After 10 years past in the interior design sector , Aurélie MARTIGNAC decides to devote herself exclusively to the ARTISTIC CREATIONS OF MOSAICS.
Leaving markers, inks and brushes for this millennium Art becoming today her means of expression.
EVIDENCE OF MOSAÏC
Everything happened during a trip in Tunisia in 2006. The evidence came to her filling with admiration for the immense mosaïcs of Bardo Museum. Pure attraction, they were a revelation : "a moment that met all my inner being and resonating in me".
"The mosaic remains an eternal artistic expression."
PAINTINGS ON CANVAS
Paintings on canvas, acrylic and brilliant paint, 2006, created and inspired by mosaïcs after Tunisa's travel.
INTRODUCTION TO THE MOSAÏC
After many years of Art and Architecture of interior's studies, she furthered her technical and artistic skills by specializing her as a MOSAÏC ARTIST , vocation training at the Atelier de la Ronde des Tesselles, 2013-2014.
PROCESS, TECHNICAL AND INSPIRATIONS
Her mosaics are the result of an experimental journey through which she explores the wealth of material . She pays great importance to the ESSENCE of each stone, its SHAPE and its NATURAL VIBRATION.
Sensitive to the subtleties of feelings : materials, optical mixtures, rhythms, light, she wants to reveal to the viewer,
how the UNION fragments of materials called "tesserae" can create visual and sensory balance. Composed of many facets, the MOSAIC is the image of the HUMAN BEING .
Her creations reflect inner parts of ourselves, a vision through the prism of duality : male / female, dark / light, sometimes unexplored inner resources.They are the expression of the creative illusion of duality, the subtle interplay between opposites that actually form a perfect UNIT.
Through the mosaic, it gathers fragments of materials that reveal us a path to Self.
Fascinated by the color intensity, she revisits this ancient art by playing with contrasts BLACK MATS and BLACK BRILLIANTS that sublimate color. No realism, no landscape. Her world is that of imagination .
An abstract imagination where geometric shapes mingle, contrast, motion effects given by the LIGHT.
The INDIAN CULTURE , EASTERN and ASIAN are her sources of inspiration, giving her the opportunity to discuss unsuspected riches and varied, both in terms of color, architecture, human identity and the creation of environnementale.Fascinated by LIFE and NATURE, the connection between the human being and the mystic are, for her, a deep source of creativity which converge both mathematics and philosophy of life.
"I expose everything VIBRATING inside myself from the world. My emotions, my dreams, my visions, my images and impressions received by my inner being though travels and life experiences."
Beyond the technique, she experiments without limits, searching multiple channels of creation with the aim of opening the individual to new sensory paths.
Her work is also inspired by many different styles of great artists such as : Pierre SOULAGES, Jean DUBUFFET,
Gustave KLIMT, Claude MONET, Charles BAUDELAIRE, Claude DEBUSSY ...
Her creations are unique pieces of Art, artistic frames but also decorative murals mosaïcs, creations for her customers, customized unique orders. She also incorporates gemstones from INDIA : Onyx, Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli, Amethyst, Crystal Rocks, chrysoprases, Malachite, Indian Rupees ... she selects its by herself.
She cuts the tesseraes with a clip wheels : Briare enamels matt & gloss, antique stoneware, terracotta enamelled, mirrors. She also uses various materials such as colored glass, ceramic or earthenware.
The result of the UNION of different materials is paramount. She gives a particular interest in creating differences of thicknesses and levels for that she makes a live work to observe rendering.
We find in her compositions, the bases of sacred geometry : the SPIRAL (natural movement of life, creative source) DNA segments, geometric figures such as FLOORS OF PENROSE and SACRED SYMBOLS (AUM, Life flowers. ..), dimensions based on the FIBONACCI SEQUENCE and GOLDEN RATIO NUMBERS to create HARMONY and
RESONNANCE, unique to each.
Finally, other areas are totally FREE : intuitive creativity is released and her creations are the result of a moment of "PURE CREATION".
"I create to be in the process of creation, this spacetime where I experiment, I collect scattered
fragments of matter, always being in a perpetual research of plastic and a sensory approach."
