“A long white feather” is a contemporary painting of small format on canvas by Perrine Rabouin.
With Perrine Rabouin, abstraction is most often an invitation to search for forms. Her orientation between abstraction and figuration is sometimes uncertain. At first glance, abstraction imposes itself, but figuration is there, in germ, and only asks for an attentive look to be explored. Like children who try to guess shapes in the clouds, we like, in the work of this artist, the opportunity that is offered to us to discover the happy accidents of a composition.
Is this small oil on canvas a landscape as the composition and the colours seem to suggest? A sky crossed by white clouds overhanging a meadow?
The figurative references stop at this observation. The other elements of the painting, rectangular and square shapes stretched with a knife, give the painting an abstract dimension.
In “A long white feather”, we like the material effects and the subtle mix of colours.Discover the artist
