Myriam Louvel is a French artists who uses wire to create works. Faces, shapes and animals are among the creations that can be admired at her gallery in L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue.
The artist sees the most incredibly flexible shapes and forms in her mind's eye and then somehow persuades an inflexible and rigid material to bend to her will. A line? A form? It depends... on whether we follow the meandering of the black line that is drawn in space or play with light; or on whether the gaze flows into the heart of a beam of thick transparencies and vibratory planes.
She creates her own alphabet and hence her own writings. There are passages, repetitions, circulations… There is a muddle, a mess, and yet, at the same time, a construction, a structure; like a troubled mental construct of anarchic dreams.
Plunging inside this work is an invitation to discover a dizzying infinity, hinted at and elusive.
At the exact point where wire and fragility, iron and solidity intersect Myriam Louvel's arachnoid work explores lightness, rigour and poetry.
The artist has exhibited her work at numerous individual and group exhibitions, including:
