Matana

France Born in: 1971

Originally from Vendée, Matana lives in the Paris region in the Yvelines.

"This artist, eminently creative and passionate, works as a sounding board /" reasonance ". Everything interests her, everything calls out to her. In the chaotic world in which we live, her painting, most often abstract, confusing because it is nervous lively and generous, a touch of Epicurean and eminently sensory, questions the essence and function of life.Thus Matana explores nature, reveals and reinvents in each of her works the grammar of our existence.

As a result, the artist's sources of inspiration are very diverse. In its imaginary museum we will of course find the greatest masters of the 19th and 20th centuries. Impressionist painters of course, first of all Claude Monet, when Matana captures the reflections of light on Camargue waters (Camargue whispers) or those of the Vendée marshes (Marais). But also the fathers of synthetism and symbolism: bright colors, thickness of the flat areas and vigor of the brushstroke, succession of horizontal planes. So in Cyclonie-Cyclona, only the ring is missing. However, the artist's imaginary museum is open to lesser-known artists, including the naive artist Cheval, to whom the author pays homage with his eponymous canvas (Facteur Cheval).

Matana, who likes to decompose and recompose, here rediscovers the power of the ring, of the black line. Matana's drawings contrast sharply with her painting. Exit nature to question men, society. Exit the bright colors to return to the fundamentals.

Thus all the drawings are available in black and white. Yet the project remains the same and the artist offers to embark you by her side on her inner journey, to share with her a unique, disconcerting, often funny experience, imbued with a sweet poetry. "
