Charlotte Houette

— Baby Horse —

Drawing formal inspiration from children popup books, these works are a new development of Houette’s habit of creating openings in her paintings, which for previous series took the form of model-like built-in windows, importing transparency and reflections within the usually opaque canvas surface.

In this new series, the windows have made way for a subtle sliding system acting like a folding screen, that can be manipulated to progressively reveal a screen-print image, or on the contrary to camouflage it completely within the hand-painted starry of flowery pattern of the painting.
