions about creation, human condition, sensitive and metaphysical worlds. The artist adroitly manipulates symbols and images; he crystallizes the soul of his people and the earth that has engendered them for posterity.
