Sylvie Goy Granger
At Sylvie Goy Granger, there is this strength, this need to extract that part of oneself and to give up its look. The approach is analytical and full of complexity, under a coated appearance, it has as ambition, and not least of ambition, to show the emanation of the divine: the light that sparkles in each of the beings, it is the part of the divine or the Aspiration to the divine in each of us that emanates here and there. The light certainly, but Sylvie also shows the part of shadow that one crushes behind the veneer of appearances.
Sylvie wants to reveal the light, the sublime. "I seek to see the part of beautiful, of divine in beings". It is in this momentum and in this movement, always very linear, that the silhouettes rise in an infinite movement of ascension. Enigmatic and eventful, Sylvie's painting is nourished with complexity and almost every halo of light is adorned with a haunting shadow: "the two go together, the obscure light is an aesthetic foundation but a physical reality above all". And on a philosophical level it is constitutive of beings in their ambivalence.
The myth of the cave of Platon could be an echo of those questions that still tread the human race. In this series Sylvie also paints shields, "these human shells", of which we find here some instances is particularly emblematic of this duality of appearance / interiority and is
|almost symptomatic of
Sylvie's approach, in perpetual reflection, and perhaps even In full
combat, between what is seen and what is hidden. The shell and
substance. Shadow and light, the obscure light once agai
An approach that is resolutely positive and even if the analysis of works can reveal much more complexity than it seems, it dares to present itself as it is, in all simplicity. The bias has something to denote at the time when the lugubre recipe and precisely, it is much better! And whatever the trend, this woman / artist does not cease hammering his leitmotiv: to show the marvelous in being.
