“Il y a la coagulation au froid, mais aucune dans la prudence.”
Gertrude Stein, Tender Buttons
DS Galerie is delighted to invite Margaux Meyer to take over the space at the Salon, plunging visitors in between the hot and the cold with an unprecedented group of paintings in which the tumult of brushstrokes lives on. Margaux Meyer’s proposition is divided into two phases - two chambers - like a journey of initiation, a descent beyond the flesh. Coldness first, Bénitier, like the first step of the ritual, welcomes and invites. Then there’s the dampness of things decomposing in a pictorial ballet of bubbling gestures, Peaches (Decomposed), Patatutopia, Lukewarm, and sometimes sharp ones, Canine. From hot to cold, intensely, Margaux Meyer’s painting is a visceral painting, of gestures, those that swarm inside.
Margaux Meyer is an artist born in 1998 in Suresnes (fr) who lives in Paris and works in Aubervilliers. She graduated from the École des Beaux-Arts de Paris (2022). Margaux Meyer’s works could be defined as photographic snapshots where only the colour reacts, where the diaphragm of the lens is so open that it consciously allows most of the image data to be “burnt” by the light; in these pictorial “shots” devoid of any graphic boundaries, everything happens only thanks to these degrees of chromatic modulation, sometimes open and hyper- saturated, sometimes dark and gloomy, in which all the mystery of desire, of a romantic relationship, of a simple abandonment, of a body or of a flower lives on.
