Catherine Simoneau-Pestel


Training lacquer, I associate lacquer techniques on different supports, paper, wood, metal, plexiglass. I like to insert mineral, textile materials, the egg shell, the gold leaf or the silver that I oxide with acid.

Over the years, paper has become a favorite medium, which it comes from Nepal, China, Japan, or that I collect ancient books at Emmaüs. Abandoned stories, printed pages that I cut, roller forming cocoons of words suspended to fishing wires in steel structures, or confined to frames.

Diverted stories, written keeping their mystery in a new context, object book, paintings, small installations, the beginnings of a metamorphosis.

Member of I.A.P.M.A. International Association highlighting the role of paper as an art form and as a contemporary art medium.
