Launching 6pm, Thursday May 5th
Hang Tough Contemporary is delighted to announce ‘Holding Space’, an exciting collection of beautiful new paintings from Claire Prouvost. ‘Holding Space’ features seventeen vibrant paintings to include works on canvas, plywood and a very special exhibition print release. This collection of paintings is a celebration of the way we exist in our environment while embodied in human form.
Through a playful interaction between shapes and colours, Claire explores the complexity of relationships and human interactions, telling stories through deconstructed figures, intuitive lines and expressive colourful shapes. She explores the multiplicity of facets that compose us by creating collaged characters made of interacting abstract shapes, in a playful and colourful representation of memories, stories and emotions. Her bright coloured, bold and minimal style celebrates diversity, the female form and is inspired by feelings and everyday life.
This series of recent work is a reflection on the balancing act between staying in tune with both the feelings of others and one’s own feelings — during the unpredictable twists and turns of human interactions.
Claire Prouvost is a French visual artist and muralist based in Dublin. Originally from Lille she is represented by Monica Velours in Paris and has worked with the likes of Gucci, Lavazza, Brown Thomas, Guinness and many more. Claire is known for her drawings of charismatic women in a bold, pop and minimalist style. She draws inspiration from the cubist and impressionist art movements. She often diversifies her practice and works with a variety of mediums, from digital illustration, acrylic painting to large-scale murals and street art.
‘Holding Space’ x Claire Prouvost will be hosted in Hang Tough Contemporary, Exchequer St and guests will be invited to book to attend the launch event via Eventbrite. Drinks are kindly provided by Teelings Whiskey.
