Two artists are in the spotlight in Vaucluse and more precisely, in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue and Fontaine-de-Vaucluse.
It is Amélie JOOS who presents her works at the Campredon Art Center in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. From the first room, we enter a dreamlike universe where the imagination has its place and where the female figure is at the center. Here or there, whether from drawings, collages, sculptures, installations, we find the evocation of tales related to childhood, such as “Alice in Wonderland”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Sleeping Beauty. The exhibition takes us back to our part of inner childhood, but not only...
It takes us to a marvelous, a reverie that emanates from the works, sometimes naive, of Amélie JOOS. Like the common thread that punctuates her works, and that one could imagine embroidered in suspension, she confides to us: “Love, art and dreams keep us alive and help us face adversity, butterflies in our eyes.”

Another creator Claudine ASPAR presents to us at the François Pétrarque Library Museum in Fontaine-de-Vaucluse, her work in the exhibition “Woman Landscape”. She invites us into an original and singular universe open to an imaginary where she explores the secret and mysterious territories of human nature.
She finds inspiration in parallel worlds, ancestral beliefs, mythology and literature. The artist uses different techniques: sculpture, embroidery, painting, drawing, writing... In a profusion of colors and shapes, she develops a work crossed by goddesses, heroes, shamans, real or fantastic characters. Claudine ASPAR revisits, through her creations, legends related to the Source such as “Saint-Véran and the Coulobre”, “the sleeping minstrel and the diamond nymph”, but also to Greek mythology with the myth of Daphne and Apollo who speaks to us of impossible love, but also of an obsessive bond with nature.
We set off on a journey into a magical world, a poetic parenthesis that summons the spirits of nature and evokes Mother Earth, the fountain of Vaucluse, François Pétrarque and his fascination with Laure.
