Delphine Dessein


Delphine Dessein was born in the north of France in Lille. Very early on, she was passionate about drawing, painting and colors. She followed a training in arts-platics and obtained a license at the Faculty of Tourcoing then she followed a year of courses at the Fine Arts in Dunkirk. In 2011, she was drawn up by the Elly's restaurant in Saint-Raphaël to organize her first personal exhibition! Subsequently, she participated in several collective and individual exhibitions. Today, Delphine finds a balance between her northern roots and her love for the Var region. Painting allows him to meet an intrinsic need, to express his feelings on society and to transmit the humanist values ​​which are dear to him. The fluorescent colors that she uses through her paintings and sculptures reveal a real "hymn to life"! Developing and improving the human soul in order to be sincerity is for Delphine Dessen the main virtue of painting. His paintings, his sculptures and his drawings are a reflection of a spirit seeking to free himself from the conditioning in which each individual is shaped; According to his culture, his education, his customs ... whether with expressiveness or with irony, Delphine Desssin exposes her feeling on an often complex society, where her slender characters (nematoids and sciapoids) are in search of a better world. Nematoids are ambivalent filiform beings that are sometimes harmful, sometimes beneficial, in analogy with man. In search of a boom, an elevation, an "elsewhere". In their hypnotic eyes appears their vision of the world. In round spirals for some, these mountain nematoids symbolize calm and serenity. In rectangular or square spirals for others, these plains nematoids represent enmity as well as aggressiveness. Their cries are even deafening! Sciapoïdes, on the other hand, are unique mythological ascetics at the gigantic foot thus allowing them to protect themselves from the sun during meditation. The fluorescent nuances evoke an exacerbated effervescence, a dynamism, a vitality. Love, express, doubt, shout ... are part of the benevolence that it is important to agree so that a "spirit of freedom" can take shape with all your "being". It is for Delphine the famous "design of freedom".
