About the artwork

Artwork sold in perfect condition

Always exploring memory, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle tries to offer, through his ethereal drawings, a vision of sensuality and the imprint it will leave in us. Here the artist refers to his friend and photographer Maria Kruger with whom he shares a fascination for hands and body ailments. Self-taught, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle has always maintained an emotional relationship with his artistic practice: feelings are his favorite territory of exploration. From the design he goes where his instinct guides him, preferring to work with his own memories, his imagination or a moving model, rather than seeking realism. An obsession, the hands. Possessive, fragile or powerful, sensual or even anonymous, they arise like specters to capture the attention and to provide the essential emotional charge of the composition. With his erratic line, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle tracks down emotions to lay them bare. He explores the sensitive, the ephemeral, the fragile. By accumulation or erasure, the eye is lost and individuals disappear: infinite, perpetual embraces, by forgetting oneself or the other, traits and personalities fade. To express this research, a medium of evidence, drawing. Then the painting. However, even through it, the drawing reappears as an indelible mark. Saturation, breathing, his regrets are apparent: he crosses out, erases and underlines his point. Forbidding himself the eraser, his technique is in the image of his subject: embodied, raw, and spontaneous.

Self-taught, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle has always maintained an emotional relationship with his artistic practice: the feeling is his favorite exploration territory. From the very beginning, he goes where his instinct guides him. He prefers to photograph his model from different angles in order to choose what interests him in a pose, rather than retranscribing the primary truth. 

An obsession, the hands. Possessive, fragile or powerful, sensual or anonymous, they emerge as spectres to capture the attention and to give the essential emotional charge of the composition.

Through his erratic line, Laurent Anastay-Ponsolle tracks down emotions to expose them. He explores the sensitive, the ephemeral, the fragile. By accumulation or deletion, the eye is lost and the individuals disappear: infinite embraces, perpetual, by self forgetfulness or other forgetfulness, the features and the personalities fade away.

To express this research, an obvious medium, drawing. Then painting. However even through this one, the drawing emerges faces like an indelible mark. Saturation, breathing, its repentances are apparent: it scratches erases, erases and underlines its subject. Forbidding himself the use of an eraser, his technique is in the image of his subject: embodied, raw and spontaneous.
