Carla's statement

Carla Talopp's work is a celebration of the power and beauty of life. Reflecting a feminine, lively, sexual nature, the boundaries are lost between a buried, underwater, sometimes disturbing world and a teeming, wild, free jungle.

Press review

Carla Talopp's is a multifaceted artist whose cross-disciplinary practice reveals a plurality of forms. Nourished by the work of Sonia Delaunay, a pioneer of plastic experimentation at the beginning of the 20th century, she affirmed her taste for the visual arts to which she chose to devote herself fully after training at ESAG Penninghen (Paris) and a stint at the famous Rhode Island School of Design (United States).

 

Through drawing, painting and ceramics, she grasps the concerns of this changing world, echoing her personal history. With her large formats, she measures herself against the vastness of her canvases, leading to the liberation of the painted forms, imbued with a luxuriant nature whose bright and exacerbated colours are almost like an unreal world. Whether they are teeming jungles or sparkling sea beds, these painted worlds reflect the artist's real understanding of the future of nature and its ecosystems.

 

Tinged with events that have marked her career, Carla Talopp's art transports and moves us, both lyrical and rational, it elevates us and brings us together around essential and highly unifying values.
