After studying at Fine Arts, then in the wall workshop of the Paris art school (ENSAAMA), Martine Lafont began her career with the creation of monumental frescoes for theater and architecture public. She then turned to scenography, exhibitions, events and visual communication. She devotes herself to her initial passion today: painting. "After a childhood spent in France, I lived a few years in Iran and then in Argentina bathed in new influences for me. I kept the fervent taste of the unknown and diversity, always present in my inspiration. I draw simple and raw emotions, always "off topic". The purpose of my paintings is to leave the lives of women and men outside the frame, preserve their intimacy, and never stage them. The absence of the subject is found in my series on beds. The elusive, we find him in my current research when I look out the window of a train carried away. Of course, the subject does not have time to take the break and the easel becomes useless: 320 km/hour, it is the space-time I need to grasp the hazards of these improbable arrangements that you will not see again.
