    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    In "Carbonized Relics", the relics are put back in their place of honour, they are carbonized (made into charcoal/charcoal) and then constitute the raw material of the work.

    Carbonisation is a form of purification, all the small microorganisms that cause the decomposition of the relic disappear, making the relic timeless. What is interesting about carbonisation is also (especially) that you transmute the material from "vegetable" to "mineral". This transmutation also occurs in the long term in the earth (coal mines) but in my workshop I make sure that it happens more quickly.

    The difference between "burning" and "carbonising" is that when you burn oxygen is present, which decomposes the matter into ashes, during carbonisation there is no oxygen and the matter is petrified.
    Charcoal is for alchemy the symbol of "L'Œuvre au Noir", the first of the four stages. See also the book "L'Oeuvre au Noir" by Marguerite Yourcenar.

Mireille Robbe

Belgium Born in: 1962

Mireille Robbe's work is a research on herself through her suitcase in the painting studio of Maurice Van Saene in Saint Luc - Brussels, reading, intuition, ...

In 2012, one of her works from the VITRIOL series sent her on the path of hidden symbols, which led her to Alchemy (and CG Jung) or, quite simply, to the philosophy of nature, of the universe.
An inexhaustible source of information and inspiration.

She integrates this symbolism and this philosophy only in her mode of reflection and not in the first visual layer of her works.

You will see that all of its concepts are related, even though they look different. This visual difference is partly explained by the fact that the chosen medium depends on the concept and not vice versa.

The common thread of her work is to show us the ingenuity of nature, to make us think about details that escape us because of their so-called obviousness.
