Karine Rougier

Prix Drawing Now

Karine Rougier, represented by espace à vendre, was born in 1982, she lives and works in Marseille. Her drawings reinvent a nature where human forms mingle with animal forms, where invisible bodies and powers unite in the same embrace. Her watercolor washes on paper pass over the shapes and, like a receding tide, leave behind only a few details, a few lines. Crossed by a powerful vital impetus, her compositions are the fruit of an emancipated look that infuses the bodies with desire and power.

Clédia Fourniau

Prix Sisley Beaux-Arts de Paris
pour la Jeune Création

Clédia Fourniau was born in 1992 in Paris, she graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2021 where she trained in the studio of Tatiana Trouvé. Clédia Fourniau sees her work "as an archaeology of the coloured layer, of transparency and light, where painting questions the relationship between the body and space". The works created in series are made of polyurethane resin coloured by the artist and aqueous tinted solutions. The painting-objects come to life in the light, reflecting back to us, leaving the viewer to explore the work and its perception in space.

Emma Picard, represented by the Dupré & Dupré Gallery (Béziers and Paris), has been named the winner of the prix DDESSINPARIS/INSTITUT FRANÇAIS DE SAINT-LOUIS DU SÉNÉGAL. Emma Picard trained in cabinet making and sculpture and now pursues a more conceptual plastic work. At DDESSINPARIS, she presents the Playboys series. Inspired by issues of Playboy Magazine printed in Braille by the National Library in Washington to guarantee equality between citizens, Emma Picard questions the notion of perception and the discrepancy between words and images, objectivity and the universality of desire in the transcription of perception.
