“In the midst of today” is a contemporary painting of small format on paper.
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.
This small abstract painting on paper is distinguished by its atypical format. The composition presents elements of symmetry, like a shimmering landscape reflected in the water. We like the subtle mix of colours that animates “In the midst of today” a painting full of energy.
We could see this piece as a diptych with “The lapping of time”Discover the artist
