04_anne-lise_coste_noguerasblanchard_vessels

Born in Marignane (France) in 1973, Anne-Lise Coste is known for her radical approach, in which the creative potential of her art is articulated in the spontaneous gesture and what is directly said, written and painted. In her works, Coste opposes the standardization of art and uncompromisingly points out the fleeting nature of the moment. Drawing plays a main role in portraying a universe based on her idiosyncratic codes: her imagination and daily life being the raw material that inspires her works.

Coste employs in her work –whether airbrush, spray paint, lacquer, acrylic or oil– her drawings and texts, brimming with immediate and spontaneous gestures, are often reminiscent of graffiti and urban space. These compositions of simple schematic shapes and words refer, among other things, to the long history of Art Brut. Considered by the artist to represent the freedom of childhood –but also resistance– this combination of “naïve” lines and specifically referential words or symbols casts a view onto both the violence of our society and the beauty of the world.

Parar la fresca

Fonteta
Jun 18 - Aug 03, 2021

We’re delighted to present a joint project by Bombon, Galeria Joan Prats and NoguerasBlanchard in Fonteta, a small village in the Empordà region from June to September.

The exhibition, conceived in two chapters (the first opening June 18th and the second August 7th) brings together artists from three different generations. The proposal begins with a concept from the Empordà Parar la fresca (to take in fresh air) described by Josep Pla in the book Las Horas (The Hours), 1953.

“The press is a watchdog. Not a lapdog. A watchdog. Now, a watchdog can’t be right all the time. He doesn’t bark only when he sees or smells something that’s dangerous. A good watchdog barks at things that are suspicious.” -Dan Rather (American journalist and a former anchor for CBS Evening News)

Shining by Absence

Barcelona
May 28 - Jul 25, 2009

Shining by Absence means as much as ‘present absentness’ – something had previously existed, but is now no longer there. This involves a precise moment that is ultimately hardly perceptible and thoughts that flash through the mind, that come and go.
