Biography

Born in Bayeux in 1954, a graduate of the Ecole nationale supérieure des arts décoratifs in Paris, Catherine Lopes-Curval's work is close to the narrative figuration and to Magritte's poetic imagery. Her very personal language is built around her daily experiences and the images of our culture extracted from literature, cinema and the media.

The themes in Catherine Lopes-Curval's work treat with humor and poetry the human nature and the difficulties of "being". Her universe is inhabited by stereotypes, imaginary characters who are trying desperately to go beyond the boundaries of their own lives.

Her images open up enigmatic and hostile spaces with uncertain exits. Lopes-Curval's scenes of daily life are similar to absurd and wacky fables photographs depicting a turbulent age in search of clarity.

The Georges Pompidou Center has presented in 2000 an important painting by Catherine Lopes-Curval acquired for the national collections thanks to donations from Foundations Scaler and Clarence Westbury.
