WE LIKE THE APPROACH
“Andy Warhol & the confined woman” belongs to the “Room portraits” series. In his drawings, Damien Nicolas Roux imagines superb interiors decorated around a prestigious artist’s work. To stage the reproduced painting, he inserts iconic furniture, lighting and collectors’ items. His freedom as a facetious artist sometimes leads him to construct a second mise en abyme. Thus he slips one of his own works into this imaginary interior. Indeed, Damien Nicolas Roux is also a plastic artist and creates obelisks and pyramids in cardboard and brass. They fit perfectly into the decor. The work is in the work, but so is the artist, since he plays at hiding his signature (DNR) in his drawing, can you see it? Finally, he never forgets to add a little life in the form of a human or animal presence.
Each drawing is accompanied by a coloured paper mat in one of the colours recommended by the artist. A work with surprising and accomplished techniques, which mixes references to painting, architecture and decorative arts.
WE LOVE TO KNOW MORE
“Andy Warhol & the confined woman” reproduces a 1970 screen-printed photograph “Flowers” by the Pop Art master. In Damien Nicolas Roux’s composition, the painting is hung above a Ball chair by Eero Aarnio. It is a perfect match for the USM modular base units, which include a Panarea vase by Olivier Gagnère. The Pianet wall lamp (edited by Please Wait To Be Seated) balances the ensemble.
We also like the humour of Damien Nicolas Roux who has decorated this sublime refuge with one of his creations: a triumphal arch, a neoclassical ornament. A way to make this confined woman travel…
